Excellent twist in Alaska about tax-payer funding of abortion

If it weren’t such a serious topic this would be a real hoot.

Alaska’s governor and legislature are against public funding of abortion.  However, the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that tax payers had to pay for abortions.

To deal with that problem, the governor used his gubernatorial power and deducted from the Court’s budget the amount that had to go to pay for abortions.

Sweeeeet.

The story is a LifeSite.

    “In defiance of the constitution, liberal justices have pretended they have the power to appropriate money, even though appropriation power is expressly reserved to the Legislature.”

    Well ain’t that interestin’. Thanks LifeSite.
