Komen Foundation Gives Mobile Mammogram Grant

by CitizenLink Team

Susan G. Komen for the Cure has awarded a $21,430 grant for a mobile mammography unit that will provide screenings at three Planned Parenthood Arizona offices, a move that underscores the fact the abortion business does not provide mammograms at its clinics.

Randall O’Bannon, director of education and research for the National Right to Life Committee, cautioned people that Planned Parenthood may use the mobile clinics to claim that now it does perform mammograms.

The mobile unit is expected to provide 120 mammograms to women at Planned Parenthood sites in Scottsdale, Chandler and the northeast Phoenix.

Though the grant was awarded in mid-April, it remains unclear from media reports or the Komen Foundation or Planned Parenthood websites what entity owns or will operate the mobile unit. Interview requests sent to Beverly Kruse, executive director of the Komen Arizona affiliate, as well as the Arizona Department of Health Services, were not returned before CitizenLink went to press

However, “it’s nice to know that Planned Parenthood has finally gotten around to offering mammograms to a handful of poor women in the Phoenix area,” O’Bannon, said.  “They’ve been doing abortions there for a number of years.”
