Pro-Abortion America?

Do the American people prefer abortion on demand or "a woman's right to choose," as the abortion industry and their political allies describe it? Over the last year, since Roe v. Wade was thankfully overturned, a narrative has taken root that it is a political liability to be pro-life and in favor of legal restrictions on abortion. That simply isn't true. But if elected officials and candidates are afraid to make the pro-life case, we guarantee they will lose every time. Being pro-life is not something to be ashamed about.

At JDFI we are 100% pro-life. We want all the children to be welcomed into the world, protected by the law and to be part of the American family. Many Americans have a more complicated view on abortion, which is why pro-life lawmakers must be willing and able to debate the issue.

Our friends at Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, the nation's leading pro-life organization, just completed a nationwide poll. The results are encouraging, but they also show more work needs to be done to win hearts and minds. Only 26 % of the country favors a total ban on all abortions with the three exceptions of rape, incest, or life of the mother. But a solid majority of 59% would support a ban after 15 weeks with the three exceptions. Surprisingly, even 53% of voters who describe themselves as "pro-choice" would favor a ban after 15 weeks.

The Biden administration and their allies in Congress are supporting legislation that by any yardstick is radical and unpopular with most voters. The goal is to strike down pro-life laws in every state and replace them with a statutory right to abort at any time and for any reason during all nine months of pregnancy. An overwhelming majority of the American people - 64% - oppose this radical proposal that would significantly increase the number of abortions each year. Are the estimated 60 million abortions that have been performed in America since 1973 not enough for the White House?

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA Pro-Life America, said this about the state of abortion politics in America, "When it comes to protecting life and supporting women, Americans agree far more than the media will report. . . [Americans] reject the Democrats' radical agenda of tax-funded abortion on demand until birth. Life is winning across America and that's worth celebrating."

Pride before the Fall?

Proverbs 16:18 tells us, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall" (NIV). Bud Light and Target learned that lesson last year. Other corporations got the message and scaled back their "Pride" displays last month.

Vote for the Supreme Court?

There are many reasons Christians must vote in record numbers this November. Our country will elect a president, one-third of the Senate, and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Supreme Court justices are not elected. The president makes nominations, and then they must receive a majority vote in the Senate.

The Dr. James Dobson Family Institute Decries Yesterday's Attempted Assassination of Former President Donald Trump and Calls for the American People to Pray and Unite

The attempted assassination of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump, and the murder and injuring of his supporters in Butler, PA, were appalling and tragic. Many have described this historical event as surreal, and it does not reflect the America envisioned by our Founding Fathers or the overwhelming majority of the American people.
