The Times reported on presidential candidate Pat Robertson relative to the recently disclosed Swaggart sex scandal (Part I, Feb. 23). The candidate said the sex scandal discovery was "planned," that "nothing happens to people by accident" and that "somebody else planned all these things, I am afraid." Preacher Robertson knows that nothing happens by chance, all is according to a higher order. Could it be that God planned all this and the timing of these revelations in accord with his higher purposes?

Re "O.C. acts to halt Planned Parenthood pact," March 11 I am ashamed of the Orange County Board of Supervisors' decision to suspend a contract with Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino counties for health education programs. The supervisors cited personal religious and moral objections to abortion. Abortions make up a very small percentage of Planned Parenthood's services. Its mission is to provide accurate reproductive-related education and contraception. It gives patients information about every medically appropriate option for a given situation.

The leader of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California strongly denied allegations contained in a whistle-blower lawsuit unsealed last week that the group overcharged the state and federal government by at least $180 million for birth-control pills. In a statement released Tuesday, Kathy Kneer, the group's president and chief executive, called the allegations contained in the federal lawsuit "completely false." P. Victor Gonzalez alleges that he was fired in March 2004 as vice president of finance and administration of the Los Angeles affiliate after raising concerns about the "illegal accounting, billing and donations practices of Planned Parenthood."
