Perry Criticizes Administration’s Stance On Abortion, Stem Cells

June 15, 2011 by  

The Governor of Texas was critical of Obama's abortion stance.Texas Governor Rick Perry, a Republican, recently criticized the Barack Obama Administration for its stance on abortion and stem cell research.

In Los Angeles on June 12, Perry addressed a mostly Hispanic crowd of about 5,000 and railed against the President’s stance on reproductive decisions, according to The Associated Press.

The Governor said that the Obama Administration’s handling of stem cell research was “turning the remains of unborn children into nothing more than raw material.”

Obama has slightly bypassed a 1996 law that prevents the government from spending money on work that damages embryos by allowing the harvesting of stem cells to be done with private money and then using money from taxpayers to fund work on the cells, reports the news source.

Reuters reports that Perry also said that since Roe v. Wade, “50 million children have lost their chance at life — a tragic legacy of judicial activism and a stark reminder that our culture and our country are still in peril.”

The AP reports that Perry had earlier dismissed talk about his potential run for the White House but has also said that he was going to “think about it.”
