Obama At Debate: Women Rely On Planned Parenthood For Mammograms – Obama’s HHS: Actually, Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Own Any Mammogram Machines…
But they do own plenty of abortion tools.
(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama said during the second presidential debate against his Republican opponent Mitt Romney that women rely on Planned Parenthood for mammograms, even though the organization does not have any mammogram machines at any of its clinics, according to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
During Tuesday night’s debate against his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, Obama said, “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, for cervical cancer screenings. That’s a pocketbook issue for women and families all across the country, and it makes a difference in terms of how well and effectively women are able to work.”
Last June, the HHS said in a response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that no Planned Parenthood clinic in the United States has mammogram equipment.
