Respect for Marriage Coalition to Remove Laura Bush From Marriage Equality Ads

Written by scott on February 22nd, 2013

After Laura Bush complained about being portrayed as a republican marriage equality supporter, the group responsible for the ads, the Respect for Marriage Coalition, has said they will remove her form its ads and use other voices instead, LGBTQ Nation reports.

A pro-marriage equality group says it’s “sorry” former First Lady Laura Bush does not want to be included its national advertising campaign featuring prominent people speaking about same-sex marriage, and said its campaign will “now move to new and different voices.” The Respect for Marriage Coalition said Thursday that it appreciates Bush’s previous comments, telling CNN in 2010 that “when couples are committed to each other and love each other then they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has.”

Good riddance. See the original ad here.
