Apparently a House of Representatives hearing is going on and the "guest" is none other than Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

According to "reports", she claims that PP doesn't do mammograms.

And, according to reports on TWITCHY, 86% of PP's revenues are from abortions.

Can't confirm yet, but the hearings are live and transcripts will be up soon I think.

Mammograms debunked: Cecile Richards admits that 86% of Planned Parenthood’s revenue is from abortions


There was just a great moment at the House hearing gong on right now where Cecile Richards was forced to admit under questioning from Rep. Cynthia Lummins (R, WY) that although abortions only account for 3% of Planned Parenthood’s total procedures, abortions account for 86% of Planned Parenthood’s revenues: Abortions 86% of revenue, 3% of services. Lummins asks @CecileRichards to explain this disparity. — Amy Curtis (@moderncomments) September 29, 2015 Lummis: Abortions…would have been over 86% of non govt revenue…how do you explain this massive disparity — F.

How much does it cost to perform abortions?


Nationwide, it can cost up to $1,500 for abortion in the first trimester, but it's often less. The cost is usually more for a second-trimester abortion. Costs vary depending on how long you've been pregnant and where you go. Hospitals generally cost more.

Shouldn't you add that it is 86% of non government funding?

Since abortions are not paid for by the gov but by out of pocket and are expensive would it not make sense they that number would be high since they don't really charge you for much else?

If anyone is interested the interview starts at about 50 min on the stream, and not really much a of a question and answer, Lummins doesn't really let her answer.

Better source then what seems to just be tweets about it.

Ya when it is spun it is very interesting, that 86 isn't the % of their total revenue.

For somebody making 600k a year she sure don't know how to deflect hard questions. Maybe she should rub elbows with more politicians, they have that skill mastered.

Not for me to speculate.

I have no idea what she said.

But maybe "revenues" and "funding" are two separate apples?

I do find it odd that this comes out under oath.

I'm waiting for the actual transcripts.

Did you watch the interview?

Because if you did then you don't have to speculate....

Cool, so make a thread about something that you haven't even listened to yet.

Why did you even link the stream then?
Go to the 50 min mark and watch it.

Is there any credible sources for their tax return ledgers?

Maybe the sauce is inside that meatloaf.

I had the hearings on the background and I could have sworn she said none of the locations had mammogram machines. Is this correct and was that a subject that was being cited earlier?

Because it is easier to sensationalize first then fact check later.

Can already see people don't care about the facts here, starting with the OP.

People just eating up the misleading title and going with it.

She didn't try to dodge them, she just didn't get a chance to answer them until Lummins's time was up

thats correct, most of those procedures that all the cheerleaders say will go away, are actually outsourced to other facilities that are NOT PP

Where all the "lets not care about how much she makes" people?

Or keep your nose out of her pockets and not care?

Hard to use a double standard to prove a double standard.

I would say that is to much btw.
