Thousands call Planned Parenthood for mammograms after Obama's claim

By Carl Bunderson

Denver, Colo., Oct 20, 2012 / 06:30 pm (EWTN News)

Nearly 2,000 pro-lifers called local Planned Parenthood clinics Oct. 18 to schedule mammograms, after President Obama implied the organization offers the service.

"When Gov. 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,” said Obama Oct. 16 during the second presidential debate.

Planned Parenthood does not actually provide women with mammograms, but refers patients out to other facilities for the exam.

“Call it for what it is … if you're not doing mammograms, don't say that you do them,” Kate Bryan, communications director for Live Action, told EWTN News Oct. 19.

In response to the implication that the organization provides mammograms, the pro-life groups And Then There Were None and Live Action organized “Call Planned Parenthood to Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day.”

Bryan said the idea was generated by And Then There Were None, and that Live Action “thought it was a great idea, to get to the bottom of it and expose the truth.”

Participants called the organization's national toll-free number to be connected to their local center, and were instructed to “tell Planned Parenthood you would like to schedule a mammogram,” according to Live Action's website.

The event's Facebook page asserted that “President Obama, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards, celebrities in Hollywood and countless Planned Parenthood supporters claim over and over that they” provide mammograms.

It also showed that 1,975 persons confirmed that they were participating in the event to “call out” Planned Parenthood, a turnout that Bryan deemed “a great success.”

In a February episode of The Joy Behar Show, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said that “ if this bill ever becomes law, millions of women in this country are going to lose their health care access, not to abortion services, (but) to basic family planning. You know, mammograms, cancer screenings,” referring to a GOP-backed bill that would have cut funding to the organization.

Bryan characterized Richards' and Obama's comments as claiming Planned Parenthood is “doing all these live-saving treatments,” and “taking credit for” mammograms.

A statement released by Planned Parenthood on Oct. 17 said that “like the vast majority of primary care physicians and ob-gyns, Planned Parenthood doctors and nurses refer patients to other facilities for mammograms based on breast exams, age, or family history.”

The organization does provide clinical breast exams at their facilities.

“For many women, Planned Parenthood is the only health care provider they will see all year, and thus the only way they will get a referral for a mammogram.”

According to the statement, women “rely on Planned Parenthood for referrals for and financial help with mammograms and specialized diagnostic follow-up tests (like ultrasounds and biopsies).”

The claim that Planned Parenthood improves access to mammograms and other health services is often used to maintain taxpayer funding for the group.

:rolleyes: This is the issue to focus on in regarding Planned Parenthood? They offer SO MANY services to women that it's a necessity for many of them. So they don't provide mammograms. They provide countless other things. But yes, let's focus on what they don't offer because the President said something incorrect instead of focusing on what they DO offer and wanting to save THOSE services.

Brilliant.

So Planned Parenthood does not actually do mammograms themselves, but they assist women in finding providers to do the mammograms.

What a terrible, terrible lie to focus on.

Like I said, Planned Parenthood is necessary for so many things for so many women ... Obama is right in attempting to save it. Whether or not he's right about what particular services they provide.

done. obama purposely lied.

Shall we list the things Romney has lied about? I guarantee they're a little more significant than whether or not PP provides mammograms ;)

Or do you only get outraged when one candidate does it?

I love the spin on the proto-copy used as the basis of this thread... It seems they missed one small detail:

Planned Parenthood does not actually provide women with mammograms, but refers patients out to other facilities for the exam.

By eliminating Planned Parenthood, Romney will by proxy be depriving women from getting them, for many will no longer be referred to the other facilities for the exam.

Out of curiosity, should we hereon in refer to Mittens as 'the Mexican'?

You need a doctor's referral for a mammogram, so it would be true that women "rely" (note the language, it does not say "provide") on PP for mammograms. Also, mammograms are only one component of breast cancer screening, and not generally used for women under 40.

What you're stating is a lie, isn't ACTUALLY a lie though. They help women get mammograms.

So now we know that Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms and that saying they do is actually a total lie.

"I want to take this opportunity to mention how thankful I am for an Obama re-election. The choice was clear. We cannot live in a country that treats homosexuals and women as second class citizens. Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."

Women still rely on them for the mammograms they require, though.

Thank you for proving the point that Obummer flat out lied in regards to Planned Parenthood providing mammograms.

You aren't reading what I'm saying.

The President, quoted above, states that women rely on Planned Parenthood for mammograms. This is true. While PP doesn't provide the mammogram itself, it does refer their patients to a doctor so that these women CAN get a mammogram.
