Former first lady Laura Bush is backing the fight against the bullying of gay teenagers.

She said in an interview at the Women's Conference 2010 in California on Tuesday that all bullying - "certainly gay teens, but any children" is terrible.

The former first lady referred to a series of recent suicides by gay teens, according to an ABC News report that Bush spokesman David Scherzer confirmed on Wednesday. She said adults have to be the ones who do something about it.

She also praised the appeal to gay young people by Fort Worth City Council member Joel Burns. She expressed pride in the openly gay councilman's account of being bullied when he was young and assuring gay youth that "it will get better."
