Marjorie’s Media Pick of the Week: Rick Santorum

Senator and longtime pro-life advocate Rick Santorum went head to head with Whoopi Goldberg on The View this week, and did a great job countering her pro-abortion argument.

 

Sen. Santorum called for defunding Planned Parenthood, and instead reallocating their federal funding to comprehensive health centers that don’t provide abortions. Santorum also exposed a frequently repeated falsehood, adding:

“Planned Parenthood, for example, does not provide mammograms. Now, I know people say they do, but they don’t.”

Goldberg cut in, “Yeah, they do.”

Sen. Santorum corrected her, “In fact, Cecile Richards said yesterday in the hearing that, in fact, they do not. In fact,  there are no Planned Parenthoods that provide any mammogram services. They basically provide abortion, contraceptive, STDs, things – and pregnancy tests. That’s it. There are much more comprehensive women’s health care centers.”
