"Desperate Dems Recycle Planned Parenthood's Mammogram Lie"
I'm surprised to see this one again after being proven false so many times...
Michelle Malkin posted about it at Townhall.com:
"An investigation of 30 Planned Parenthood clinics in 27 different states, conducted by pro-life group Live Action, confirmed that the abortion provider does not perform breast-cancer screenings. 'We don't provide those services whatsoever,' a staffer at Planned Parenthood of Arizona confessed on tape.
Planned Parenthood's Comprehensive Health Center clinic in Overland Park, Kan., admitted: 'We actually don't have a, um, mammogram machine at our clinics.'
Even the liberal Washington Post doled out a three (out of four) Pinocchio rating for the White House's mammogram lies. 'The problem here is that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms or even possess the necessary equipment to do so,' the paper's resident fact-checker reported. 'As such, the organization certainly does not 'provide' mammograms in the strict sense. Instead, its clinics provide referrals and direct low-income women toward resources to help pay for the procedure. These services are by no means unique to Planned Parenthood. In fact, the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Cancer Society provide them, as well.'"
