Did Hewlett Packard Give To Planned Parenthood While Carly Fiorina Was There?

News is coming out that a pro-life women's group has endorsed Carly Fiorina in California. If Fiorina becomes the Republican nominee she will face Senator Boxer in the general election. The problem is that Hewlett Packard gives millions to Planned Parenthood.
"The Hewlett Foundation has announced $125.1 million in new grants to 214 organizations. First and foremost among the beneficiaries is International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF), for whom Hewlett cut the largest check by far, granting $8.3 million to support worldwide abortion.

Of the Menlo Park-based foundation's six program areas, the most money went toward “population” issues, specifically supporting family planning and AIDS prevention worldwide. In all, the foundation's "Population Program" gave $31.8 million to 38 organizations dealing with global population issues. The International Planned Parenthood Federation, based in London, claimed over a quarter of the sum to support its radical agenda..."
It would be of interest to know how much knowledge and or control Fiorina had about how these funds were dispersed while she was the CEO at Hewlett Packard.
