Live Action: Planned Parenthood Mammogram Lies Exposed

     

The left has been frantically pushing the spin regarding Planned Parenthood and the recent move to stop providing them with federal funding (from we, the taxpayers). Screeching things like “If you defund Planned Parenthood, women will die! They won’t be able to get mammograms. Why do you hate women and their girl bits?”

As many of us know, Planned Parenthood does not, nor have they ever, provided mammograms. That has not stopped them from outright lying about this in an attempt to scare people into giving them money:

“Most prominently, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards recently appeared on The Joy Behar Show to oppose the Pence Amendment to end Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer subsidies, claiming, “If this bill ever becomes law, millions of women in this country are gonna lose their healthcare access–not to abortion services–to basic family planning, you know, mammograms.”

Oh really, Cecile Richards? Care to explain these videos taken by Live Action?

I won’t hold my breath.

    What do mammograms have to do with basic family planning? She needs a biology class.

    Yep! I suppose being a flat-out shameless liar also makes one rather stupid. Basic anatomy is hard! 😀

    Well, Planned Parenthood might not do mammograms – I don't think the lie was good idea – but their point is still valid. Planned Parenthood does more than just abortions: they provide counseling, birth control, Pap smears and breast exams, Pelvic exams, yearly exams, STI screening, and much more.

    If you're a woman, you understand that it might take a month or so to get an appointment at your regular GYN to get looked at. With PP, for me, the wait was only a couple days.

    Due to a lack of insurance, and a need of Birth Control pills, about 5 years ago, in shame, I broke down and went. I not only need BC pills for their intended purpose – the hormones help regulate my moods greatly. My experience there was terrific. Everyone was caring and kind. They even counseled me on types of birth control, even though I had made up my mind.

    I wouldn't dream of defunding them, even for a moment.

    If you'd like to, I have this to say: "Geraldine Santoro"

    Thank you.

    What I find perplexing is the ambivalence that so called “constitutionalists” have over Planned Parenthood. On one hand, these people get irate when the government tells them what to do, yet when it comes to the personal choice of abortion, these people want the fed to intervene and make verboten. Republicans look even sillier for targeting PP, considering abortions make up 3% of services PP performs.

    Plus, do we not understand that the greater goal Republicans have of outlawing abortion will not prevent abortions? If anything, it would likely lead to more deaths of women who will attempt to perform do-it-yourself abortions (see: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/06/opinion/06fri3…. )
