Former presidential candidate and conservative-values advocate Gary Bauer said President Barack Obama’s legacy should be the fruit of his pro-abortion policies: more killed by abortion than the number of 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.”
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.
