MAMMOGRAM, PLEASE!: In response to President Obama’s false claim that a reduction in government funding for Planned Parenthood would result in millions of women foregoing mammograms, a pro-life group, Live Action, decided to have 2,000 members call local Planned Parenthood offices to schedule the test. Small problem: Planned Parenthood doesn’t offer mammograms (never has– it refers them out).
But I’m sure that government funding for Planned Parenthood is still necessary for some reason. I mean, it’s not like private funders could keep it going or anything. It’s totally unpopular, especially with wealthy liberal types.
