:Sigh:
I said 98% OF THE PREGNANT WOMEN who walk into PP get an abortion.
I've already presented evidence that 10% of clients visiting Planned Parenthood get abortions.
Follow the conversation.
You're tiring.
No, you're right pregnant. My apologies.

I understand the difference between Communion and transubstantiation.

Transubstantiation is anti-Bible. I'd go as far as saying it's anti-Christ.

No matter what I show you, you're not going to look at it objectively. I've been down this road with a few others, over the years.

I ended my post with my point: Planned Parenthood lies when begging not to have fed funds revoked...."we give mammograms"....but, they don't provide mammograms.
Mammograms are not one of the "services" it provides.
You understood my point so clearly that it caused you to go into a rant. "My doctor blah blah blah..."
You're welcome....
You know, I've watched the video where they supposedly lied about doing mammos, and that's not what was said. What was ACTUALLY said, is that the do breast cancer screening. And they do. Breast exams ARE breast cancer screening. They are the first screening done on any woman in any woman's clinic, or OB/GYN.

Yes, I knew where you were going with that, hence my refutation. I've never had an OB/GYN who did mammos at their office, just the first line of defense, breast exams. I've always been referred out to a hospital, or imaging center for a mammo.

I correctly stated that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms.
Now.
What were you bloviating about?
I think they refer women to where they can get a mammogram for free or low cost.

PP also offers men's health services --

checkups when you have a reproductive/sexual health problem
jock itch — exam and treatment
male infertility — screening and referrals
urinary tract infections — testing and treatment

Some even offer vasectomy.

10% of Planned Parenthood clients receive abortion. As I've already mentioned, PP "BUNDLES" services intentionally to skew the numbers.
Liberal NPR ate crow over this issue:
"Conan: Finally, several of you wrote during yesterday’s show about PP, about the conflict over what percentage of the agency’s clients receive abortions. We’ve asked NPR’s healh policy correspondent Julie Rovner to join us again. Julie, always nice to have with you us.… And we heard two figures from opposing sides yesterday, 3% and 10%, who’s right?
Rovner: Well, the conflict is really that PP keeps its statistics according to the percent of those services that are provided, not according to how many people get what. So it turns out that there are – that indeed, abortions are 3% of the services provided, although – and that was what, I think, Sarah Stoesz from PP kind of MISSPOKE when she said it was 3% of patients who come in get abortions.
It is actually a little bit closer to the 10% that Marjorie Dannenfesler suggested, because there are about 3 million patients who come in. There are about 300,000 abortions provided."
http://www.jillstanek.com/2011/03/npr-fact-ch...
OMG, patients get multiple services from a health provider!

The numbers are quite simple, in 2011, 3% of the services were for abortions. No one is in dispute about that, right?

Now you can go back to calling them abortion mills, you wacko-loons.

I know a few women who knew or thought they were pregnant and were referred to PP. They said PP gives them a pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy, even if she's already done that. All the women I know decided to carry to term. They are low-income folks. PP gave them the documentation which confirmed pregnancy, and gave them a list of pre-natal providers and referred them to Social Services for MediCal.

That was the extent of their dealings with PP.

Oh, and I guess the PP counselor asked them a few questions, including "do you feel safe with the father?".

I don't see any harm in their services.

These absolute idiots. Here's a newsflash for you Morons (No Relevance, Witless, StupidBlue) your assumption that 100% of all women who walk into a PP clinic are PREGNANT just makes you look like asses. Almost half of PP clinics don't even PERFORM abortions.
Don't believe I ever said that or implied that. Your imagination is running away with you.

Health Departments provide the same services.

Neither do I.

These people don't know how percentages work. OR "bundling" for that matter.

It's sad.

The implication is that for every 100 women who walk into PP, only three receive abortions. Which means that 210 million women would have to walk through the doors to account for the 3 hundred thousand abortions performed. Breast exams might be construed as mammograms because you can do breast exams yourself.

Many abosilutely do not believe in the infallibility of the Pope. Actually, I haven't met a Catholic in real life that does. Just those here on topix.

That is not the implication. They are not counting patients, they are counting services rendered. They are not pretending each service corresponds to one person walking in the door.

When you go to the doctor, and they perform an exam, do a Strep test, give you a shot, have they only provided ONE service for you, when they have to code each and every thing they do for their accounting? No, you've had ONE doctor's visit with multiple services rendered.

When you go to the grocery store and purchase chicken, a roast beef, an onion, a cucumber, milk, and a loaf of bread, have you bought ONE item? Or have you made ONE trip to the store, and purchased SIX items?
