Barbara Bush Flashed Remains of Miscarriage at GW

NyPo has the details:
George W. Bush's pro-life stance solidified when he was a teenager in Texas -- after his mother suffered a devastating miscarriage and showed him the fetus in a jar, the former president said in an extraordinary interview that airs tonight.

"She said to her teenage kid, 'Here's the fetus,' " the shockingly candid Bush told NBC's Matt Lauer, gesturing as if he were holding the jar during the TV chat, a DVD of which The Post exclusively obtained.

"There's no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life," said the former president, who had to drive his distraught mother to the hospital at the time

"I never expected to see the remains of the fetus, which she had saved in a jar to bring to the hospital," Bush writes in his new book, "Decision Points," in an excerpt Lauer read during the interview.

"There was a human life, a little brother or sister," Bush told the "Today" host during the sit-down to promote his tome, which hits stores tomorrow.

  1. Imgaine that. A mother showing her son the horrors of the world in DEFENSE of life? Of course, Bush, being the complete fucking moron he is, agrees?

    If anything, it shows that the world needs to adopt the philosophy of antinatalism. Bringing a child into this world, as it currently is, with all of its problems, is completely immoral.

    And I'm not alone in my thinking. See Twain, Schopenhauer, and about a dozen others.

    "It is best not to have been born at all: but, if born, as quickly as possible to return whence one came." --Sophocles

  2. And what Bush needs to see are some pictures of the depelted uranium babies being born in Iraq. That might get his ass thinking.

  3. Does she still have the fetus? That's REALLY creepy.
