Senator Rubbers

With all the controversy about Planned Parenthood heading into the election, it’s worth recalling that Prescott Bush, Bush 41’s father and Bush 43’s grandfather, chaired Planned Parenthood’s first national fundraising drive in 1947.

When he became a Republican senator from Connecticut, his nickname was Senator Rubbers.  It wasn’t because of his footwear.

Like Mitt, Bush 41 was pro-choice before he ran for president.  His wife Barbara was and is pro-choice, as is Laura Bush.
