WASHINGTON, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer on Friday called it "sad and infuriating" that in the same week in which President Obama issued an executive order extending freedom to murderers he issued death warrants to innocent unborn children overseas.
Gary Bauer, president of American Values, made the following statement as pro-life leaders were awaiting news that President Obama had signed an executive order overturning the Mexico City policy, which prohibits the use of federal funds to pay for abortions overseas.
Bauer commented: "It is both sad and infuriating that in the same week that President Obama extended new rights to prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and began planning to release men whom we know have murdered Americans, he is preparing to sentence innocent children to death through abortion. The decision to overturn the Mexico City policy means that taxpayer dollars will be given to organizations performing abortions. And all of this will be done at tax-payer expense. This is not the kind of change that keeps America safe or that exports the best of our values."
