Skip to comments.Laura Bush Supports Gay Marriage, Abortion
Posted on 05/12/2010 6:47:05 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Former first lady Laura Bush has broken with her husband on the premier social issues of his administration and said she backs gay marriage and abortion.
After more than eight years of silence on the controversial issues, Mrs. Bush said in an interview with CNN's Larry KingTuesday, that gay marriage and abortion were points of contention with her husband, former President George W. Bush.
Mrs. Bush in recent weeks has been promoting her memoir "Spoken from the Heart," in which she writes about her life both before and after becoming first lady.
In response to a question about gay marriage, she said, "There are a lot of people who have trouble coming to terms with that because they see marriage as traditionally between a man and a woman. But I also know that, you know, when couples are committed to each other and love each other, that they ought to have, I think, the same sort of rights that everyone has."
Mrs. Bush said she and the ex-president "disagree" on legalizing same-sex marriage.

>>Its time for the media to divide the GOP again<<
The GOP is doing a fine job all on it’s own.
Compassionate conservatism = liberalism.
Watch the video yourself : youtube : Laura Bush For Gay Marriage & Pro-Choice!
Fair enough. Still, she didn’t run for office, her husband did.
I think we all assumed she was pro-life etc. though.
As I have found through the years, many people who think this way have a family member that is a homo.
Damn it. < scratches Laura Bush’s book off my list for next time I go to B&N or Borders >
>> You people disgust me more and more every day <<
Making friends and influencing people, eh?
>> In fact she was only relevent for 24 freaking days! ,<
That’s kinda like walking in on your wife as your best friend climbs on top of her, but before they have sex, and saying, “Oh, it was only relevant for a minute.” The issue is trust.
“To work, the system requires at least one political party
to take the Constitution and limited government seriously.”
I agree that Palin’s pro life position is laudable. But for me, Pro-life is a PREREQUISITE for my vote, NOT a panacea.
“if a guy is looking for a life partner, as in a wife, head to your local Baptist church and date one of the ladies in the choir, seldom can you go wrong that way. “
You just eliminated 90+ percent of the flakes by doing just that!
(and p.s. to Tsomer. . .that would be 'Mrs'. cricket/lol)
IIRC, she and George had the girls *after* dealing with infertility and undergoing some sort of treatment to get pg (not sure if it was IVF or what)—having gone through infertility and learning INTIMATELY exactly what is involved in getting pregnant (one million things have to be in place or it doesn’t happen) and how precious life in the womb is—it is stunning to hear something like this from the mother of TWINS. I’m so disappointed. :*(
Because the majority of women are pro-abortion. That is the ONLY reason baby murdering is still legal.
I haven’t lost ALL respect—she was still a thousand times better than that high-belt-wearing mama to 2 ‘mistakes’ we have in the White House as FLOTUS now! That said, I’ll never look at Laura Bush in the same way ever again. Probably never listen to her interviews or read her books or articles either. < sighs >
How sad, if true.
VERY sad and I expect true.
I think DC is infested with an excessive amount of such alternative life style people in the staffer ranks.
She is either telegraphing her ENTIRE family’s point of view or she was only Republican by marriage.
she supported her husband and was rewarded with the staff position of first lady.
We do not elect supreme court nominees or the presidential cabinet. If she had come out with this social poop during the primary then GWBush would not be president x43.
Men are more likely to be pro-abortion than women.
The picture on her book cover is kind of creepy or is that just a bad picture?
I always suspected she was a liberal.
Your right. I just looked it up.
Actually, you’re only TECHNICALLY right as the numbers are about the same (they are within the margin of error) but the point is the support is about the same for both men and women so I was wrong.
I’ll modify my position.
Abortion will not be illegal until the majority of women OPPOSE it.
Like they say, you can't choose your own family, especially with your wife.
Seriously, I was the liberal and she the conservative when we met; now it's the opposite.
Finally, recall when W's statement during his first term, "...reasonable people can disagree...but..." (on abortion in general) before condemning late term abortion?

Not a shock. All of the Bush females are liberals it seems. I think even GW was more of a social liberal than he let on, he just played the base.
The only one who does "soap opera" here, is your little gang of rule breakers. I'm not playing your game any more.
The gig is up, kiddo. The gang has been busted.
The GOP uses conservatives, much like the DNC uses minorities.
None of that changes the fact that her husband was the most solidly pro-life President we have ever has, and has been honored for that by pro-life groups.
btw, her book is AWESOME, and should be read to get a real picture of who these dear people really are.
George W. Bush is deeply committed to the pro-life cause and has chosen to continue that in his post-presidency.
You're getting some bad information somewhere.
it is not just the politicians, it is the STAFFERS who run the politicians. Specter was a RINO and had a full on staff of homosexuals and liberals.
Mark Foley...nuff said.
Charlie Crist ..... nuff said x2.
It is NOT enough to eliminate the politicial by election. The staffers they hire must be a front and center issue.
How many “fancy boys or girls” does Laura bush have on staff?
McCain is has had (has?) a few in his campaigns.
Bush always clear on abortion issue including 'late term/partial birth abortions':
I will lead our nation toward a culture that values life -- the life of the elderly and the sick, the life of the young, and the life of the unborn. I know good people disagree on this issue, but surely we can agree on ways to value life by promoting adoption and parental notification, and when Congress sends me a bill against partial-birth abortion, I will sign it into law. Source: Speech to Republican National Convention Aug 3, 2000
I know we need to ban partial-birth abortions. . . I believe banning partial-birth abortion would be a positive step toward reducing the number of abortions in America. This is an issue thats going to require a new attitude. Weve been battling over abortion for a long period of time. Surely this nation can come together to promote the value of life.Source: Presidential debate, Boston MA Oct 3, 2000
Glad you and Laura (wife)are close to same page. . .makes for an easier 'read' for sure./;^)/
Of course she does, she is not a Christian , she just goes to church
Showing her true colors now.........what’s she got to lose eh?
still looks creepy. like a wax figure with wrinkles over exagerated.
If our kid's school teacher or our preacher was promoting the benefits of abortion and gay marriage we'd have a cow.
Laura purposefully deceived us on her leftist espousals for the benefit of herself and her husband while they were in the White House as evinced by her not waiting a New York minute to lay it on us trusting suckers as soon as she could write and publish for profit. This little well-played trick of hers mirrors the subterfuges of liberals everywhere, doesn't it........so it doesn't surprise me.
She's entitled to her positions and little heresies, of course, but I don't want to see any further photos of her reading Peter Pandora or various fairy tales to adoring little kiddies at her feet ever again.
My inclination is to like Laura, but sadly she has lost her Conservative footing. Of course that somewhat ignores the 600 pound gorilla in the room, that she probably didn’t have Conservative footing to begin with.
There is no relationship between her view of abortion and Sarah Palin's........only her husband's.
And her husband's view is as pro-life as Sarah's. Thankfully, he is being recognized for that, and is continuing to speak out for the sanctity of life, long past any so-called 'pandering' to the 'religious right' (never a true statement, ever).
In addition, Laura, in this same book and in interviews, has clearly stated that whatever was wrong with her babies, she would have them and love them. Just like Sarah, Todd, and Trig. Your 'suspicions' are completely wrong, mk.
btw, my husband married a young woman he found in a Baptist church choir. ;)
When you let me know what "conservative footing" Nancy Reagan had, get back to me.....
i’m willing to take that trade. if we can save all the babies for letting sinful people who chooses to live in sin.
let them live in sin as it does not affect us. i’m not in favor of welfare... so i’m not going to go into the business of moral welfare and attempt to save the gays from sin.
Not to be argumentative, but I’m still up in the air on whether George was more sane than Laura. IMO, these are two people who were given a great opportunity, and thinking they wanted to travel to NewHaven, they arrived at the train station just in time to jump on board the express to HoBroken, by mistake.
there in lies the problem and I suspect why obama would put this nominee in for the court.
Homosexuals get to know people they go to church not because they’re religious not because they’re interested but because they befriend people and then once they have gained trust they then tell them the homosexual lies about wanting to be left alone, to be just happy and love who they want etc.
Even on here a few posters have either said they know some homosexuals and they’re nice so they have no problem and pone elderly woman said she met a homosexuals guy at her church who was new and he was nice so now she has no problem with them.
If he gets her on the supreme court she will try and influence other judges into her agenda and play the victim like they always do.
They have tried to infiltrate the boy scouts, community groups, churches and even on here and it is sickening people fall for it.
I’ve seen on the homosexual websites telling others to get out there and get to know people and then bring them around to their agenda.
For those who say well this is not a problem I don’t care then I suggest they go tot heir parades, see how they roam public bathrooms, dog parks, walking trails, in the schools, getting hired etc
I am sick to death of hearing about homosexuals wanting rights and all it is , is based on their sexual turn on which is unnatural too
Please ping me to where I defended Nancy Reagan’s actions.
She’s a frail older woman, has been for years, and I’m not going to address her frailties.
Laura is an adult. She’s in full control of her faculties, and she is on shaky ground.
This is one more occasion when someone can’t deal with the truth when it relates to one of their favorite people.
