Dear Miss Tennessee, Planned Parenthood doesn’t do mammograms

A Miss America contestant at the pageant is drawing criticism for defending taxpayer funding of the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood. The contestant also claimed the abortion company offers mammograms for women, which is not true.

The abortion company has been in the news over the last two months after a series of Center for Medical Progress videos caught it selling aborted baby parts and prompted millions of Americans to call on de-funding Planned Parenthood, Hannah Robison, Miss Tennessee 2015, defended funding the abortion business at last night’s contest.

Venessa Williams asked Robison the question.

“Hello, take a breadth this is a tough one,” Williams said. “Some federal legislatures are threatening to shut down the government over federal contributions to Planned Parenthood. Even though no federal funds can be used for abortions. Should Planned Parenthood funding be cut off?”

Robison replied: “I don’t think Planned Parenthood funding should be cut off. The $500 million dollars that gets given to Planned Parenthood every single year goes to female care. It goes for scanning for cancer. It goes for mammograms. And, if we don’t get that funding to Planned Parenthood those women will be out of health care for reproductive causes.”

A spokesperson for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America stated that the organization “does not provide mammograms at any of its health centers.” Since such facilities must be licensed by the Food and Drug Administration, no PPFA facility can legally perform a mammogram.

In fact, the Federalist reports that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration lists 8,735 licensed mammography facilities in America on their website but Planned Parenthood operates none of them. To view their list by clicking here.

The House of Representatives will vote next week on legislation to de-fund the Planned Parenthood in The Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 (H.R. 3134).
