Plutocrat and former third party presidential candidate Ross Perot donated $1 million to Planned Parenthood of Texas, to help fill the gap left by the states defunding of the Womens Health Program.
For nearly 100 years Planned Parenthood has helped to educate men and women regarding family planning and general family health, said Margot Perot, speaking for the Perot Foundation of Dallas. Our family has supported this nonprofit for many years because we are impressed with the work they doproviding birth control; scientifically based education; breast health exams; and basic, life-saving healthcare for women who cannot afford services otherwise.
In 2012, Texas passed a law denying funds from the Womans Health Program, a Medicaid program that services many underprivileged women in the state, to clinics that provide abortions. But while the Hyde Amendment already prohibits government money from being used for abortions, federal law also does not allow states to refuse money to clinics that perform the service. When Texas Governor Rick Perry refused to back down on the issue, the federal government yanked its (massive) share of the funding to the WHP, stopping an estimated $40 million to womens health clinics in the state.

Sometimes, I’m tempted to wish those who promote abortion could suffer the same fate they promote those infants via a woodchipper.
And I know many idiots who voted for him.
why didn’t he give that money to cancer research or any number of other serious, legitimate causes?
How did people get so rich and be so stupid.
You want me to guess and then give away the answer in the first sentence?! Won’t play!
Perot a racist? Disproportionate number killed will be African American.
Gee! Think of the number of conservatives who actually voted for this man for president.
If pregnancy is a life threatening disease, why do people not spending more time trying to figure out how to prevent getting pregnant?
Or are they monkeys and can’t stop themselves?
I can’t get my head around this at all. Pregnancy is life threatening. They can’t stop having unprotected intercourse on the days they are ovulating.
Are they really evolved?
Just thinking out loud.
My Mother was correct. Money doesn’t care where it goes. Eff you Perot Family!
Still loony after all these years.
No wonder the Cubanos disrupted her wedding.
The Clintoons owe Ross Perot a debt of gratitude-—twice.

His foundation donated and his wife supports it and he must have okay-ed it. So he is wrong in doing that.
Guess they can use it to pay off their fraud.
