George Bush’s Daughter Barbara to Deliver Keynote Address at Planned Parenthood Fundraiser

The daughter of former President George W. Bush will deliver the keynote address at a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood.

This news may come as a shock to many who know that, as president, Bush was pro-life and opposed abortion. It appears his daughter, Barbara Bush, has different views, however.

According to Newsmax.com, Barbara Bush is the co-founder and CEO of Global Health Corps--an organization that has previously praised Planned Parenthood.

Next Wednesday, Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the country, will hold its annual fundraising luncheon in Fort Worth, Texas, and Bush will be the main speaker.

According to the Washington Examiner, the purpose of Bush’s speech will be to raise support for Planned Parenthood.

The organization has come under fire particularly in recent months after undercover videos surfaced of Planned Parenthood employees allegedly negotiating the sale of fetal body parts. Another more recent undercover video claimed to show that few Planned Parenthood clinics actually offer prenatal care, despite their claims that they provide a number of valuable services for women, besides abortions.

President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress have said they aim to defund Planned Parenthood.
