ANCHORAGE - Gov. Sean Parnell plans to appear at a fundraiser this week for an abortion initiative that will appear on this summer's ballot.
Alaskans for Parental Rights e-mailed a notice on Wednesday's event in Anchorage.
The initiative would require parental notification for girls under 18 seeking an abortion.
Parnell campaign spokeswoman Michelle Toohey confirmed Parnell's plans to attend. She says the governor supports the initiative and has made that support "fairly obvious."
The Republican Parnell faces his own party primary in August.
