Breast cancer screening, abortion, and money for Planned Parenthood
Supporters of Planned Parenthood are furious about the recent decision by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to cease funding the abortion giant.
I have to admit that Planned Parenthood-with help from the mainstream media-has done a masterful job over the years of drastically downplaying its abortion business while at the same time portraying itself as a leader in women's health, which supposedly includes providing breast cancer screenings.
Not so fast.
From a Feb. 2 article at LifeSiteNews.com:
Although Planned Parenthood often used its role in cancer prevention to argue against the rash of state funding cuts last year, undercover investigations found the claim that it is heavily involved in cancer screening practically baseless.
After Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards in March cited 'mammograms' as one of the group's services, a Live Action investigation found that none of the 27 Planned Parenthood clinics they contacted in 30 states provided the breast cancer screening.
Imagine that. Planned Parenthood stretching the truth?
I guess it's not surprising for an organization that's in the business of killing the innocent unborn, not to mention being investigated by a congressional committee "over abuses ranging from financial disparities to its compliance with federal regulations on taxpayer funding to concerns that it is covering up cases of sex trafficking."

Woe to those who support such evil.
