Re "Giuliani's foes see abortion as chink in armor," May 9 I am a Republican and a long-standing supporter of Planned Parenthood. For more than 90 years, Planned Parenthood has helped women and families prevent unintended pregnancy and plan strong, healthy families. While safe abortion care is an important service, it's a small fraction of Planned Parenthood's work; 97% of its nationwide services are focused on prevention, helping clients to plan and space pregnancies and prevent sexually transmitted infections.

Starbucks Corp. is removing 30 U.S. stores from a list of locations it planned to close because sales and profits have improved. The Seattle-based coffee chain had planned to close about 800 U.S. stores and about 160 international cafes in an effort to save $550 million in costs.

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.
