As Congress debates defunding Planned Parenthood, the liberals on ABC’s The View disagreed with some of the hard truths.
Rick Santorum: Planned Parenthood, for example, doesn’t provide mammograms. I know they say they do, but they don’t. In fact…
Whoopi Goldberg: Yeah they do.
Santorum: No, Cecille Richards yesterday at the hearing said, in fact, they do not. In fact there are no, there are no Planned Parenthoods that provide any mammogram services.
Santorum said he would like to see every dollar that goes to Planned Parenthood reallocated to more comprehensive women’s health centers.
I’m for reallocating every dollar that goes to Planned Parenthood and put them in women’s health centers that actually provide more comprehensive services than Planned Parenthood does.
One of the hosts was concerned about what would happen when the nation’s most prolific baby butchers were no longer funded.
Paula Faris: So you’re saying if you reallocate all of that money away from Planned Parenthood to these clinics, will those clinics then provide abortions or where do you want these displaced women to go?
Santorum: Yeah, well, there are obviously, Planned Parenthood is one abortion provider in the country. There are others that provide abortions.
Santorum had to explain what few services Planned Parenthood does.
Santorum: They basically provide abortion, contraception, STD’s and…
Host: Morning after pill.
Santorum: …pregnancy tests. That’s it. If you said we were going to take the Planned Parenthood money, reallocate it to, actually clinics that do provide a whole host of other women’s health services, women are probably going to get a more holistic health screening at those places than they would at Planned Parenthood.
