Planned Parenthood’s CEO Cecile Richards said that if they’re shut down women would lose basic health services such as mammograms. There’s a big problem with that statement though, because they don’t do mammograms.
Back in 2012 during the second presidential debate, O said: “When Governor Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care. They rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings.”
Also in 2012, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood, said that “Planned Parenthood does help women nationwide get access to mammograms,” as part of the health care services it provides to nearly 3 million persons each year. “Women rely on Planned Parenthood for referrals and for financial help with mammograms and specialized diagnostic follow-up tests (like ultrasounds and biopsies) when indicated by age, history and/or clinical breast exam.”
They’ve been repeating this false statement for so long they now believe their own lie.
Give it up people – we’re on to you.
