Former President George W. Bush has been a strong advocate for the pro-life movement, but unfortunately, his daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush, has apparently diverged from her father’s beliefs.
In fact, the Bush daughter was set to give the keynote address at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in Texas on March 1, according to The Daily Caller. Proceeds from the annual luncheon in Fort Worth were slated to fund abortions and other services at Planned Parenthood clinics throughout Texas.
In a statement about the event, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas said the organization was “thrilled” to have Bush speak to the pro-choice attendees.
The organization touted the former first daughter’s role as the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps, an international non-profit that promotes young leaders in the health care field who are dedicated to health equity and has partnered with the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation in Africa.
This wasn’t the first time Bush has shown support for the abortion giant and its CEO Cecile Richards. In June 2018, she and Richards did a joint interview with The New York Times about their respective organizations and personal beliefs about health care.
During the interview, Bush referred to Planned Parenthood as an “exceptional organization.”
Richards told BuzzFeed News that it was “really exciting” to have Bush speak at the Texas fundraiser, which was expected to attract some 2,000 people.
“It’s huge, and such a diverse crowd, a lot of elected officials, a lot of Republican sort of first families … I don’t know if she’s ever spoke at any (Planned Parenthood) event before,” Richards explained.
For pro-life Americans who were fans of President Bush’s anti-abortion policies, the news of the Bush daughter supporting Planned Parenthood was disappointing, to say the least.
