Chuck Todd falsely claims Planned Parenthood performs mammograms

On Meet the Press, Chuck Todd helped perpetuate the myth that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms during his interview with GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. Todd said “Democrats will say the money they give to Planned Parenthood does not go to abortions. That the money they give to Planned Parenthood only goes to other women’s health issues including mammograms and things like that.”

Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms and their own FAQ on the matter makes that clear.

Even the Washington Post says “the myth that Planned Parenthood actually offers mammogram X-rays to patients has been long debunked, and needs to stop being repeated . . . When Democratic lawmakers or other supporters assert that Planned Parenthood ‘provides’ mammograms, this is highly misleading.”

Transcript via Newsbusters:

CHUCK TODD: Now let’s move to Planned Parenthood. You defended the other work Planned Parenthood does.

DONALD TRUMP: That’s right. I do.

TODD: Now you said you’d defund it.

TRUMP: That’s right, I would.

TODD: Democrats will say the money they give to Planned Parenthood does not go to abortions. That the money they give to Planned Parenthood only goes to other women’s health issues including mammograms and things like that. (Emphasis added, The Dispatch)
