Governor Lauds the State House for Passage of House Bill 35
Governor Sarah Palin today thanked state representatives for their efforts in passing House Bill 35, a bill that would require parental notice and consent before girls under the age of 17 could have an abortion.
"Today, 22 members of the House of Representatives took a significant step toward protecting Alaska's children and strengthening Alaska's families," Governor Palin said. "The most important thing at stake is the right of Alaska's children to receive the support and input of their parents as they face a life-changing decision. I strongly urge Senate leaders to give this bill a committee hearing, as they did not last year, and to bring it to the floor, where every senator would have a chance to say 'yes' to protecting Alaska's most precious resource, the lives of our children."
