Trail Life USA has officially launched as an alternative to the Boy Scouts of America, an organization in unnecessary disarray following its decision to unhinge itself from its moral foundations regarding sexuality. Although BSA still does not allow gays to serve as leaders, it is clear that there are real-world legal ramifications for those who choose to stay.
Alaska Family Council/Action is pleased to encourage you to visit Trail Life USA's new website and determine for yourself the type of organization you want to have your child in. We are grateful that there is now another faith-based scouting option that will have its footing on solid ground as opposed to changing its policies based on political correctness and funding streams.

ABORTION CLINICS CLOSING AT RECORD RATES
One of the best untold stories of the past year is the fact that abortion clinics are being closed in unprecedented numbers across the country. In Anchorage, a former abortion clinic is now occupied byCPC Pregnancy Center - a ministry providing compassionate care to those facing unexpected pregnancies. In 2013, there have been 44 clinics across the country that have closed their doors.
According to a recent article in Christianity Today, "the reasons given for the upswing in closings are varied even among pro-lifers. They include:
- the increasing state regulation and oversight of clinics;
- a significant decline in the abortion rate.
In some cases, clinics have shut down when abortion doctors retired or were no longer licensed. " Regardless of the reasons, it is clear that the abortion business is on the decline and for that we can be truly grateful. Grateful for the unborn lives saved. Grateful for the heartaches avoided. Grateful for the opportunity to speak truth with love to those who are hurting and in need of help and grace - as we all are.
