Dr. James Dobson has spoken out to send a clear message that he would not “yield to (Obama’s) wicked regulations” regarding the Obamacare abortion pill mandate.

The founder of Focus on the Family and Family Talk Radio said the president would have to “come and get (him).” He was speaking in Washington, D.C. at the annual National Day of Prayer event.

“I believe in the rule of law, and it has been my practice since I was in college to respect and honor those in authority over us. It is my desire to do so now,” he said. “However, this assault on the sanctity of human life takes me where I cannot go. I will not pay the surcharge for abortion services.”

“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,” Dobson said. “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.”

Dobson’s remarks were met with a standing ovation and cheers from those in the audience.

Last month, Dobson and his organizations were granted a temporary injunction against the mandate while his case is in court.

“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,” said ADF Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot in a statement following the order. “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.”

More than 100 religious organizations have challenged the mandate. Next month, the Supreme Court is expect to rule in the Hobby Lobby case against the mandate.
