Why do Republicans want to undermine an organization that provides mammograms, cancer screenings, and blood pressure checks? #StandwithPP— Sen. Debbie Stabenow (@SenStabenow) August 3, 2015
Maybe Senator Stabenow hasn’t been following the news of late. Maybe she is completely unaware of the series of videos exposing Planned Parenthood practice of trafficking in the body parts of unborn children. Maybe she didn’t listen to any of speeches by her colleagues to understand why they don’t think America’s leading abortion provider should continue getting millions in tax dollars. Maybe she was unaware that two of her Democratic colleagues were going to vote to defund Planned Parenthood. Maybe she doesn't understand why some people think selling the body parts of unborn children is wrong. Maybe she was unaware the money Planned Parenthood gets would be given to community health centers. Maybe she and her staff haven’t done a minute of research and instead rely solely on Planned Parenthood’s talking points.
Because if they did do the slightest bit of research they would know that Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms. They don’t even have the equipment to provide mammograms. There are more than 8,000 licensed mammogram facilities in the U.S. and Planned Parenthood doesn’t run one of them.
