On his radio show 'Family Talk,' host Dr. James Dobson recently claimed that President Obama signed a law banning anyone over the age of 70 from getting a stent for treatment of heart blockages.

Dr. Dobson admitted he had not confirmed this bizarre claim, but broadcast it anyway, reports

"I have not had this confirmed, but a physician told me last week that Congress recently passed a law that has been signed by the President that would make it illegal to give people over 70 years of age stents for their heart," said Dr. Dobson. "Which means you're going to let them die. I don't know for sure if that's true, but that's the kind of thing that is coming.  In any competition between the young and the old, guess who is going to lose that?"
