Does Planned Parenthood Perform Mammograms?
NOLA Needs Peace Coalition Awareness Week
Yesterday, our staff at Louisiana Right to Life received an email that we found remarkable:
Email Subject: "Your Yard Signs Are All Over My Neighborhood"
Email Message: "Do you have any signs that say, "More Planned Parenthood = more mammograms?"
First, we are so glad to hear that our signs all over this man's neighborhood. That is the idea! Second, this man clearly is a Planned Parenthood (PP) supporter trying to cleverly remind us that PP offers services other than abortion.
But the problem is... Planned Parenthood does NOT perform mammograms!
The widespread myth of Planned Parenthood and mammograms was solidly debunked by Live Action in 2011.
PP will not perform mammograms on Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans.
But the larger issue here deals with PP's other services. While PP does provide services other than abortion, these health care services are readily available
in the New Orleans area.
In fact, you can check out a detailed list of these services at www.NolaNeedsPeace.com/Services.
We are working to ensure these services are better promoted.
Planned Parenthood has never performed abortions at its current New Orleans or Baton Rouge facility. But as we learned from Abby Johnson, PP is pushing all its affiliates to offer abortion in its facilities.
Is Planned Parenthood building a facility on Claiborne Avenue simply to do more of the same services it offered on Magazine Street?
No. We believe a main reason for the new facility is so PP can get a share of the New Orleans abortion business. This is not the future New Orleans needs!
For a Peaceful New Orleans,
Benjamin Clapper and the NOLA Needs Peace Coalition Team
