    Here is PP's webpage that they refer to:

    FREE Mammograms and Pap Smears - Planned Parenthood - Southeast Iowa

    PP makes it clear that their only role is in helping people get in contact with medical providers who are a part of the program. This isn't controversial, corrupt or questionable at all.
    I think the purpose of the article was to explain that it's much easier to get the free mammograms if you skip going through PP altogether.
    PP slows down the process.

    Pajamas Media » Planned Parenthood: Limiting Access to Mammograms

    Media Matters cited the following as “proof” that Planned Parenthood is transparent about increasing access:
    If you have questions or concerns about breast cancer, we are here to help. A staff member at your local Planned Parenthood health center can discuss breast cancer, breast exams, and breast health with you and help you find the services you need
    .
    But once again, Planned Parenthood directs women to contact Planned Parenthood. This is a sales pitch, not an effort to increase access.
    It is akin to Planned Parenthood advertising that they have the number for the fire department … but you need to call Planned Parenthood to get it. Would anyone disagree that doing this would imperil people, and can not be defined as increasing “access”?
    Google “free mammograms in Iowa” and Planned Parenthood tops the search list over Mercy Medical Center, a facility that actually offers mammograms and even refers potential candidates for free mammograms to the state program’s website so they can get informed without a consultation

    One could also argue that it's easier to get a job by going directly to the employer, but that doesn't stop people from going to intermediaries like temp agencies, and the like. You highlighted the article because you were trying to accuse PP of falsely claiming that it gives out free mammograms. Stop the b.s. please.

    The subject was defunding PP. It will never happen as long as Obama has the veto pen.
    You may think he is a president concerned with womens health. Others think of him as the most pro-abortion president ever.
    Even up to the point he voted to refuse any medical intervention to born alive babies from abortions.

    If people were criticizing them for "trying to save babies" then they would criticize every hospital in the country and the people criticizing them wouldn't have children of their own. Instead, they target holier-than-thou religious people who try to coerce young women into following their own subjective morality. If you want to "save babies", deliver them, don't insult people by spewing Christian bull**** in their faces.

    I did no such thing.
    You stop it.
    Making PP out to be, the be all and end all, to women's health care, is BS and you are the one spewing it.

    Re: Are people who wants to defund Planned Parenthood anti-women?

    Very few supporters of defunding Planned Parenthood intend to harm women's interests; i.e., be “anti-woman;” but, the act of defunding Planned Parenthood has the affect of harming their interests by depriving women across the country of ready accessibility to the health services they need.

    The act of defunding Planned Parenthood is anti-woman.

    Right, I am opposed to defunding PP because I am pro-health and pro-reductions in health care costs.

    "Every year, Planned Parenthood doctors and nurses carry out nearly one million lifesaving screenings for cervical cancer and 830,000 breast exams, and its health centers also provide contraception to nearly 2.5 million patients and nearly four million tests and treatments for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

    Planned Parenthood is also an essential health care provider. For six in 10 women who receive medical care from doctors and nurses at family planning health centers like those run by Planned Parenthood, these centers are their main source of health care. Combined, these two extreme proposals would completely undermine millions of women’s access to basic primary and preventive health care, such as lifesaving cancer screenings, contraception, HIV testing and counseling, STI testing and treatment, and annual exams."

    Better to not give them any hope. I see....
    just let them go to PP and get the damn abortion and to hell will the life that is growing inside her. At least the people at PP won't mention the word God, or faith, or hope, or charity.
    Yea, I can see how evil those CPC's are, at least the ones who are funded by churches.
    Keep them all in court wasting money that would have been spent helping mothers and babies.
