Letter: Gov. Rick Scott prefers guns to helping poor women get health care

Protesters converged in 2012 on the opening of a Wellington abortion clinic.

Gov. Rick Scott has outdone himself. He has deprived Planned Parenthood of $500,000 in funds to help the poor in Palm Beach County; 95 percent of its services are birth control, treatment of sexually transmitted diseases and women’s health — not abortions.

This while he is giving $3.1 million in state funds for a gun range in Palm Beach Gardens. Private ranges are not enough.

What a disgusting misuse of public funds. We, the brilliant people of Florida, voted for this guy.
