Santorum Shuts Down Whoopi’s Planned Parenthood Misconceptions [VIDEO]

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum corrected Whoopi Goldberg’s misconception that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms as one of their services, on Wednesday’s “The View.” (RELATED: Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards: Well, OK, No, We Don’t Perform Mammograms)

“I’m for reallocating every dollar that goes to Planned Parenthood and put them in women’s health centers that actually provide more comprehensive services than Planned Parenthood does,” Santorum said. “Planned Parenthood, for example, doesn’t provide mammograms.”

Goldberg tried to correct Santorum, but he insisted, “No, Cecile Richards yesterday at the hearing said, in fact they do not. In fact, there are no Planned Parenthoods that provide any mammogram services. They basically provide abortion, contraception, STDs and pregnancy tests. That’s it.” (RELATED: Jim Jordan Unloads On Planned Parenthood President)

Santorum suggested reallocating the federal funding Planned Parenthood receives to go to “clinics that provide a whole host of other women’s health services. Women are probably going to get a more holistic health screening at those places than they would at Planned Parenthood.”

In light of the federal funding Planned Parenthood receives, Santorum admitted “the money that we’re reallocating has nothing to do with abortion.”

Santorum argued the removing federal funds for Planned Parenthood “shouldn’t affect abortions unless of course, they are commingling funds. And that’s one of the questions that people have.”
