My ass is in beautiful Anchorage Alaska to volunteer with the Alaskans Against Government Mandates No on 2 Campaign.
Ballot Measure 2 is an intrusive new government mandate that puts bureaucrats and the courts right in the middle of Alaska's families. It would establish a parental notification law…and when the government attempts to mandate parental communication teens are put at risk.
Alaskans will head to the polls Tuesday August 24 to vote and we sincerely hope they vote NO on 2!
I know a little something about parental notification laws…we’ve got ‘em in the Midwest.
I volunteer at several shelters for teen mothers in St. Louis city and one of the first things I noticed was that some of the residents have fantabulous relationships with their parents and some have not so fantabulous relationships with their parents.
For a bunch of my students at the shelters, they were get kicked out of their homes even as they face an unwanted pregnancy they did not have the legal right to make reproductive health care choices about.
We don’t need government planting itself in the middle of our family business.

And if you live in Alaska, vote this August 24th…and vote NO on 2!
p.s. – I’ll try to take pictures of the mountains…they are AMAZING!!
