Over 680,000 dollars last year flowed from Susan G Komen foundation to various planned parenthood affiliates. The funding will be stopped until the congressional investigation of planned parenthood obtains a result exonerating that organization of the charges of concealing sex abuse of minors.
The actual underlying decision by Komen probably has more to do with loss of contributions because of their longstanding tie with planned parenthood. It has become more publicly known that planned parenthood uses only the “TSA method” of breast cancer screening, not mammography or MRI.
The most in the fewest words from Smokey Bojangles, commenting at The Blaze: “Save the Ta Tas and kill the babies that feed off of them???”
Obama is ready to shut down the government in order to hold onto the Planned Parenthood group. He does not want to defund them, even though it is within the scope of the rich Dems to replace 330 million of tax payer funds with private funds. Their position is that we should all be forced to pay for abortions, birth control, and aiding the sex slave trade.
Lila Rose and Live Action gave us more audio and very well done video to drive home the same point. Jill Stanek and Lila Rose provided more audio showing that there is no mammography equipment at the planned parenthood facilities, driving home the point that the cancer screening, and Komen foundation funding is a scam. One can obtain the grope exam at any airport, from the TSA. 😉
Planned Parenthood is closing its unprofitable clinics, and showing a trend to move towards focus on abortion services. It is also not giving away free services. The claim that they are focused on charitable efforts for low income people is a scam. They do not provide free health care. They outsource the charity patients to public health facilities if medicaid and related funding cannot be obtained.
With all this in mind, Remember that Obama and your Democrats could not produce a budget, and are needing the Republicans to do so.
This is extremely important during the period in which Planned Parenthood is blitzing the media with claims about services lost if that organization is defunded. Visits to their sites show interesting things. Many of the clinics dispense drugs, but they do not offer mammograms off site.
Also planned parenthood refers patients who cannot pay through medicaid, insurance or cash to actual free services ELSEWHERE. This is seen on the collection of Live Action videos which have been featured at this blog during February. Scroll down.
This news makes sense since mammograms are not really a profit center to those health care providers and institutions which provide the service. The third party reimbursement is not very good. Pharmer had always thought that planned parenthood would offer the service at a few of their clinics as a draw to customers, and to justify the claims that they offer comprehensive care to women. But it seems that these claims are simply unfounded and the justification for obtaining grant funds from the Komen Foundation does not exist.
So……… Pharmer has an appointment at the squish machine tomorrow, but it won’t be at planned parenthood. Wouldn’t be caught dead going to one of their facilities for services, even if they actually did offer mammograms.
