Approx 2,000 pro-lifers call Planned Parenthood for mammograms to prove Obama false
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. That’s a pocketbook issue for women and families all across the country,” Obama said during the second debate on Long Island’s Hofstra University Tuesday night.
Amusing! Live action, of course, knew Pres. Obama’s claim was false the moment he made it. PP had made the same claim early last year and Live Action exposed its falsehood then. There are between 800 and 900 PP centers and affiliate centers in the US (PP’s numbers), so I doubt any one PP center got more than 4 or 5 calls over however many days this was done. Unless PP alerted their front desk people, those people answering the phones probably barely noticed the calls generated by Live Action. It’s kind of funny that, a year and a half after Live Action exposed the falseness of the, “Planned Parenthood does mammograms” Pres. Obama still parroted it.
