Planned Parenthood’s Big Lie About Mammograms

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.

    In Olympia WA, PP refers women for mammograms – to Saint Peter’s Hospital. Yep, to the local Castholic hospital. Don’t do any on their own, expect the Catholics to do (and pay for) them. Much the same elsewhere.

      Referrals are all they do, yet Richards in taking a page from O’s big book of lies makes it sound like they’re actually doing the tests.

      Thanks for adding those links, Uriel. It further confirms that this has been going on for years and only now is the truth coming out. Shut them down!

    Shut them down and charge them with infanticide! That will change things in a hurry! Hold each of them liable for their actions.

    Excellent post and videos, Kathy.

    They lie and America swallows the kool-aid.
