Prolife activists force Planned Parenthood to admit that it does not provide mammograms.

This is always entertaining:

The day before hundreds of pro-life activists prepared to flood Planned Parenthood’s offices with requests to schedule a mammogram, the organization issued a statement admitting that they do not offer the cancer screening procedure at any of their facilities.

The calls were placed today as part of “Call Planned Parenthood to Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day” – an event organized by pro-life activists in response to President Obama’s statement during the presidential debate Tuesday that the abortion organization offers mammograms.

“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,” the president had said, repeating a claim he had made earlier this summer in an interview with Glamour magazine.

Not least because it typically frustrates the Left no end when it’s reminded that all the really creative and effective activism done these days is done by the Right.  Progressives can’t seem to get beyond the picayune concepts of Costumes and Giant Puppets, alas…

    My Mom is a 12 yr. breast cancer survivor. A mammogram saved her life. Good on these ladies–nothing makes me more furious.

    If you go to the PP link and click on the full statement, you’ll see that they have a link to the news story that Susan G Komen has restored funding for their breast cancer screenings. So do they do these “screenings” also known as “mammograms” or not, Dr. Nucatola??

    Maybe one of these days we can get them to admit that they’re doing abortions for the money. Well, also for eugenics, but mostly for the money.
