On a subsequent hospital visit she calmly motioned to the jar and told him, "Here's the foetus."

The astonishing episode left a huge impact on the young Bush and hardened his pro-life stance, causing him to lean further to the right on issue of abortion and stem cell therapy.

"There's no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life. There was a human life, a little brother or sister," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

He recalled his mother showed him the foetus while he was driving her to hospital for an appointment following the miscarriage.

Bush said that the episode was so sensitive he had to ask the permission of his mother to put it into his memoir, and she approved.
