Congresswoman Bolts From Prayer Event After James Dobson Calls Obama The ‘Abortion President’
Rep. Janice Hahn walked out of a National Day of Prayer event after James Dobson, founder of the Christian group, Focus on the Family, called President Obama the “abortion president.”
President Obama, before he was elected, made it very clear that he wanted to be the abortion president. He didn’t make any bones about it,” Dobson, whose organization recently won a temporary injunction against the Affordable Care Act’s employer contraception mandate, said on Thursday. “This is something that he really was going to promote and support, and he has done that, and in a sense he is the abortion president.”
In an interview with The Huffington Post on Thursday, Hahn called the speech deeply “inappropriate” and a violation of the event’s symbol as a nonpartisan day of unity.
