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.”

President Washington wrote: "Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor…"
