In an interview on “Larry King Live,” Laura Bush said she disagrees with her husband on gay marriage and abortion, two issues that continually popped up during George W. Bush’s eight years in office.
On gay marriage, she told CNN show host Larry King: “When couples are committed to each other and love each other, then they ought to have, I think, the same sort of rights that everyone has.”
“I think we could” accept gay marriage, she continued. “I also think it’s a generational thing…. That will come.”
“I understand totally what George thinks and what other people think about marriage being between a man and a woman,” she said. “I guess that would be an area that we disagree” on.
Laura Bush also recalled a flurry of questions shortly after her husband took office about overturning Roe vs. Wade.
“I think it’s important that it remain legal,” she said about abortion. “Because I think it’s important for people — for medical reasons and for other reasons.”
