Let’s be clear once and for all.
Planned Parenthood does not offer mammograms.
Saying they do, is a bald-faced lie and fake news.
Yet, liberals, who never care about facts or lying, continue to spread this whopper in hopes of changing public perception about abortion mill Planned Parenthood.
Just recently liberal “government radio” NPR reported fake news, falsely claiming that Planned Parenthood offers mammograms.
This is yet another example of why you cannot believe the lying liberal media.

Two years ago, The Washington Post “Fact Checker” declared it was a “Three Pinocchios” lie to claim (or imply) Planned Parenthood offers mammograms. Their boss Cecile Richards admitted they while they do breast exams, they have no mammogram machines. They said “supporters should drop this talking point.” But the most liberal news outlets still spread this untruth.
On Friday’s All Things Considered, NPR health policy correspondent Alison Kodjak was the offender as she reported on President Trump’s reversal of Barack Obama’s attempt to preserve Planned Parenthood subsidies in red states that moved to defund them. Here’s where the truth got mangled:
CORNISH: Can you tell us more about the states where this could have real impact?
KODJAK: Well, it depends a little bit on the make-up of the states, obviously. It’s states that are run by Republican legislatures with Republican governors who are likely to support this kind of legislation. States with rural – a lot of rural areas are likely to see a lot of impact because these clinics aren’t everywhere. So if Planned Parenthood is the closest clinic where you can get family planning services — and when I say that, I’m talking about pap smears, mammograms, birth control and in some cases obviously abortions — you might have to travel very far to get those services. You might not get them at all.
There was no balance in this report. Cornish only interviewed Kodjak, which was like interviewing a publicist for Planned Parenthood. Kodjak even complained that in Texas, which set up its own family-planning network, there was a regrettable rise in births: “the result was, after a couple of years, childbirth paid for by Medicaid — which is the population that these Planned Parenthood clinics often serve — rose by 27 percent.”
Kodjak offered none of what NPR surely considers the “anti-abortion” side of the argument: that the defunding followed videotaped exposes of Planned Parenthood coarsely discussing the sale of body parts from its aborted babies. Instead, all the “hostility” to health care came from Republicans.
