    'It seems a little late in the game to be getting this well-established falsehood wrong'! Longtime journalist and commentator Brit Hume has gone to social media to scorch National Public Radio for falsely reporting that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. He cited a report from the Media Research Center’s NewsBusters that said, “NPR spreads old lie that Planned Parenthood offers mammograms.” “On Friday’s ‘All Things Considered,’ NPR health policy correspondent Alison Kodjak was the offender as she reported on President Trump’s reversal of Barack Obama’s attempt to preserve Planned Parenthood subsidies in [GOP] states that moved to defund them,” the report...

    It’s a tired lie. It’s been repeated by politicians, celebrities and admirers of the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood. The fact is, saying Planned Parenthood does mammograms does not make it so. Last night at the Indiana Gubernatorial Debate, abortion came up (video here, question begins at 30:13). Democrat John Gregg defended his support for taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, citing mammograms as a reason they deserve our tax dollars. Let’s be clear: Planned Parenthood does NOT do mammograms. Even Planned Parenthood’s head, Cecile Richards, was forced to admit this fact at a Congressional hearing in 2015. So, Planned Parenthood does...

    On today’s Meet the Press, Chuck Todd helped perpetuate the myth that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. Interviewing Donald Trump, Todd said “Democrats will say the money they give to Planned Parenthood does not go to abortions. That the money they give to Planned Parenthood only goes to other women’s health issues including mammograms and things like that.” Let’s make this absolutely clear: Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms. Its own FAQ on the matter makes that clear. Even the Washington Post says “the myth that Planned Parenthood actually offers mammogram X-rays to patients has been long debunked, and needs to...

    There was just a great moment at the House hearing gong on right now where Cecile Richards was forced to admit under questioning from Rep.

    Hundreds of women called their local Planned Parenthood clinics Monday to schedule a mammogram, but none were able to successfully secure an appointment. That’s because the nation’s largest abortion provider doesn’t actually offer them. The phone calls were part of “Schedule Your Mammogram Day,” an event organized by And Then There Were None, a pro-life organization, to raise awareness of Planned Parenthood’s deceptive claims on women’s health.The misconception that the nation’s largest abortion provider has been offering mammograms is a common claim, repeated by the media. During the Miss America competition last week, Miss Tennessee, Hannah Robinson, parroted one of...

    The gruesome hits keep coming for the baby butchers of Planned Parenthood. President Obama and his top health officials have one last-ditch response left: Quick, hide behind the imaginary mammogram machine! As more graphic, money-grubbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood's for-profit aborted baby parts racket emerge thanks to the investigative work of the Center for Medical Progress, desperate Democrats are in full deflection mode. U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell defended federal funding for Planned Parenthood this week by invoking the women's health shield. "What I think is important is that our HHS funding is focused...

    Breast cancer screenings may not lead to fewer deaths but may lead to overdiagnosis, U.S. researchers suggest. In areas of the U.S. with high levels of screening, more tumors were diagnosed—but breast cancer death rates were no lower than in areas with fewer screenings, researchers report. “The mortality results that we observed are far from definitive,” cautioned Charles Harding, the study’s lead author from Seattle, Washington. “The most dramatic finding of our study is the immediately evident—and substantial—evidence of breast cancer overdiagnosis,” he told Reuters Health in an email. …

    In the wake of President Barack Obama’s assertion that women “rely on” Planned Parenthood for mammograms, about 2,000 pro-life activists called Planned Parenthood offices to schedule appointments for the breast health service, according to the Catholic EWTN News. While Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms, however, it does offer breast exams and referrals. “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.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 18, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The day before hundreds of pro-life activists prepared to flood Planned Parenthood’s offices with requests to schedule a mammogram, the organization issued a statement admitting that they do not offer the cancer screening procedure at any of their facilities. The calls were placed today as part of “Call Planned Parenthood to Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day” – an event organized by pro-life activists in response to President Obama’s statement during the presidential debate Tuesday that the abortion organization offers mammograms. “There are millions of women all across the country, who rely on...

    A deliberate effort is underway to rebrand Planned Parenthood as an integral provider of healthcare services, without which untold millions of women would lack basic medical care, or so the story goes. Thus, whenever any effort is made to cut off funding for the nation’s largest abortion provider and stalwart financier of leftist politicians, we’re told there is a “war on women.” But it’s not a “war on women” when a state simply places a higher priority on funds for true health services that Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform Take, for example, mammograms. Yes, mammograms. Perhaps there is no greater falsehood...

    Slowly but surely the truth is coming out about Obamacare: Conservatives were right. Conservatives said Obamacare would cost trillions. Our intellectual and moral superiors on the left sneered. The CBO reported this week that Obamacare will cost nearly $1.8 trillion in the first 10 years alone — nearly double what Democrats said it would cost. And instead of reducing the deficit, Obamacare will increase the deficit. Conservatives said Obamacare would cost people their health insurance. Our intellectual and moral superiors on the left sneered. The CBO reported this week that Obamacare already has cost 4 million people their health insurance....

    February 2, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a tense exchange with MNSBC’s Andrea Mitchell Thursday, the founder of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure explained that her group stopped funding Planned Parenthood because the abortion organization doesn’t actually provide cancer screenings, but simply refers patients to other clinics. While extreme vitriol has been aimed at the breast cancer foundation following the news of their decision this week, Komen founder and CEO Nancy Brinker says the decision was simply the result of putting “metrics, outcomes, and measures” to their grants for better use of funds. Mitchell objected, questioning Komen’s possible political...

    Calls to de-fund and efforts to defend Planned Parenthood have reached a fever pitch in light of the potential shutdown on Capitol Hill, with Democrats pointing to Republicans’ unwillingness to drop Planned Parenthood cuts as the reason for an imminent government shutdown. “Republicans want to shut down our nation’s government because they want to make it harder for women to get the health services they need,” Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on the floor Friday. “This is indefensible and everyone should be outraged — men and women should be outraged.” Both sides have gone to the mat over...
