Who performs mammograms?

Here is a fact for you:

Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms.

So don’t go there expecting them to find your breast cancer.

What Planned Parenthood will do for you is refer you to a radiology center and pick up the tab for your mammogram.

Here’s another fact for you:

Federal funding (from my tax dollars and yours) for Planned Parenthood is earmarked for prevention. It is illegal for those funds to be used for abortion.

How do I know that the funds don’t bleed over into abortion? I don’t. I don’t know it any more than I know that lady in charge of the pharmacy at the VA isn’t swiping Oxycontin for her personal use or that the man who runs the bill cutter at the Fed isn’t swiping a row of twenties off every hundredth sheet.

All I know is what the regulations are.

I don’t like a lot of what my tax dollars pay for. I suspect you feel the same. Unfortunately, it’s not a buffet, it’s a prix fixe meal – you get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit.

I don’t like the assumption that because I support Planned Parenthood that I am a proponent of abortion or that I am a godless heathen or that I am heartless when it comes to babies or that I am a foaming liberal who believes everyone should be living on the government dime.

  1. Well said my friend. To suggest that any human is so simplistic is beyond insulting.
