Planned Parenthood's lies exposed: Abortion mills don't even HAVE mammogram machines, let alone care about women's health

Planned Parenthood

(NaturalNews) There's no more trying to cover up the truth about Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion provider. Despite what you may have heard, Planned Parenthood does not offer women mammograms, nor does it really do anything noteworthy in the "women's health" department other than murder unwanted babies in the womb for profit.

And this isn't speculation – it's right from the horse's mouth! Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards was forced to admit this dirty truth during a recent hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, during which she openly confessed that not a single Planned Parenthood clinic has a mammogram machine (did you hear that Obama?).

In the immediate aftermath of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) release of undercover videos depicting Planned Parenthood employees bartering aborted baby body parts in exchange for cold cash, the mainstream media went wild claiming that Planned Parenthood does more than just terminate unborn human lives – Planned Parenthood also provides mammograms to irradiate women to detect breast cancer, we are told.

But this isn't the truth, and Richards 'fessed up to this after being pressed under oath to address the fact that none of the roughly 700 Planned Parenthood locations nationwide even have a mammogram machine.

"If you would give me one moment to explain," Richards squirmed, adding that "Planned Parenthood is a women's health center, just like where I go for my breast exams every year."

Oh, so Planned Parenthood centers aren't actually women's health centers, in other words. They just look like women's health centers, according to Richards. And when women mistakenly come to a Planned Parenthood center looking for care, they're referred elsewhere, according to Richards.

"If you need a mammogram, you're referred to a radiological center, and that's how women actually receive their care," she admitted to the committee.

Planned Parenthood is about profiting from abortion, and nothing more

I don't know about you, but calling yourself a women's health center when all you really do is refer women to women's health centers doesn't actually make you a women's health center. The only thing Planned Parenthood actually does is provide abortions, period.

And while some Planned Parenthood centers do provide "breast exams," according to Richards, the data show that even these are on the decline. Planned Parenthood only has so much time and so many resources to provide services to women, and the services it's chosen to focus on are abortions.

Representative Jason Chaffetz, a Republican from Utah, showed a slide at the hearing that clearly illustrates where Planned Parenthood's loyalties lie. Two arrows, one pink and one red, show a massive increase in the number of abortions provided by Planned Parenthood between 2006 and 2013, and a massive decrease in the number of cancer screenings and prevention services provided during the same period.

Abortions rose from 289,750 in 2006 to 327,000 in 2013, a 13 percent increase. Breast exams, on the other hand, dropped from 2,007,371 in 2006 to 953,573 in 2013, a whopping 115 percent decrease.

"Planned Parenthood's supporters love to pretend that defunding Planned Parenthood would be bad for women's health and health care for poor communities," wrote Palmer Williams for the American Center for Law and Justice.

"But Ms. Richards once again confirmed... that Planned Parenthood clinics provide significantly fewer services than federally qualified health centers, and those centers provide all of the same non-abortion services provided by Planned Parenthood, including birth control, manual breast exams, and STD testing."
