Surprise! Planned Parenthood Doesn't Do Mammograms
From Democrats and their political operatives to Hollywood glitterati and Miss America contestants, one of the more pervasive and oft-repeated myths about Planned Parenthood is that it provides mammograms. Whenever an abortion advocate defends the nation's largest abortion provider — especially arguing that it should continue to receive half a billion taxpayer dollars every year — inevitably, they bring up all the great women's services Planned Parenthood provides. Like mammograms. Except the organization doesn't have a single mammogram machine in any of its offices. Don't take our word for it. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards told Congress Tuesday, "There aren’t any Planned Parenthood clinics — I believe, to the best of my knowledge, not any have mammogram machines at their facility." She was answering a question from Rep. Cynthia Lummis, who asked, "How many Planned Parenthood clinics have mammogram machines?" That question, in turn, followed the sycophantic cooing of Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who included mammograms in her list of the wonderful services provided. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirms that, out of more than 8,700 licensed mammogram facilities in the country, exactly zero are run by Planned Parenthood. So why is the myth so prevalent? First, abortion advocates are always fast and loose with the facts because abortion is so abhorrent it can't be defended on the merits. Second, Planned Parenthood is perfectly content with the false narrative — it boasts of helping women "get access to mammograms" — because it makes the organization look like it just cares about women. Tell that to the 438 unborn baby girls Planned Parenthood kills every day.
