Planned Parenthood Does Not Perform Mammograms

One of the repeated claims made by supporters of Planned Parenthood is that it performs Mammograms.  Either this claim is false or it is doing so illegally. All facilities that perform mammograms are required to have a certificate from the Department of Health and Human Services.  In response to a request from the Alliance Defense fund, the Department of Health and Human Services stated that no Planned Parenthood clinic has a certificate to perform mammograms.  None, Zilch nada.  Read it for yourself.  Obama's statement that women are relying on Planned Parenthood for mammograms is either a lie or a negligent statement based on a failure to do even a minimal investigation of a program that receives hundreds of millions of dollars of federal money.

The Foia request was filed because of an undercover investigation in which more than 30 planned parenthood clinics were asked if they performed mammograms and all said no.  Wanting to find the clinics that did provide mammograms, the Alliance Defense Fund sent in a FOIA request.  The answer is, clearly, that Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms.

The President made a false statement during the debate about this issue.  It is part of the new Obama war on truth.  It is time to call him on his lies.
