    The claim that PP provides certain services was shown to be a lie a few years ago. What amazes me is that they take millions of tax payer dollars each year, don't provide shit, they make millions each year and donate to the Dems. Sounds like a money laundering operation to me. It's also been shown, on video, that they facilitate abortions for minors, even victims of statutory rape. They assist prostitutes and pimps by giving suggestions how to run their business.

    PP doesn't even do the actual abortions. What do they really do? And why are they worth a penny of our money?

    Did anyone ever think that Planned Parenthood performs mammograms? But IIRC they do often help provide funding for women to obtain mammograms from other providers. They also provide clinical breast exams.

    Well since we currently have Obamacare, why is there any need for the government to fund Planned Parenthood? All those poor women that can't afford care that rely on Planned Parenthood are getting insurance.

    Exactly. The breast exam is done at PP, and if there needs to be a follow up mammogram, PP then assists the woman in getting one, financially if that is required.

    What Planned Parenthood does is find funding for women to get mammograms, make the appointments, and send women to clinics that DO have mammograms. It helps make women aware of the options for preventative care that are available (and a mammogram is one of the very few services that PP does not do onsite).

    For example, I had never head of Family Pact (http://www.familypact.org/) until a Planned Parenthood PA told me about it. An amazing service that saves a lot of people a lot of money (it is a lot cheaper to prevent problems than to fix them).

    Basic gynecological health is available at PP, including PAP scans, STD tests, treatment of UTIs and yeast infections (and may I point out that these things happen to ALL people, regardless of their civil status, politics, etc).
