(The Raw Story)   TX GOP Candidate for LT governor says that it " is a myth that Planned Parenthood has anything to do with women's health,". I mean c'mon, they expect us to believe "mammograms" or "gynecologists" are real things? Nice try Planned Parenthood   (rawstory.com) divider line 107

Planned parenthood does not perform mammograms.

Planned Parenthood's services help avoid nearly half a million unwanted pregnancies each year. They are America's biggest abortion preventer.

SauronWasFramed: Planned parenthood does not perform mammograms.


But...

"Planned Parenthood offers comprehensive breast health care management, which includes manual breast exams as well as patient education on breast health. That care management program includes providing women with information about mammograms, referring them to health centers where they can obtain mammograms, and assisting them in covering the costs of the procedure by referring them to government programs that provide free mammograms or by using grant funds to reimburse the medical providers who perform the mammograms."

So the GOP politician is still full of sh*t.

actually, abortion is over 90 percent of what planned parenthood does.*

*not intended to be a factual statement.

Although not mamograms, they do perform breast exams; but you can get pretty much any Farker to do that, right?

Pap smears and STD treatments, not so much.

Well that's that. I am definitely not voting for the Submitter.

Really, because when I was on unemployment Planned Parenthood did my pap smears, fished a dislodged IUD out of my uterus, and referred me for a mammogram.  In addition to the prerequisite birth control options.  I guess nobody bothered to tell them they have nothing to do with women's health.

Well that's the problem, isn't it? With Planned Parenthood preventing all these abortions, what do far right politicians have to motivate their fundamentalist single issue whackadoodle base?

Pretty soon safe and legal abortions will be impossible to obtain anywhere from Texas to Florida. Then what will GOP candidates do? Terrorism doesn't have the same *bang* it did ten years ago. If you think that's going to drive the yahoos out to the polls forget about it.

Its freaking election season! We need to drive PP out of business and get those abortoplexes humming, man!

That's some fancy nitpicking on "rely on Planned Parenthood for ... mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings."

And who cares about the cervical cancer screenings anyway?

god, woman plumbing is so much more complicated than man plumbing. all i have to do is keep it drained, not stick it in random stuff and clean it.

In cases of a legitimate female outreach, the GOP has ways of shutting the whole thing down.

and what about that whole "female orgasm" myth the feminazis keep going on and on about wanting us to believe in. I've heard all about it but never seen one in real life.

Well ok, but only sluts and whores actually go to the doctor for wimmins issues....or so I am reliably informed by many of my conservative friends. Good, honest women know that Jesus will fix their uterus via miracle if they ever need it...which they won't, because ya know...they're with the Jesus.

netizencain: Honest question... he seems to have a valid point... why are all the PP shops closing up in Texas?  What am I missing?


Some have closed completely, others have stopped providing abortion services. They were forced to do this because the Texas legislature passed onerous and unnecessary requirements for abortion providing facilities, and the fifth circuit court of appeals upheld the law as constitutional.

Republicans lost the abortion debate in court so they opted to first bomb clinics, terrorize doctors and patients and when that didn't work they legislated it out of existence by placing ridiculous restrictions on providers

The two worst things that could happen to the Republican party are constitutional amendments banning abortion and gay marriage.

It's perfectly legitimate to require a level 4 burn ward, a radiologist who speaks fluent Hungarian, Klingon, and Farsi, and no less than 31 medical sinks per staff member - including the secretary up front.

Abortion is much safer than pregnancy, so yes, Planned Parenthood is improving women's health regardless of their specific service.

Can someone please explain how a non-profit organization that relies on government subsidies and donations "makes money?"
