    You're so desperate for outrage that you don't even finish reading the article.



    And if you want to get technical here, since your so desperate to hang on to any minute deta that might mean "OMG the Dems and politifact are in on a conspiracy!!", O'mally actully said the work PP does is "about mammograms" not "preforming mammograms". And indeed, preforming breast exams and providing referrals and financial assistance to women for mammograms is certainly "about mammograms" in my book.
    I do not think he read the article at all! Imagine that! The first one to correct others did not read that PP stating PP does not do Mammograms!

    And yet they only rated a statement saying they do as Half True.

    Rich Lowry pointed out that by this kind of logic, Major League Baseball should be considered a hot dog distributor instead of a sports league. After all, there's only a couple thousand games a year but they sell millions of hot dogs.

    You are avoiding the fact you did not read Babbas post about not doing Mammograms.

    Maybe you should just leave that to the Ladies who know what a Mammogram is. Try squeezing your nether parts into that machine that squeezes them almost flat. Then you can discuss. I will be waiting.

    I also do not want a wand stuck up my,well,whatever.

    Be sure and read my latest post. And maybe you could post my advice to Rich Lowery. His analogy is stupid and so,apparently is the one who posted his ignorant words.

    While PP doesn't do actual mammograms, they do breast examinations. Stay with me here, you'll get it. Doing a breast examination means that they screen for breast cancer. If it is found that a patient has a suspicious lump(s), she will be referred for a mammogram. This is why it is rated half true.

    The concept isn't that difficult. If one applies him/ herself, the idea can be understood.

    It would help if some of you would at least try to be unbiased when it comes to PP.
    Come on.. the world only comes in black and white.

    That means there will be another facet of a woman's life where they don't need male input and bullying. What will Mac do in his spare time?

So unless a women feels a lump, she's probably not going to go out of pocket for a breast exam, and by then it's usually too late. And that is where PP comes in. Those are the women they need their services for all the preventive care they provide. Especially the ones who are over 45 or with a known family member of breast cancer. They are at higher risk..
    Community Health Centers provide those services without our tax dollars and are more readily available than PP... Next!

    Also Doctors recommend that patients do self examination,and if you find a suspicious lump, notify your Doctor. That is what PP does.
    Ummm.... If a person can do the exam on their own why bother with PP? If a woman does it herself and then finds something suspicious wtf is PP gonna do? "Ayup! That's certainly suspicious! Go see your doctor!"
