On the Jay Leno show last night, President Barack Obama lied again to voters by repeating his false statement that planned Parenthood does mammograms. That’s despite the abortion business admitting last week that it only refers women for them, as any legitimate medical center would do.
Obama’s comment drew immediate criticism from pro-life advocates.
“Planned Parenthood is an abortion-centered, profit-driven business, funded by taxpayers who oppose their practices,” Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser told LifeNews. “The President and his allies are using scare tactics with women’s health in order to get their vote. President Obama should be exposed for promoting these falsehoods.”
She continued: “Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion provider – performing 392 abortions for every individual adoption referral it makes – and does not provide comprehensive, whole woman’s health care, including mammograms. We once again call on President Obama to immediately stop misleading the American people by repeating the falsehood that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. As she has taken time off to campaign for him full time, perhaps Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards could set the President straight.”
