I keep reading stuff like this about her book, I think I will pass on buying this one and reading it.

I’m beyond surprise anymore. I think I will just continue to ride the spiral out.

I agree. I have never understood how any woman who has had children could be in favor of abortion. The so called “homosexual marriage” is just bogus - “I just want to be enlightened” bologna.

Do you think that they forced her to say those things?

Wasn't Nancy Reagan for abortion? I don't know about her view on gay rights.

Doesn't really matter, we voted for Ronald and W

Boy I wish the media would report on the things that Obama
and his henchmen support that to me would be news. If they are pulling from her book then they should pull some things from Obamas book.

I hate to say this, but it makes me doubt whether Bush was really pro-life. (Don’t forget, he wanted bra-burning leftist Harriet Miers on the USSC.)

Seriously, it’s such a deep, moral issue. Why do all these RINOs (GW Bush, GHW Bush, McCain, Dole) have pro-abortion wives? (Ms. Dole claimed to be a prolifer, but she now co-chairs with Christine Todd Whitman a PAC to purge pro-lifers out of the Republican Party, the insanely revealingly titled, “It’s MY Party [so just give us your money and votes get the hell out? -D] PAC”.) OK, an exception I could see — couples don’t always agree on even the most personal, moral issues — but they’re unanimously pro-abortion!

Barbara Bush was pro-abortion, too. Very unfortunate, because I like both of those ladies. But they seem to have blind spots on some of these basic moral issues.

I think that Harriet Miers was a feminist and was quietly pro-abortion, in spite of all the efforts to paint her as an “Evangelical.” And it was Laura more than anyone who backed that supremely lousy choice for the Supreme Court.

I’m very disappointed in the former first lady. I am heartened by President Bush’s stance.

I never expected Laura Bush to turn into Megan McCain. I won’t be buying her book either.

Expect Mrs. Bush to be warmly embraced by the women at the View, Rachel Maddow and Elena Kagen.

Thank God we still have Sarah to look up to.

No more RINOS! Gays and abortionists have all the legal provisions you could ask for.

They wish to usurp religion.

Why did she feel the need to say anything at all? I’ve always admired Laura Bush and felt she carried herself with such class and dignity. But then she feels it necessary to essentially flip off people that believe in only the traditional marriage and who hold life as sacred. It’s disgusting really and shows, imo, just how mentally unbalanced people have become.

I'm not that surprised. George W Bush on several occasions hinted that he probably would not have gotten Laura's vote if he wasn't married to her.

I don't think George is all that conservative either.

You know. . .I don't always have to agree with people in order to appreciate 'who' they are. Though, for sure; the more in common, the better. . .

I love Laura Bush; but Laura never ran for Office and I never voted for 'her'; so her opinions, I can take and/or reject. It does not change my opinion of her as First Lady; where her private - and 'very private' opinings did not impact our larger 'body politic'.

I did however, vote for her husband - both times - and his Father for that matter; and while there is a 'for better' and 'for worse', the better of GW, saved our Country from a worse fate on the world stage - such as the fate - so damning - now being cast by our current President.

I do not agree with Laura's opinion here; and true to her 'grace' a First Lady - again, unlike current Fist Lady - we were NEVER forced to suffer them.

Mrs Bush is allowed to have her own political opinions and write about them. She isn’t running for office.

All those deviant proabortionists should be aborted.
Same sex screwing is no marriage.

One thing I can’t get, they are aborting kids on the way, and then couples that can’t have a kids have to go to Russia and buy products of alcoholics and other no goods.

Howbout matching those two parties, save money and pedigree.

Gay marriage she said-I think, the same SORT of rights that everyone has...

Laura Bush said abortion should “remain legal, because I think it’s important for
people, for medical reasons and other reasons.”

The holier than thou, know it alls, have made it so difficult to adopt in this country, that no one wants to, even if babies are available. I wonder, if at times, it wasn’t done that way to push the abortion agenda.

Agreed.

I am not surprised at all and not shocked. Most women I know while disapproving of abortion wouldn’t interfere with another womans decision. And most people I know don’t get het up about gay marriage figuring that God will sort it all up later.

She has a right to her opinion and I still admire her enormously. She was a Lady, a good wife and a wonderful first lady who never made us ashamed of her.

She was a supporter of George Stanley McGovern in 1972. Old habits die hard.

Nancy Reagan was a flake from the get go but most knew that and accepted it because of President Reagan's deep love for her. But with Nancy Reagan, truly, you knew what you were getting.
Laura Bush always carried herself with such grace and extended such kindness toward others, and kept silent (as it should be) about such things. Now we're going to have to put up with her running around the country extolling the virtues of depravity and infanticide. And she'll carry weight no doubt...think of the young women who have admired her and now...well Laura Bush thinks it's ok to murder my baby...Laura Bush thinks sodomy is fine.

I just want to vomit
