*Former first lady Laura Bush revealed in an interview this week that she supports the legalization of same-sex marriage and abortion.

In an interview with CNN’s Larry King on Tuesday, Bush said she differed with her husband, former President George W. Bush, who is well-known for his opposition to gay marriage and abortion. While the two “disagree,” she said both understand where the other person is coming from.

“There are a lot of people who have trouble coming to terms with that because they see marriage as traditionally between a man and a woman,” Bush said in the interview. “But I also know that, you know, when couples are committed to each other and love each other, that they ought to have, I think, the same sort of rights that everyone has.”

The former first lady stated she could accept gay marriage and she believes the legalization of same-sex marriage will eventually occur in the United States.
