During Tuesday’s debate, President Barack Obama advanced a falsehood:
Millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care. They rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings.
Of course, it is a documented fact that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms. Not only did a Live Action investigation expose the ruse last year, the Department of Health and Human Resources confirmed it, and finally, so has Planned Parenthood itself. (Jump to 1:35 on the video.)
But either the president hasn’t received the memo, or he doesn’t care. And Planned Parenthood made no effort to publicly correct the president after the gaffe.
So our friends Abby Johnson and Lila Rose have come up with a great idea: “Call Planned Parenthood to Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day” – today!
Instructions are at the link, including a script. But basically the plan is for everyone to call their local Planned Parenthood today and attempt to schedule a mammogram.
