In their latest sting, Live Action decided to call Planned Parenthood clinics in 27 states to set up appointments for mammograms. Not surprisingly, they admitted to not owning the machines or performing the service. Get the details and listen to the recording Here.
This sting is in response to PP president Cecile Richards’ claim that stripping PP of federal funding would be devastating to women’s health, as PP performs vital mammograms. She’s wrong. PP performs breast exams, not mammograms. PP gives referrals for mammograms. Therefore the only people who will be negatively impacted are adolescent males across America.
It’s every puerile male dream come true to have women pay to have their breasts felt for no useful medical purpose, only to have a referral handed to them for a mammogram. Scanning the breast for lumps not yet detectable is the essence of mammography. Sorry boys, but Live Action ruined the dream.
This also calls to mind Susan G. Komen Foundation’s donations of millions of dollars to PP with the explanation that PP performs mammograms. Komen President Nancy Brinker sat on the board of directors for PP in Texas, and certainly knows better. So there’s even more fraud afoot.
So, Live Action has demonstrated through their stings that PP:
Lies about performing mammograms.
Lies about what abortion is.
Conspires with children to cover the age of the child’s rapist.
Conspires with pimps in child sex-trafficking.
Believes that parents of young children have no right to know of their daughter’s sexual activity.
Has in place programs to bypass mandatory parental notification and consent laws through judicial bypass.
Denies treatment to people lacking insurance or cash.
Sends sex workers and others to donate blood as a means of obtaining free STD testing.
Claims condoms to be safe and effective, when CDC states otherwise.
It’s time to begin the mantra that PP is bad for the public health.
