Republican liar. Planned Parenthood does indeed provide Mammograms.

The Quote of the Decade: "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006 (it was so nice of him to give us this great quote for posterity!)
Ryan Tibbs October 25, 2012 at 06:40 PM
Planned Parenthood actually does not perform mammograms as they are not licensed to do so. They DO, however provide breast examinations and referrals to have mammograms done.
Kim L October 25, 2012 at 07:04 PM
(CNSNews.com) – During Tuesday's second presidential debate, President Barack Obama said that women "rely" on Planned Parenthood for mammograms, but, according to the Food and Drug Administration, no Planned Parenthood facility in the United States is licensed to do mammograms. here you go the original bill
Adam C. Miller October 25, 2012 at 07:20 PM
Wait, our President CLEARLY stated Planned Parenthood provides mammograms... Soooo women don't "rely on it for mammograms"?
Bill October 25, 2012 at 07:36 PM
nope, no mammograms at Planned Parenthood. Obama knows that very well. Quite bluntly, he lied during the debate and yesterday on the View. His philosophy is that if you say something enough times, people will start to believe you. Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion provider – performing 392 abortions for every individual adoption referral it makes – and does not provide comprehensive, whole woman’s health care, including mammograms. They are in the business of Abortion so everything they do points in that direction.
James Murphy October 25, 2012 at 07:38 PM
I will provide breast examinations for free also :)
Jason Baird October 25, 2012 at 08:52 PM
I cannot believe people actually think PP does mammograms. Clearly they have not read the news in the last few years???
James Murphy October 25, 2012 at 10:02 PM
jason ..Obama said it during the debate so its become the kool-aid drinkers new talking point
James Murphy October 25, 2012 at 10:04 PM
bill the repubs and dems here really do not want to hear about your pro life comments
Adam C. Miller October 26, 2012 at 01:15 AM
Barack Obama said Mitt Romney wants to deny women mammograms lol
Kim L October 26, 2012 at 01:31 AM
BREAKING NEWS MSNBC has just reported that barak Obama says Romney cheats on crossword puzzles
Kim M October 26, 2012 at 03:06 AM
Planned parenthood offers referrals for mammograms - isn't that the same as providing them? Because if not - you're all full of beans because PP doesn't perform abortions either - they REFER people for them. So if they refer for both services why are all you right wing god-nuts penalizing them for one referral and not counting the other for one of their services. Answer: the truth is that your uncomfortable with a black president. He's just a jive shucker anyway!
Kim M October 26, 2012 at 03:14 AM
PP is not licensed to perform mammograms? How in the world do they perform abortions? Oh......that's right they dont! I heard big bird performs abortions we should cut the funding to that show!
Jason Baird October 26, 2012 at 01:44 PM
@ Kim. Seriously? Because he's Black? You really think that don't you?
lyn October 26, 2012 at 02:00 PM
Kim M- This is from Planned Parenthood's site: "Abortions are available at many Planned Parenthood health centers, clinics, and the offices of private health care providers". So, apparently they DO perform abortions. But they DO NOT perform mammograms. So, maybe you should check your facts before letting those names fly.
James Thomas October 26, 2012 at 02:52 PM
Obama lied and Ambassadors died.
Dan LaVigne October 26, 2012 at 03:16 PM
Yes Planned Parenthood gives free mamograms to low income women. Where is there a law that says that women cannot have complete control over there lives when it comes to medical decisions. Is there a law that says only men can make that choice for women. So far we have religion telling our government what they can and cannot do when it comes to womens lives. How about when a women decideds to have an abortion that the man who got her pregnant also have an abortion and has his part cut off.
Jason Baird October 26, 2012 at 03:39 PM
Dan you are like the 5th person on this thread to say that PP gives mammograms. Do me a favor.. go to THEIR website and expand "Where can i get a mammogram" http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-topics/womens-health/mammogram-21195.htm .. now, as for your remark about a man having his "part cut off?" You do understand that it takes two people to conceive a child and only one to kill it? Religion telling our government what to do? Seriously? Have you, at least for a moment really researched the pro-life side? I suggest that you go do.. and just start with http://www.abort73.com/ If you can get through the actual truth about abortion and see that it's a choice your heart is hard dude.
James Thomas October 26, 2012 at 03:41 PM
James Murphy, yes we do. Go Pro-Life Bill.
James Thomas October 26, 2012 at 03:44 PM
BREAKING NEWS MSNBC has just reported that the thrill up Cris Mathews leg has has turned wet and left a stain.
James Thomas October 26, 2012 at 03:51 PM
Dan, if there were such a law then there would be far fewer Democrats for me to worry about. And those who were left would be "partless". Or more "partless" than they admit to being now.
Dan LaVigne October 26, 2012 at 08:25 PM
You do not know what you are talking about when it comes to Plan Parenthood and free mamagrams. I have a family member who is the director of Plan Parenthood in Norther California and they are the only ones out there who will help women in need when it comes to there health.You do not have to be a Democrat to stand up for women and tell all the good so called christians and repulicans to stay the hell out of what is a womens right to choose when it comes to her health. Of all the religions to preach about womens health is the dam Catholic Church who cannot control there priests from raping and abusing children. They have covered up this crime for the last 50 years and its still going on. So take you holy believes and attitudes and shove them up your A
tom m October 26, 2012 at 08:33 PM
dan for the 6th time ....according to the Food and Drug Administration, no Planned Parenthood facility in the United States is licensed to do mammograms.
John McMillan October 26, 2012 at 09:29 PM
Yeah Kim, that comment about same sex couples was pretty offensive....but then again, most of your comments are. But just keep pumping them out so the same sex couples can keep adopting them...thanks! They'll take them when you don't want anything to do with them. But hey, that's the "sanctity of marriage" people and the "pro-lifers" for ya...once they're actually born out of wedlock, no one gives a damn about them...except the gays, apparently.
lyn October 26, 2012 at 09:31 PM
Dan- I think you are confused on what breast screenings are that Planned Parenthood offers. They perform exams. Then they may refer or assist in referrals to other places for mammograms, which are x-rays, to be performed. Check their website and ask your relative. Doing an exam, a screening, is not the same as a mammogram.
Jason Baird October 26, 2012 at 09:36 PM
Oh my gosh.. Dan, they don't do Mammograms dude. Doesn't it anger you that you thought that they did but come to find out that they don't? Is that right? I mean take the elephant and donkey out of the picture. They do not provide mammograms... That was the topic. Now, since you seem to want to steer this into a pro-choice debate, Dan, I'm telling you, no sane pro-choice person after watching a real abortion, on abort73.com for example, can keep their stance. It takes that kind of effort to find and see the truth to make a good decision on the subject. The dismemberment and slow death of an infant inside the womb, that happens 350,000+ times a year at planned parenthood. Again, in this age you can watch exactly what happens, you cannot argue it after you watch it. Great, I'm glad PP assists with women's health, outside the scope of abortion. Look, I will own up to the fact that I'm Christian but I'm not Catholic. Did any of us bring up God at all...? My holy beliefs are from my heart and mind, they wouldn't serve much of a purpose up my A ;) Get angry with what you have been told and led to believe, not us for simply correcting the information you have with the truth.
Bill October 26, 2012 at 09:55 PM
don't be too hard on Dan since he represents a significant number of the voting population. i mean, seriously, facts and truth don't matter to them and they will follow like lemmings right over the cliff(s) both fiscal and moral. and, he does use a common socialist tactic. when the facts don't match their self interest, they divert the discussion and try to shift attention to something totally irrelevant. if you take the bait then they win and avoid facing reality. besides i don't think that dan has the benefit of an education beyond high school if that. it may be impossible for anyone without a grasp of logic or philosophy to really hone in on a complex subject. reading comprehension may also be a challenge. remember what mitt romney said in the first debate when i mentioned teenagers who kept telling lies hoping that if they would repeat the lie often enough then people would buy it?
Dan LaVigne October 26, 2012 at 11:08 PM
Mamagrams are not the best tool for women to see about breast cancer. Their is a better test out their and its called Thermography.Current methods used to detect suspicious signs of breast cancer depend primarily on the combination of both physical exams and mamagrams. Mamagrams only pick out cancer cells. Thermography go farther in that it picks out the cells and tissues and can predict at least three years in advance the start of cancer. Thermography uses Digital Infrared Imaging and not an X-Ray. Just some advise for Women looking for something better to check for breast cancer
