Dr. James Dobson Issues Statement on Mississippi Bill that Would Prohibit Abortion After 15 Weeks


"In lieu of a change in abortion laws at the national level, legislation such as House Bill 1510 represents a powerful reaffirmation of a state's right to make and pass laws in fitting with the character and values of its own people." 
–James Dobson, Ph.D. 



COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Mar 9, 2018
— Dr. James Dobson issues the following statement in reaction to Mississippi lawmakers passing House Bill 1510 that, if signed into law, would prohibit abortion after 15 weeks :

After the Senate's recent failure to pass the Pain-Capable Act, which would have prohibited abortion after 20-weeks, I am greatly encouraged by, and entirely supportive of the lawmakers of Mississippi who this week courageously passed House Bill 1510, outlawing abortion after 15-weeks. Science and medicine confirm what Psalm 139 says, that unborn babies of any gestational age are fully formed human beings, complete in design and DNA—knitted together in their mother's womb.

In lieu of a change in abortion laws at the national level, legislation such as House Bill 1510 represents a powerful reaffirmation of a state's right to make and pass laws in fitting with the character and values of its own people. I applaud and support all legislation that further limits the number of abortions, whether it prohibits the taking of life at 20 weeks, 15, or two. The pro-life community will not stop until the Supreme Court of the United States overturns the disastrous Roe v. Wade decision and places abortion law back in the domain of the states—not the Federal Government. The successful defense of such laws is critically important to us achieving our ultimate goal of ending the scourge of abortion in our land once and for all.

I encourage everyone with a social media page, a phone or an email to voice your support for Mississippi's courageous leadership in defense of the unborn and for similar efforts currently underway in other states. For those who wish to express their thanks, you may contact Mississippi Governor, Phil Bryant, who is expected to sign the bill into law. He can be reached via email at info@governor.ms.gov.

Stand With Israel

We thank God that the April 13th missile and drone attack on Israel, by the Islamic Republic of Iran, failed. Many of the 300 missiles and drones were destroyed by Israel's Iron Dome defense system or by U.S. and Israeli jets. But the failure of the attack does not erase its significance. For the first time, Iran has launched an attack directly from its own territory on Israel, instead of using its proxies, including Hamas and Hezbollah.

Standing For Religious Liberty

Kudos to a bipartisan group of U.S. senators who have introduced Senate Resolution 569 to reiterate that religious freedom is a core human right and should be a top priority of U.S. foreign policy.

New Study Debunks Trans Narrative

Everything about the transgender ideology is anti-science as well as being anti-God. The Lord created mankind to be men and women. Science confirms that genetically there are two genders—male and female. A man cannot "become" a woman, nor can a woman "become" a man by radical, deforming surgery or administering powerful, dangerous drugs.
