FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A Texas official says his office will not to donate to the United Way because some agency donations are used for the “evil” done by Planned Parenthood.

Tarrant County tax assessor Ron Wright says employees outside of work are free to still give to the United Way, which forwards donations to social service organizations.

Wright says he learned some donors ask the United Way to send their contributions specifically to Planned Parenthood, which provides an array of services for women including the abortion services that Wright condemns.

He dismisses arguments that Planned Parenthood offers beneficial health care by saying, “Hitler made the trains run on time.”

The United Way of Tarrant County tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (https://bit.ly/1PjScTX ) that last year about $9,300 was earmarked for Planned Parenthood out of $7.1 million in donations.
