Barbara Pierce Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, will headline a Planned Parenthood fundraiser next week in Texas, according to a report from the Texas Tribune.

Bush is expected to be the keynote speaker at the Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas’s annual Fort Worth fundraising luncheon.

President Bush pushed for anti-abortion policies during his time in the White House, but his wife Laura Bush has supported legal abortion in the past.
The announcement comes amid the continuing debate over federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides a variety of reproductive health services to women, including abortions.

Barbara Bush is the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps and called Planned Parenthood an “exceptional organization” last year in an interview with the New York Times. Bush also attended an event for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in Paris.
