Leading pro-life activist Gary Bauer, the former presidential candidate who is now the head of the group American Values, says President Barack Obama will have a terrifying legacy once he leaves office: more babies aborted than jobs created.
“This ought to be the epitaph of this administration: In the last five years under this president more babies have been aborted than jobs have been created,” Bauer said on Friday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference in Washington, D.C.
“Now that is a good summary of this president,” said Bauer, who is president of the nonprofit American Values. “Few things make Barack Obama more passionate than abortion on demand.”
CNS News spotlighted the comments from Bauer today and provided more analysis on them.
About 1.2 million babies were aborted surgically in the United States in 2008 (or about 100,000 per month), according to the Guttmacher Institute. If that number has stayed generally constant, then over the last five and a half years of the Obama administration, about 6.6 million babies have been aborted.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics seasonally-adjusted employment numbers, there were 142,152,000 million people employed in January 2009, when Obama was inaugurated. In May 2014, the latest month on record, there were 145,814,000 people employed–an increase of 3,662,000 million.
“That’s how radical this guy is on abortion,” Obama said. “And, by the way, he totally ignores the fact that it’s black babies disproportionally that never get to take the first breath of freedom in this country,” said Bauer.
“And it’s black women that are being exploited by abortion-on-demand as Planned Parenthood intentionally locates abortion clinics in inner cities all over America,” he said. “The president of the United States ought to be ashamed of himself for being part of this and what it does for black communities.”
