Perot's policies

Regarding the editorial "Don't Do It, Ross," Sept. 30: Now that Ross Perot is back in the race, it is important that your editors become fully aware of his proposed programs for our country. His book "United We Stand," not only outlines a fair and comprehensive deficit-reduction plan but spells out his platform on social and foreign policy issues as well.

The statement, "We still don't know his platform on issues such as abortion," is answered as follows: Perot stresses the need for a standard of personal responsibility in regard to human procreation. He is, however, supportive of a woman's right to choose, encourages adoption as an alternative to abortion, supports federal funding for reproductive counseling and education, and supports additional funding of abortions for the poor.
