Cecile Richards lies to Congress: Claims she never said Planned Parenthood has mammogram machines

Testifying before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Tuesday, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards claimed that she has never said her organization has mammogram machines.

"An affiliate isn't a health center. I think I spoke earlier, we do not have mammogram machines at our health centers. And we've never stated that we did.

"As was mentioned earlier, for women who who go for a breast exam, if you need a mammogram, your referred to a radiological clinic," Richards said in response to a question from Rep. Mia Love (R-UT)

However, Richards said during a 2011 interview on CNN that if federal funding is cut off to Planned Parenthood "millions of women are going to lose access, not to abortion services, to basic family planning, you know, mammograms"
