Do you remember how Cecile Richards shrieked about the poor women who'd be denied their mammograms, should Planned Parenthood be denied continued access to our wallets? Well you'll be shocked - just shocked, I tell you - to learn that Planned Parenthood doesn't do mammograms!
Check out this Brietbart report. Abby Johnson revealed that while she directed a PP center, they didn't do mammograms. Live Action did some investigative work and found that in 27 of our 50 states (make that "57", if you're an Obama-phile), the local PPs did not perform mammograms. I already suspected that, when I went to the 16th Street Planned Parenthood in Washington DC. On the front of their building they hanged a banner advertising all the lovely stuff they do. Guess what was missing? Yep! Mammograms! But you needn't believe me! Go to the website and look at the offerings of the various locations. At best, they provide mammogram referrals. That's right! The mammograms are done at other facilities, not Planned Parenthood. Cecile Richards, in that clip on the Breitbart report, is not being truthful when she says that unless Planned Parenthood picks your pockets, women will be denied mammograms.

That being said, I'm happy to report that as of now, it looks like the GOP is going to stand firm this time. Let's keep on encouraging them to do so. I for one wouldn't think it a tragedy at all if the federal beheamoth was brought to a standstill for a few blessed days.
