Biden: Planned Parenthood 'Under Law Cannot Perform any Abortion'

Bzzzt.  Wrong answer Mr. Vice President.  The would be:

Planned Parenthood itself has claimed it committed 985,731 abortions in just the last three years alone.

In front of that crowd, Biden said, “And now these guys pledge that they are going to defund Planned Parenthood, which under law cannot perform any abortion” The fact is, though, .

There is no law at all that prevents Planned Parenthood from committing abortions whenever and whereever it likes.

There is a law that prevents PP from using Federal subsidies to pay for all the abortions, but good luck sorting out their general fund to figure out what came from where. The claim that they legally can't do something they are obviously doing is the flip side of previous statements saying Planned Parenthood does something that it does not.  The assertion that they perform  for example.

“There are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings,”  during the debate.

 goes on at length to talk about the referrals Planned Parenthood makes for women — referrals that women can obtain at any legitimate medical health provider that does not also destroy lives in abortions.


 Planned Parenthood does not actually do mammograms.

At the second presidential debate, President Obama said that women “rely on” Planned Parenthood for mammograms. Actually, mammograms are not performed at the clinics; Planned Parenthood doctors and nurses conduct breast exams and refer patients to other facilities for mammograms.

Obama said: “When Governor Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care. They rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings.” 

So, the reality is that they do hand out contraception, they do not perform mammograms, and they do perform abortions, likely funded by our tax dollars.
