A MSNBC guest on Monday claimed that Planned Parenthood, the country’s leading abortion provider, offers mammograms, but the cable channel did not even bother to correct the already disproved myth, according to The Daily Caller.
Journalist Tina Brown also told “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski that defunding Planned Parenthood will make it difficult for poor women who depend on their mammograms from the abortion giant.
Brown said that “hard-pressed women” will die of breast cancer if Planned Parenthood fails to receive the $500 million it receives annually and will go to other women’s clinics.
Brown is either misinformed or was just plainly not telling the truth to the audience. The fact is that Planned Parenthood does not offer mammograms. This was already addressed by the group’s president Cecile Richards who told the House Oversight Committee in 2015 that they don’t provide mammograms.
Still, none of the hosts or guests in that show attempted to correct Brown. Brzezinski even vocally agreed with Brown’s views.
