I can’t believe Planned Parenthood supporters still peddle this nonsense. During Tuesday night’s debate Obama said:
“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. That’s a pocketbook issue for women and families all across the country.”
Repeat after me: Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms – anywhere!
In response to yet another of these false claims, Abby Johnson and others decided to have a little fun. They put together the Call Planned Parenthood to Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day event on Facebook. Please join the group and participate in the fun!
While we’re on the subject, can we stop pretending that anyone is honestly talking about shutting down Planned Parenthood or preventing women from getting basic health care? Honestly. The fear mongering Obama campaign ads would be laughable if they weren’t so pathetic.
What are we really talking about here, ladies? We’re talking about whether you should get free birth control and whether taxpayers should continue to fund a private company that not only does not do mammograms as its supporters keep falsely claiming, but is not the comprehensive health care facility for women that it’s also often touted as.
Meanwhile, in Pakistan, a 14 year old girl was shot in the head by terrorists for daring to promote the rights of all girls to become educated.
Please. I do not want to hear another American feminist say that there is a ‘war on women’ in this country. Ever.
