Court blocks enforcement of abortion pill mandate against ministry of Dr. James Dobson

ADF official comment
Published On: 10/18/2017

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot regarding a federal court’s order blocking enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against Dr. James Dobson and his “Family Talk” radio show and ministry in Dobson v. Sebelius:


“In America, we don’t try to separate what people do from what they believe. Faith-based organizations should be free to operate according to the faith they teach and live out every day. If the government can fine Christian ministries out of existence because they want to uphold their faith, there is no limit to what other freedoms it can take away. The court was right to block enforcement of this unconstitutional mandate against Family Talk.”


  • Pronunciation guide: Theriot (TAIR’-ee-oh)


Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
