Even old Ross know the Texas GOP is a bunch of regressive old men when it comes to abortion and their defunding of their scapegoat Planned Parenthood. Never mind the fact that Planned Parenthood saves countless lives and gives free healthcare to poor females everywhere. Even Ross,who reminds me of Elmer Fudd,can see how freaking stupid the anti abortion crusaders are. Good job Ross.

Were you under the mistaken impression Perot was ever a republican? He's always been an independent with his views falling squarely in both parties.

He is a populist. The opposite of a libertarian. I never liked him much but I do like this. What gives 50 year old men the right to tell a female what she can or can not do with her own body?

Why, as a male, do you think it's any of your business? Cause you're *very liberal*?

Being that they strive to be equal, it should be women who fight for their own causes.

FWIW... Perot probably gave them the money as a tax write-off that turned into a political gesture.

But they are good liberal voters like gays so I stand up for them. After all we are fighting against the same right wing nimrods.

No, he's an independent. NOT the same as a libertarian or a populist. Some of his views fall squarely in the republican party platform and some of his views fall squarely in the democrat party platform.

Elections, read all about them and get back to us.

I was expecting some sort of response but, that's pretty mindless. Do you think for yourself or is it all about the PARTY?

Seriously.

they don't perform mammograms just a physical exam that any women can do at home and it is best a women examines their own breast because who knows them better then the owner

Local county health departments give pap smear test for free and while you are there you can get a hand full of free condoms

the main purpose of PP is abortions they just use their other mundane medically amateur services as a front to gain tax payer money services you can obtain for free at any county health clinic

You got to love that crazy old coot. He's the only modern politician who is honest, if not guileless.

Ross Perot was a populist. He always spoke about kicking the corrupt polititions out and cleaning up the whole system. He called himself the defender of the common man and the fact he ran a business and was not a politition gave him the edge. That is populism my friend. Yes he is independant too.

well, the very obvious question here is if we are solely talking about "her body". Hence why when life begins is central to the debate

wow you just proved how severely uneducated you are on this topic. a very large number of PPs dont even do abortions, probably the majority dont. In pa only like 10 out of the 30-40 we have do.
Please do some research and educate yourself on what actually goes on at these HEALTH CARE CLINICS.

Abortions are a small amount of what PP does. I guess conservatives hate abortion more than they hate food stamps.PP saves thousands of lives and that is fact.

First the conservatives bitch about abortion then they bitch when that same woman gets food stamps to feed that baby. Oh then the bitch about giving teenage girls the pill which would prevent the abortion. I guess you can't win with conservatives.

Conservatives what a joke it just another name for bible thumper. Honestly they are not Christian and they do not act or speak in Christian way. They compare easily to the hate spewed by Nazi's though.

They love to be all self righteous and more holy than thou but they roll in greed and selfishness. The right wing is driven by hypocricy.
