Dr. James Dobson Issues Statement in Reaction to the Senate's Failure to Hold Floor Vote on 'Pain-Capable Act'


“Today, our political leaders decided that rather than acknowledge what any parent so easily understands – that a moving and kicking 20-week-old baby can feel pain and therefore should not be subjected to the mortal assault of a surgeon – is the height of cultural insanity.”

— James Dobson, Ph.D.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Dr. James Dobson issues the following statement in in reaction to the Senate’s failure to gain 60 votes to break a democratic filibuster and hold a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act:

“I am profoundly saddened by today’s news that the Senate has failed to even hold a floor vote on the ‘Pain-Capable Act’ which would have outlawed abortion at 20-weeks, when science confirms an unborn child can feel pain. The cowardice exhibited by some in the U.S. Senate flies in the face of logic, public opinion, and human decency. Indeed, even a majority of Americans who are in favor of abortion support banning the practice after 20-weeks.


“Today, our political leaders decided that rather than acknowledge what any parent so easily understands – that a moving and kicking 20-week-old baby can feel pain and therefore should not be subjected to the mortal assault of a surgeon – is the height of cultural insanity. This is indeed a sad and disgraceful day for America as we join only seven other nations in the world, including China and North Korea, which allow such inhumane treatment of the unborn.


“Rest assured, this is only the beginning of this battle and those who opposed this completely sensible legislation should ready themselves for a fight. I invite you to join with Shirley and me as we first pray, and then advocate loudly on behalf of the unborn. Let’s call, email and write our Senators, demanding an immediate re-vote in favor of this critical piece of legislation.”

Open Letter to President Joe Biden

Dear President Biden, We write to you with grave concern about the radical agenda your administration is imposing on the American people. When you ran in 2020, a major theme of your campaign was to bring America together. Instead, your actions have indisputably divided the country.
