** Dr. Dobson Explains Remarks at Nat’l Day of Prayer Condemning Obama as the ‘Abortion President’ **
California Democratic Rep. Janice Hahn walked out of the National Day of Prayer event on Capitol Hill Thursday after hearing Dr. James Dobson refer to President Barack Obama as “the abortion president.”
Speaking to Fox News host Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File” Thursday night Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family and “Family Talk,” a Christian radio ministry, explained the significance of his comments and context in which the statement was made.
“President Obama has not only done everything he could to promote abortion, and he let us know that before he was elected, and the people elected him anyway,” said Dobson, who was seated next to his wife, Shirley, who has been the chairwoman of the event since 1991.
** Dobson added that, in his opinion, Obama’s policies show that “he is determined that people of faith and people of conscience are going to have to go along with it and be part of it (abortion).” **
In his speech, Dobson commented: “Before [Obama] was elected, he made it very clear that he wanted to be the abortion president. He didn’t make any bones about it, that this is something that he really going to promote and support. And he has done that. And in a sense, he is the abortion president.”
James Dobson really did a great thing in standing up for right here.
Also, the fact, that a former Planned Parenthood director was invited to a Prayer Breakfast with the President and the fact that President Obama has said “God Bless Planned Parenthood” I believe makes Dr. Dobson’s remarks totally proper.
