Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood Caught in a Lie to Congress

By Rick Pearcey • September 30, 2015, 11:18 AM

Yesterday, Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards told Rep. Mia Love of Utah, "We do not have mamogram machines at our health centers, and we've never stated that we did" (Youtube).

In contrast, Richards said the following on CNN in 2011: "If this bill [cutting off federal funding of Planned Parenthood] ever becomes law, millions of women are going to lose their healthcare access, not to abortion services, to basic family planning, you know, mamograms."

In this Youtube video, Planned Parenthood clinic staff from around the country say their clinics do not provide mamograms: 

* Planned Parenthood of Georgetown: "We do not provide mamograms . . . . We don't deal with the health side of it so much."

* Mid-Town Facility, Indianapolis, Planned Parenthood: "We don't here."

* Washington, D.C., Planned Parenthood: "We do not offer, like, um, the mamogram."

* Atlanta, Ga., Planned Parenthood: "We do not."

* St. Louis, Planned Parenthood: "We don't."

* Perth, N.J., Planned Parenthood: "We don't do mamograms here."

* New York, N.Y., Planned Parenthood: "We don't offer mamograms."

* Burlington, Iowa, Planned Parenthood: "No."

* Lincoln, Nebraska, Planned Parenthood: "No, I'm sorry, we don't."

* Memphis, Tenn., Planned Parenthood: "No ma'am, we sure don't."

* Arizona Planned Parenthood: "We don't provide those services whatsoever."

Clearly, if Planned Parenhood does not provide mamograms or "those services whatsover," it follows that defunding Planned Parenthood will not put obtaining "those services" in jeopardy.

And yet, as noted earlier, Planned Parenthood's CEO Cecile Richards: "If this bill [cutting off federal funding of Planned Parenthood] ever becomes law, millions of women are going to lose their healthcare access, not to abortion services, to basic family planning, you know, mamograms" (see her declaration at the 2:16 mark of this video).

This is, again, the same Cecile Richards who yesterday told Congress, "We do not have mamogram machines at our health centers, and we've never stated that we did."
