Laura Bush wants out of pro-gay marriage ads

ASSOCIATED PRESS

DALLAS -- Former first lady Laura Bush wants to be removed from a pro-gay marriage group's national advertising campaign featuring prominent people speaking on the topic.

The Respect for Marriage Coalition has launched print, television and online ads that also include clips of President Barack Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of Defense Colin Powell talking about same-sex marriage.

Bush spokeswoman Anne MacDonald says Bush "did not approve of her inclusion in this advertisement nor is she associated in any way with the group that made the ad."

The campaign features a clip of Bush saying on CNN, "When couples are committed to each other and love each other then they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has."

The coalition didn't immediately comment Thursday.
