Laura Bush is Pro-Choice

Guest Author - Suzanne Gregory

While I was never a George W. Bush supporter, or fan, there was always something about his wife, First Lady Laura Bush that always drew me to her. She had a grace about her, a light. I felt and still do feel the same about their daughter Jenna, and politics aside, always felt the First President Bush and First Lady Senior Bush were warm, and caring compassionate individuals.

While I have not yet bought or read First Lady Laura Bush’s book, it is one of the books on the top of my list to read. What I already do have knowledge of, is that the she is a strong activist of children, education, reading, & women.

Surprisingly to me, and probably many, she is also Pro-Choice. Well, sort of, but something is better than nothing is. In 2000, she expressed that she did not feel Roe V. Wade should be overturned. At the time, she expressed limiting the number of abortions necessary, through education of abstinence in schools and churches.

I agree with limiting the number of abortions necessary, I do not think anyone would argue with that. However, many people including myself know that abstinence is not processed in the brains of teens, or most adults.

I am more for educating safe sex, and easy and affordable access to protection. It is not that I think teens should have sex. I am just not naive enough to think abstinence is an effective approach.

Former First Lady Laura Bush is also a major activist of women, and proven supporter of the women’s health and wellness initiative.

In 2003, she became involved with The Heart Truth Awareness Campaign. The campaign raises awareness about heart disease in women. Laura Bush is the honorary ambassador of the program.

In 2005, along with Former First Lady Nancy Reagan, they dedicated the first Red Dress Collection to the John F. Kennedy Center for performing arts. The exhibit displays red suits once worn by Former First Ladies, including to date, Laura Bush, Betty Ford, Rosalyn Carter, Lady Bird Johnson, and Hillary Clinton.

Laura Bush is also a major supporter of the fight against breast cancer and does a lot of work with the Susan G. Komen for the cure crusade. Laura Bush’s own mother was diagnosed with the dreadful disease at the age of 78, but thankfully, at this time remains cancer free.

In 2006, she was asked a question about the Federal Marriage Amendment. Her response was that same sex marriage should not be part of politics, or used as a campaign tool.

It was May 11, 2010, that Laura Bush appeared in an interview on Larry King Live, that she would suggest her support of same sex marriage, and that she remains supportive that Roe V. Wade remains legal.

How much different the world could be, had she been President of the United States! No wonder she has always had a high public approval rating, even when her husband did not.

I look forward to reading her book, and following her future endeavors to support women.

If you would like more information on her book, or the causes she is a part of, I have included links below.
