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."
