Dr. Robert E. Jackson, Jr. and Carlotta Jackson

Host: Dr. James Dobson

November 04, 2021

While Dr. Robert Jackson, Jr. was a second-year medical resident, he was asked to administer a drug to induce premature labor for a woman who was carrying a special needs baby in order to abort the pregnancy. He refused, but another doctor did so, prompting the woman to deliver a 22-week-old infant. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Jackson recounts that the patient’s little baby, born alive, was wrapped in a cold, wet towel, and abandoned to die in a metal basin. Since that horrific moment, Dr. Jackson has been a passionate and staunch pro-life defender of the child in the womb.
