Bush to speak at pregnancy support group event

INDIANAPOLIS — Former President George W. Bush is to visit Indianapolis this spring for a fundraiser benefiting a group that assists women with unplanned pregnancies.

Bush will be the featured speaker for the Life Centers Celebration of Life event April 15 at Conseco Fieldhouse. The organization says gospel singer Sandi Patty is also scheduled to perform.

Life Centers is an Indianapolis-based group that provides free services such as pregnancy tests, counseling and post-abortion and maternity support at eight sites in central Indiana.

Life Centers president Brian Boone says Bush was asked to speak because of his anti-abortion stances, which include signing the federal Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act into law.
