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.
