It has long been established that not a single Planned Parenthood in the nation offers mammograms in their clinics. However, speculation has arisen as to whether Planned Parenthood of Waco, Texas is a mammogram-providing Planned Parenthood, because when you Google “Planned Parenthood mammograms,” the first link that appears is one for the affiliate of central Texas, which strongly implies its Waco clinic is a mammogram provider:
The newsletter that the Waco Planned Parenthood published in the summer of 2010 flat-out stated that “in 2009, [they] provided 487 mammograms” and that “[they] have provided 2,683 mammograms to low-income women” since 2001:
Planned Parenthood of Central Texas, which runs and operates Planned Parenthood of Waco, explicitly states that their affiliate provides mammography:
However, the official website for the Waco center itself does not list mammograms as a service they provide:
See why this is confusing people? Planned Parenthood outright claims they provide mammograms in their Waco facility… but it is well-established that no Planned Parenthood provides them.
A quick phone call cleared it all up. The verdict? Planned Parenthood of Waco, just like every other Planned Parenthood in the nation, only offers referrals for mammogram services. Once again, Planned Parenthood is blatantly lying about this service.
