O.K. I'll bite, even IF the "they fund them" ploy were totally correct. Why? Why must I fund the mammograms with my tax money? Why should some unelected, unaccountable organization, a so called "charity" (they turn a profit..were is the charity status rational) get huge chunks of money funneled through that "charity" via a robbing of me, government raking off thier "cut" then funneled through various "front charities" and their "cut"like PP to the affiliate health provide and their "cut" to finally provide the dubious "health care" to the indigent recipient.? There is such a thing called medicare and medicaid, a direct infusion of cash to service provider via my extorted taxes, that method only has one "rake off" for the Government.

Yesterday I gave readers a friendly reminder about the fact Planned Parenthood doesn't perform life saving mammograms as President Obama and Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards have claimed. During the presidential debate on Tuesday night in New York, Obama said, "When Gov. Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care; they rely on it for mammograms."
