COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.The James Dobson Family Institute (JDFI) issues the following statement:

“The Dobson Policy Center commends Sen. Joni Ernst and the 31 United States Senate co-sponsors for reintroducing legislation today, seeking to prevent taxpayer dollars from funding Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. As we solemnly recognize Sanctity of Human Life week, we encourage all protections from our government on both the federal and state levels for every unborn child. Our Constitution, built upon the immutable truth of our divine Creator, requires the government to act morally and righteously to preserve and protect human life at all stages. This legislation is a necessary step, and we encourage Congress to pass it swiftly.”
