Thanks for your serious concern. After Dr. Dobson's many years of dedicated ministry, it is not surprising that you disapprove of our confronting him. If we are wrong, we deserve your criticism. And if the three following points are correct, then we ask you to reconsider this life and death matter.

1. The Gonzales v. Carhart PBA ruling instructs abortionists that they can legally continue to perform partial-birth abortions simply by delivering a late-term baby halfway (to his bellybutton), and then killing him by various methods including by ripping off his legs. (See the ruling itself or our analysis at This is evil.

2. Most pro-life ministries have done many years of fundraising on this PBA ban, leading donors and Christians by the millions to believe the ban had the authority to save the lives of late-term babies even though they knew from the beginning this law did not have the authority to save a single child's life.

3. We are warning the many pro-life leaders who have become moral relativists that it is wrong to defend judges and rulings that violate God's enduring command, Do not murder. This happens commonly when officials affirm the killing of the innocent, as happened when Dr. Dobson defended Samuel Alito's 2000 ruling that kept partial-birth abortion legal in New Jersey. And now he defends this PBA ruling which optimistically suggests that abortionists "may find… less shocking methods to abort the fetus."

Some people who have been dismayed by our confronting of Focus on the Family have been even more shocked, to the point of disbelief, of what this brutally wicked ruling actually says, because they are not being told the truth by ministries they have grown to love and trust. We urge you to read carefully our open letter (earnestly co-signed by respected pro-life organizations like American Life League, Operation Rescue, Colorado Right To Life and Human Life International), and you can read the ruling itself. Then after you have more information, for Dr. Dobson's sake, and for the sake of the Body of Christ, and for the unborn who we are fighting for, please reconsider joining us in exposing moral relativism among Christian leaders, and in condemning any law or ruling that provides authority to intentionally kill an innocent person, thus undermining personhood and God-given right to life, which is the only place of safety for the unborn.

Unequal undercover reports

By Michelle Malkin
May 20, 2007

Here is a tale of two breeds of undercover journalists. One has been celebrated by the national media and journalism organizations, the other has been shunned. One has champions in Congress. The other faces litigation.
Both engaged in sting operations with secret cameras catching their targets on videotape. Both were deceptive about their true identities and life circumstances. Both exposed their targets' aggressive methods and law-subverting recruitment tactics. But you've probably only heard of the efforts of one of these breeds. You'll know why in a moment.
Over the last several years, local and national news outlets have conducted stings on military recruiters. Last week, a Nashville, Tenn., station set up hidden cameras and reported it caught Army recruiters telling an undercover producer posing as a recruit that taking medication for depression would not disqualify a recruit. The Democratic chairman of a House Armed Services subcommittee now urges an Army probe of recruitment and the mentally ill, based on the station's report.
Last fall, ABC News and New York affiliate WABC enlisted students to help them in a similar gotcha game with recruiters. They armed the kids with hidden video cameras for visits to 10 Army recruitment offices in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Recruiters were accused of misleading students to get them to enlist.
The ABC News sting came on the heels of a Colorado student's undercover operation in Denver in 2005. David McSwane, a high school honors student, posed as a dropout and druggie. "I wanted to do something cool, go undercover and do something unusual," he told the Rocky Mountain News. Mr. McSwane deliberately failed a high school equivalency test, caught recruiters on tape driving him to purchase a detox kit, and reported they urged him to obtain a phony diploma. A local CBS station picked up the story -- prompting the Army to close its recruiting stations nationwide for ethics training.
Mr. McSwane earned a "laurel" from the prestigious Columbia Journalism Review "for conduct most becoming" and announced he was headed to journalism school. His reporting garnered attention from the New York Times to Editor & Publisher -- and spawned copycats like those at ABC News.
No such laurels have been awarded to Lila Rose, however -- and none will be, I predict. Miss Rose is an 18-year-old student journalist at the University of California-Los Angeles. Like Mr. McSwane and his breed of undercover reporters, she surreptitiously infiltrated a massive organization that enlists young people. Like Mr. McSwane and his breed of undercover reporters, Miss Rose exposed deceptive practices. Miss Rose posed as a 15-year-old seeking the services and advice of her target. Like Mr. McSwane and his breed of undercover reporters, she caught her targets urging her to lie and evade the law in order to sign her up.
But Miss Rose's target was the Left's beloved Planned Parenthood, not the military. And that has made all the difference in the nonexistent national coverage of her undercover journalism. Miss Rose edits the Advocate, a pro-life campus publication of the student group Live Action. She posed as a minor impregnated by a 23-year-old boyfriend and caught a Planned Parenthood employee advising her to lie about her age to relieve the abortion provider from a legal obligation to report statutory rape to the police.
"If you're 15, we have to report it," the staffer told Miss Rose in a secretly taped video. "If you're not, if you're older than that, then we don't need to."
"OK, but if I just say I'm not 15, then it's different?" Miss Rose queried.
"You could say 16," the worker helpfully suggested. "Just figure out a birthdate that works. And I don't know anything."
Other than coverage from a few pro-life groups and conservative Web sites, Miss Rose's stunning revelations have received virtually no mainstream media attention. And no calls from lawmakers for investigations of Planned Parenthood's predatory tactics and practices --which have been also caught on tape in other states by undercover citizen investigators.
Instead, Miss Rose faces threats of a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood, which sent her a cease-and-desist letter and had the appalling nerve this week to lecture her about the need "to be more respectful of California laws," according to the conservative Cybercast News Service.
Where are the muckraking champions when you need them? Intrepid Lila Rose has learned the hard way: Not all undercover journalists are equal.

For Immediate Release:

Rift Opens in Christian Right
Unprecedented Criticism of Dobson by Major Ministries

An ad hoc coalition of pro-life Christian ministries publishes today, May 23, 2007, a critical Open Letter addressed to Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs as a full-page ad in that city's largest newspaper. The letter documents gross misrepresentation by Dr. Dobson and certain Christian organizations regarding the recent partial-birth abortion ruling.

Signers of the open letter include:
- Brian Rohrbough, president, Colorado Right to Life
- Rev. Tom Euteneuer, president, Human Life International
- Flip Benham, director, Operation Rescue / Operation Save America
- Judie Brown, president, American Life League

Judie Brown runs one of the largest pro-life ministries in America. Operation Rescue is the nation's most-well known pro-life activist organization. Human Life International (, founded by Father Paul Marx, has 90 offices in 75 countries. Colorado Right To Life is the nation's oldest Right To Life organization, and its president Brian Rohrbough is known internationally for fighting against violence as with his interviews on Good Morning America, Oprah, Fox News, and the BBC; and after the Amish school shootings on the free-speech segment at the CBS Evening News.

The open letter criticizes the leadership of the U.S. Christian right for a 15-year effort which achieved a partial-birth abortion ruling that actually encourages abortionists to devise "less shocking methods to abort the ['late-term'] fetus" (p. 30). The ruling, celebrated by leaders of the pro-life industry, provides instructions on how to legally kill a baby by a partial-birth abortion by delivering the child (breech), just not "past the navel." To actually violate this regulation (p. 17) "requires the fetus to be delivered 'until … any part of the fetal trunk past the navel is outside the body of the mother. '"

The Colorado Springs Telegraph Gazette approved this open letter for publication after confirming the accuracy of the Gonzales v. Carhart ruling excerpts. The letter also lists fifteen other pro-life leaders who are in agreement with the signers' negative analysis of the ruling. The signers made repeated efforts to reach Dr. Dobson personally, and he has received an advance copy of this letter, the text of which is attached, and at the , and at

When Denver's Children's Hospital last year conspired to starve disabled
toddler, Dylan Walborn, to death in a 24 day ordeal which the Denver Post
chronicled, why are we surprised that a Colorado districty attorney would
fail to prosecute parents accused of murdering their (reportedly) disabled

After 40 years of ending the lives of pre-born babies in the womb, America
has a set precedent for life being cheap!

Terri Schindler Schiavo was murdered in Florida, because many thought her
to be so disabled as to not be worthy of living. Dylan Walborn's parents
believed he wouldn't want to live and, therefore, starved him to death.

We have slid so far down the slope of death, that we shouldn't even
ask why the Boulder DA failed, for 15 months, to prosecute parents
who apparently believed their baby was worthy of death.

Caplis and Silverman stated the parents called the baby - limp arm.

Mr. Silverman chastised this pro-life advocate, when Terri's autopsy
was released, for proclaiming her right to life.

How can we survive as a nation when we routinely destroy lives deemed
unworthy of living?
