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 needBut 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
