"When we filed our case in January 2014, our ministry, like every other pro-life and religious organization in the country, faced a life or death decision," Dobson said. "Christian organizations like ours had one of two choices—either we violate our consciences, or we violate the law. The penalty for failing to comply with the ACA regulations was $36,500 per year for every covered employee and family member—clearly unsustainable for any non-profit ministry."
President Obama's Affordable Care Act required all organizations to pay for abortion drugs like the so-called 'Morning After Pill' or 'Plan B.'
"These pills are erroneously called contraceptives, when in truth they allow babies to be conceived but prevent them from attaching to the uterus. When that occurs, a living baby, a child made in the image of God, is killed. That's why these medications are called 'abortifacients,' because they result in the deaths of tiny human beings," Dobson explained.
When the legal battle first began, Dobson had issued his own ultimatum to President Obama saying, "To pay one cent for the killing of babies is egregious to me, and I will do all I can to correct a government that lies to me about its intentions and then tries to coerce my acquiescence with extortion. It would be a violation of my most deeply held convictions to disobey what I consider to be the principles in Scripture. The Creator will not hold us guiltless if we turn a deaf ear to the cries of His innocent babies. So come and get me if you must, Mr. President. I will not bow before your wicked regulation."
