Dr. James Dobson said Thursday that he would not “yield to (Obama’s) wicked regulations” regarding the Obamacare abortion pill mandate.
““I believe in the rule of law, and it has been my practice since I was in college to respect and honor those in authority over us. It is my desire to do so now,” he said, according to video footage from WND.com. “However, this assault on the sanctity of human life takes me where I cannot go. I will not pay the surcharge for abortion services.”
“To pay one cent for the killing of babies is egregious to me, and I will do all I can to correct a government that lies to me about its intentions and then tries to coerce my acquiescence with extortion,” Dobson said. “It would be a violation of my most deeply held convictions to disobey what I consider to be the principles in Scripture. The Creator will not hold us guiltless if we turn a deaf ear to the cries of His innocent babies.”
Last month, Dobson was granted a temporary injunction against the mandate while his case is in court.
More than 100 religious organizations have challenged the mandate. Next month, the Supreme Court is expect to rule in the Hobby Lobby case against the mandate.
