An ironic twist to Trump's EPA pick
Donald Trump's choice to lead the Environmental Protection Agency has created hysteria and panic among liberals, but an expert says Scott Pruitt could actually make the agency run more efficiently.
Respected Christian leader and author James Dobson makes it clear his pro-family ministry puts the issue of life first and foremost – even if it means shutting down.
"We are suing [HHS Secretary] Kathleen Sebelius for forcing or trying to force all of us to give abortifacient medications to our employees," he summarized on American Family Radio, "and I just absolutely refuse to do it. We'll close down before I'll do it."
Several other employers are challenging the mandate, including the for-profit Hobby Lobby.
"Ours is a Christian non-profit," he explained. "[The government has] exempted churches from having to do this, but they've concluded that other Christian non-profits are not 'Christian enough.'"
In a letter last year to his supporters, Dobson vowed he would not comply with the mandate, saying "the killing of babies is something we absolutely cannot do."
