Time Magazine Joins The List Of Fake News Outlets By Claiming Planned Parenthood Offers Mammograms


Time Magazine falsely claimed on Thursday that federal funding of Planned Parenthood pays for women to get mammograms.

According to the Daily Caller, the proposed Senate health care bill bars the flow of federal funding to abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, something Time author Alicia Adamczyk claimed “has long been on the wishlist of far-right conservatives.”  

Adamczyk then claimed that “much of the money” that flows into Planned Parenthood “goes towards providing preventive care like birth control, mammograms, and cancer screenings, and to other family planning services.”

There’s just one problem: Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform mammograms.

Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform mammograms, that hasn’t kept the abortion provider’s supporters from claiming otherwise as a reason to continue funding the organization.  

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, for example, falsely claimed in March that “millions of women” turn to Planned Parenthood for mammograms.

Similarly, journalist Tina Brown went on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to falsely claim that defunding Planned Parenthood would harm “hard-pressed women” who depend on the abortion giant for mammograms it doesn’t actually provide. The MSNBC hosts let her off without a fact-check.

    They DO NOT offer any services other and pregnancy cessation. INFANTICIDE. It is simple to prove. Call any facility and try to schedule a mammogram….just try. The panned response is “…we don’t office that service at “this” location”. “Well, where is the closest location I can obtain such service?” You’ll have to call back later and speak to the manager….. Yeah, right!
