Good morning to you too.
No I think they are technically accurate but intentionally misleading.
You think clinical breast exams are "technically accurate but intentionally misleading"?

Few give prenatal care.

Sorry, but we've all seen the video where PP supposedly "lied about doing mammograms". They did not. The woman said breast cancer screening. A clinical breast exam IS breast cancer screening. Period. There is nothing "misleading" there. PP clinics perform clinical breast exams and refer women out to places that perform free or low cost mammos, just like my OB/GYN does. Oh, except that my OB/GYN doesn't bother choosing a free or low cost place, as I have insurance. Unlike many women who go to PP clinics.

The desperation to whine about PP causes the kind of stupidity we saw yesterday, with Stupid Sassy saying that CBEs are "not cancer screening". As it caused the PLM to claim that PP lied about doing mammograms when they patently did not. Now THAT is "intentionally misleading".

Yes, I think to some that sounds like a mammogram. Why do you think the rate of metastasized beast cancer in young women has risen alarmingly?

The number doesn't matter. The fact that some do disproves your implication that the only reason a pregnant woman would have for going to a PP clinic is to have an abortion.

Not always. We have a cemetary where a special section called 'the innocents' is where stillborns and aborted babies are buried.

Only an idiot would assume that the phrase breast cancer screening ONLY meant mammograms when there are several such tests, and mammos aren't even done on women until they are 40 unless they fall into high risk categories.

If you are attempting to imply that the rate of metastasized breast cancer in young women is PP's fault because they don't do mammos, then it's YOU who is being "intentionally misleading".

Of course it does. If most of PPs don't do prenatal care and they don't then obviously the pregnant women aren't going they for a service that they don't offer. Use some common sense.

It amazes me that you think women who can't follow birth control in structions would know the difference between mammograms and breast screenings.

As far as your second paragraph, it is off the charts for stupidity.

Because if he is convicted of a crime against an unborn child, pcers will have a harder time declaring that the baby inutero isn't a child. You already have a problem with that Scott Peterson case.

YOU try to some honesty. YOU implied that the ONLY reason a pregnant woman would have to go to a PP clinic is to have abortion. Even if only ONE PP clinic provides prenatal care, and that is not the case, it disproves that implication.

I said nothing about women following birth control instructions, Strawman. My statement stands.

As for my second paragraph, if that wasn't your intention, please do tell us what WAS your point in bringing that up?

Both of your statements are incorrect. You obviously haven't been paying attention to the discussions.

Who says "most" dont offer it. From what I can see by clicking on their various state websites, MOST DO.

Nobody "has a problem with the case", since INTELLIGENT people understand that the WANTED viable fetus was within weeks, if not days of being born, and in fact - there's some question if it was born at the time of death as was testified to by the coroner. He couldn't state definitivly that Conner wasn't born when he was killed.

What a STUPID woman you are.

Here's a question. Why, when a CPC does pregnancy testing and only offers referrals for prenatal care, do they consider this "helping a woman keep her pregnancy", but when PP clinics do the same thing, it's not?
