    The Alaska Supreme Court has continually ruled that the state must fund abortions, so Dunleavy slashed the amount it has been spending on the deadly practice from the state judiciary’s budget.

    I love it. The governor makes it clear that Federal funds cannot be used, so it has to be state funds. And those funds have to come from somewhere.
