The Democrats have been parading out starlets like Eva Longoria, Scarlett Johanson and Kerry Washington to scare women into thinking that Mitt Romney would put an end to cancer screenings for women. It’s a load of bunk and they know it, but they’ll do anything to keep their favorite celebrity in the White House. If they were honest, they would admit that it’s the policies of President Obama that will limit cancer screenings.
Michelle Malkin has the facts, and advises women to “vote with their lady smarts” not their lady parts.
In June 2012, the Obama Health and Human Services Department responded to a request for information about how many Planned Parenthood clinics were certified to operate mammogram facilities.“Our search did not find any documents pertinent to your request,”HHS told the Alliance Defense Fund.
Got that? Fraudulent Hollywood harridans and their hero in the White House have been deliberately deceiving women into thinking that eliminating Planned Parenthood subsidies would mean a catastrophic end to affordable cancer screening services. But the abortion provider’s purported “referral services” to outside mammogram facilities are negligible — especially given the widespread availability of free and low-cost breast and cervical cancer screening services across the country supported by both private and public grants.
Wait, that’s not all. In the real world, it’s the Obama administration, not Republicans, who have actively presided over and promoted a drop in cancer screenings for both men and women over the past four years. You can thank Democratic crusaders for health care rationing in the White House. They want all the glory of championing socialized medicine, but cut and run from the consequences at election time.
Under Obamacare, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) will be empowered to determine which health care services are “medically appropriate.” For nearly three decades, the federal panel of primary care physicians and epidemiologists has issued nonbinding guidelines and A-F ratings of recommended medical procedures. But as Forbes columnist Dr. Paul Hsieh explains….
Read the whole thing and spread the word.
Speaking of Eva Longoria, she’s a real class act, that one. Well, not really.
