I was shocked to hear of Gov. Sean Parnell's decision to veto the funding for Denali KidCare, which passed with support of 52 of our 60 legislators.
What about the children who are alive and hurting?
Children grow into adults, which in turn have children and become parents. We want our children to have a good, healthy and productive start so that when they interact and shape the world, they do so with a good base, a solid moral character and positive outlook on life.
How does Gov. Parnell expect that to happen if we don't give them the best start to life possible?
Please consider the mothers and fathers who chose life and who now need this program funded.
