Planned "Parenthood" Bait and Switch... Every 21 minutes

First Planned Parenthood's president says they provide mammograms.

Media Matters Refuses To Retract Factual Error -yet reveals why no one should support the Susan G Komen foundation
now they're switching to another claim, pushed by their allies in the PC media--to wit or not, this Chicago Tribune op-ed, that Planned Parenthood won't be able to provide cervical cancer screenings without federal $$$.

Unintentional consequences, I know. The sleuths of the Media Matters research team and their post drives the point home of why Planned Parenthood does not need taxpayer subsidies for cancer screenings:

In a statement to Media Matters, Felicia Chase Goodman, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Central Texas, explained that through a grant provided by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Planned Parenthood “provides referrals and pays for mammograms and diagnostic follow up treatment for our patients at area radiology and surgical clinics.” Goodman said that last year alone, Planned Parenthood patients received 609 screening mammograms and 125 diagnostic mammograms. emphasis mine

First, I will say at least we now know where some of the Komen PP money is going. Secondly, while others have hashed out the provider-location argument, I would like to go back to the original point that Planned Parenthood’s CEO Cecile Richards made as the main reason to oppose the Pence Amendment to end PP’s taxpayer funding:

“If this bill ever becomes law, millions of women in this country are gonna lose their health care access–not to abortion services–to basic family planning, you know, mammograms, cancer screenings, cervical cancer.” emphasis mine

Richards immediately pushes the panic button of family planning, mammograms, cancer screenings, and cervical cancer [screenings]. However, as Media Matters shows us, Planned Parenthood’s mammograms are paid for by a grant from the Komen Foundation, while the Breast and Cervical Cancer Services (BCCS) program helps poor or uninsured women receive the services they need

You can get your cancer screenings--it's the law. You just don't need to get them at Planned Parenthood.

...So tell me, Ms. Trib editorial coordinator, why anyone would get their "health care" at Planned Parenthood...I guess it's like reading Playboy for the articles.

I wonder how many people realize that cervical cancer is largely a sexually-transmitted disease. It is caused by the human papilloma virus and the best way to get it is to have promiscuous sex as a teenager.

Good point, Dessert Survivor.

Underage girls brought in to be exploited yet again.
