In Texas, Planned Parenthood is getting what would seem like a much needed boost.

The Perot Foundation, founded by billionaire and former presidential candidate Ross Perot, is donating $1 million dollars to the women's healthcare provider.

A number of Planned Parenthood clinics have been forced to close in Texas following the passage of tighter restriction on abortions, which planned parenthood provides at some of its clinics.

A spokeswoman for the Perot Foundation released a statement saying it's important to inform the public about "the mission of this great organization and the need to support it at this critical time."

Finally, a lost or found Independent Republican, who remembers where he came from. Remembered what the Goldwaters and Reagans, and early Bushes worked to found -- independence and health for all women, rich and poor. I hope this is only the beginning of many good days for Planned Parenthood whether it is this organization or another that believes in women's equality and health. Check history.
