Former President George W. Bush and his daughter clearly don’t see eye to eye on abortion.
Barbara Pierce Bush recently made herself known as an advocate for the abortion giant Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion causes – in stark contrast to her father’s pro-life record.
The Texas Tribune reports Barbara is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at a Texas fundraiser for the abortion chain this week.
The lunch event benefits Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, with sponsorships of up to $20,000. This is the same affiliate whose abortion practitioner Amna Dermish was caught by the Center for Medical Progress explaining how she was striving to obtain “intact” aborted babies’ brains in later-term abortions.
Here’s more from the report:
Bush’s mother, former First Lady Laura Bush, has expressed support for the legality of abortion on a handful of occasions. The younger Bush, the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps, called Planned Parenthood an “exceptional organization” in a June New York Times interview, and attended a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in Paris in October.
The lead donor of the luncheon is Sid R. Bass, the prominent Fort Worth billionaire.

Bush’s health organization is, according to its website, a nonprofit that “mobilizes a global community of young leaders to build the movement for health equity.” It partners with organizations overseas to place fellows in year-long tenures promoting world health. Several Planned Parenthood branches are among those organizations.
Former President George W. Bush left a strong pro-life legacy during his presidency, signing every pro-life bill that reached his desk. During his administration, Bush saw abortions decline to new lows, and he made history in 2003 by signing the first measure to ever ban a form of abortion: brutal, late-term partial birth abortions.
He also demonstrated his pro-life commitment on his first day in office when he re-instituted the Mexico City Policy, which stops taxpayer funding of groups that promote or perform abortions in other nations. Later he extended that policy further to prevent pro-abortion funding within all State Department programs.
Pro-abortion President Barack Obama reversed the policy during his first week in office, but President Donald Trump reinstated it in January.
President Bush also supported the Born Alive Infants Protection Act to protect babies who survive abortions. He also signed into law the Unborn Victims of Violence Act to offer protection and justice to pregnant women like Laci Peterson and their unborn children who are killed or injured in violent attacks.
