Dr. James Dobson Calls Out Republican Senators Murkowski & Collins for Voting ‘No’ on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Feb 5, 2018
— James Dobson, Ph.D. issues the following statement:


“I simply cannot let the U.S. Senate’s failure to pass the Pain-Capable Act fade into memory without letting the American people know about it. The Christian community would be complicit if we allowed such a disgraceful vote to simply get lost in the news cycle. This common sense and compassionate bill would have outlawed abortion after 20-weeks, the point at which a baby can feel the mortal pain experienced during an abortion.

“The Senate’s betrayal on Pain-Capable is compounded all the more by the two ‘no’ votes cast by Republicans Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine. The final tally was 51-46 in favor, eight votes short of the 60 required to continue the bill along the legislative process. Their decision to vote ‘no’ flies in the face of public opinion and common decency.

“The Republican Party platform has long supported such pro-life legislation, and polling shows that more than 60 percent of the American public is in favor of banning abortion after the five-month mark. In fact, only seven nations, including China and North Korea, allow such barbarism. Both Sens. Murkowski and Collins should be aware that Family Talk and all pro-life groups will not forget their inhumane and wrongheaded decision.

“Shirley and I are praying for the softening of these senators’ hearts, and for the hearts of all of those who voted ‘no.’ We encourage everyone who believes in protecting the lives of the unborn to write letters, send emails, and call these senators’ offices. Below, we’ve provided email hyperlinks and phone numbers to make it as easy as possible. Please join in the fight for America’s most vulnerable and together, let’s light up the phones of the ‘no’ votes on Pain-Capable.”

Will The United Nations Be Your Doctor?

Opposition is building to a proposed World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty. JDFI has been sounding the alarm for months, but the Biden administration has continued its negotiations with WHO. Under the proposed changes, WHO, a United Nations entity, would have sweeping new powers over public health authorities and elected officials in the U.S. and around the world. In addition, all signs point to the treaty not being sent to the Senate for ratification, but being agreed to, unilaterally, by the White House.

Religionless Christianity

Our friend, Eric Metaxas, is quickly becoming a modern Paul Revere for the American Church. On the heels of his 2022 book, Letter to the American Church, which described the disturbing similarities between the sleep-walking church today and the German church of the 1930s, Metaxas is sounding the alarm again. In Religionless Christianity: God's Answer to Evil, Eric warns that the hour is extremely late for God's people to confront the tidal wave of evil engulfing America.
