WaPo fact checks Schumer’s claim that millions of women use Planned Parenthood for mammograms – TheBlaze

Quote:
Schumer tweeted Tuesday that the legislation, which he referred to as “Trumpcare,” cuts funds for Planned Parenthood, “hurting millions of women who turn there for mammograms, maternity care, cancer screenings [and] more.”
Quote:
Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms; the organization makes referrals for them.

The Post noted that, while some Planned Parenthood affiliates sometimes host “free mammography mobile vans” for low-income or uninsured women, no affiliates have mammogram machines in their clinics.

The Food and Drug Administration does not include any Planned Parenthood clinics on its list of certified mammography facilities. The FDA’s list, the Post notes, is updated weekly.
Quote:
The Post additionally called Schumer’s claim “problematic” because it “greatly exaggerates” the number of Planned Parenthood clientele seeking mammograms: “In 2014, the most recent data, it made about 11,000 referrals for mammograms — less than 1 percent of the total number of patients that Planned Parenthood served that year.”

The newspaper gave Schumer “three Pinocchios” for the claim. Read the Post’s full analysis here.

Yeah he goofed like we all do. Yanno 57 states and all.

I did find this interesting:

“other women’s health services” (1.2 million pregnancy tests and 17,419 prenatal services).
