Myths Dispelled During Planned Parenthood Oversight Committee Meeting.
EveryJoe: Tuesday’s Planned Parenthood Oversight Committee meeting saw the mega abortion provider’s president, Cecile Richards, sitting in front of congressional members for just over five hours. While there was plenty to see and hear, there were some very important moments that are worth noting.
1. There are no mammograms at Planned Parenthood
The myth that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms has been widely circulated for longer than many people can remember. While that myth has been disproven in the past, we now have it from the mouth of Richards herself, who was forced to admit this fact when asked directly about it from Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-WY). Furthermore, as Lummis pointed out, Planned Parenthood spent $5.1 million on travel alone, which equates to $14,000 a day.
