Obama Throws Planned Parenthood Under the Bus During Debate, As Pro-lifers Request Imaginary Mammograms

October 21, 2012

Nearly 2,000 pro-lifers called local Planned Parenthood clinics Oct. 18 to  schedule mammograms, after President Obama implied the organization offers the  service.

“When Gov. Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned  Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country who rely on  Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care, they rely on it for mammograms,” said Obama Oct. 16 during the second presidential debate.

Planned Parenthood does not actually provide women with mammograms, but  refers patients out to other facilities for the exam.

“Call it for what it is … if you’re not doing mammograms, don’t say that you  do them,” Kate Bryan, communications director for Live Action, told EWTN News  Oct. 19.

In response to the implication that the organization provides mammograms, the  pro-life groups And Then There Were None and Live Action organized “Call Planned  Parenthood to Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day.”

Pro-lifers have fun with imaginary mammograms.
