WASHINGTON, Feb 11 (LSN)—Yesterday the US Senate confirmed President Clinton’s nomination of Dr. David Satcher as Surgeon General. Family Research Council President Gary Bauer noted that Satcher was a poor choice because of his support of partial-birth abortion. “Appointing an advocate of infanticide to the bully pulpit on our country’s health would send an absolutely tragic message to our nation and to the world,’’ said Bauer after Satcher's nomination in October.  “The position of the ‘nation’s doctor’ should NOT be filled by an individual who acquiesces in a radical agenda that threatens the life and health of our nation’s mothers and their unborn children.”
