Dr. James Dobson Throws Fit Over Obamacare, Promises to Close Over Contraception Mandate (Audio)
The Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian law firm, recently filed a lawsuit for Dr. James Dobson and his "Family Talk" ministry against Obamacare over its contraception mandate.
The Liberty Counsel recently lost a lawsuit on the very same issue when it sued on behalf of Liberty University against Obamacare.
Dr. Dobson has repeatedly claimed that Obamacare somehow covers abortion-causing drugs, but in reality Obamacare actually requires health insurance companies to provide contraception and emergency contraception for women.
As ThinkProgress.org reported in 2012, emergency contraception (Plan B) works exactly like birth control. Plan B prevents a woman from becoming pregnant before fertilization (with an increased amount on estrogen), which is when pro-life advocates such as Dr. Dobson claim life begins. Plan B does not prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg into the wall of the uterus.
However, in an interview with LifeNews.com, Dr. Dobson and the Alliance Defending Freedom still claimed Obamacare has an "abortion pill mandate." The Alliance Defending Freedom has made the same false "abortion-causing pill" claim on its website.
According to RightWingWatch.org, today on his "Family Talk" radio show, Dr. Dobson, son Ryan Dobson (pictured above) and his lawyer Martin Nussbaum parroted the same false claims and promised to close down the ministry before providing contraception for women (audio below).
"How dare the government do that do us!" yelled Dr. Dobson. "These principles that we believe in are more important to us than our own lives!"
"...It's important to stand up for righteousness in the culture and to save the lives of millions of babies that are going to be killed because of this," claimed Ryan Dobson. "We have to do this."
"...Well, we will close the doors if we have to do this!" added Dr. Dobson. "Rather than be complicit in the killing of babies, we will go away. I mean, it's as simple as that."
