This editorial first appeared in the Anchorage Daily News:
When Gov. Sean Parnell vetoed an expansion of Denali KidCare in 2010, he said there was one reason he’d changed his position from support to opposition — KidCare funds included medically necessary abortions.
He said he couldn’t do anything about the legal requirement to cover abortions under current limits, but he could prevent the expansion of such services. He’s also said that if such an expansion arrives at his desk again, he will veto it again.
