Texas' Perry Assails Obama on Abortion at LA Stop

Sunday, 12 June 2011 06:29 PM EDT

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has been mentioned as a potential Republican presidential candidate, is accusing the Obama administration of transforming abortion into a U.S. export and breaking faith with the nation's founding principles by supporting taxpayer-funded embryonic stem cell research.

Perry, a prominent conservative long at odds with President Barack Obama's stand on reproductive rights and stem cell research, spoke Sunday to a mostly Hispanic crowd of about 5,000 at a Los Angeles anti-abortion rally.

Perry said the direction of stem cell research under the Obama administration was "turning the remains of unborn children into nothing more than raw material."

The governor never mentioned the presidential election, but talk about his possible candidacy has increased since two of his former political advisers recently fled Newt Gingrich's troubled campaign.
