There was just a great moment at the House hearing going on right now where Cecile Richards was forced to admit under questioning from Rep. Cynthia Lummins (R, WY) that although abortions only account for 3% of Planned Parenthood’s total procedures, abortions account for 86% of Planned Parenthood’s revenues:
Abortions 86% of revenue, 3% of services. Lummins asks @CecileRichards to explain this disparity.

Lummis: Abortions…would have been over 86% of non govt revenue…how do you explain this massive disparity

Lummis asks about 3% abortion figure. That's the % of services that abortion makes up for PP. #StandWithPP

Rep. Lummins also got Richards to admit that Planned Parenthood doesn’t do mammograms:

Q for Richards from Rep. Lummis: How many PP clinics have mammogram machines? Richards says none of them have mammogram machines.

Cecile Richards admits no Planned Parenthood clinics have any mammogram machines on site. As we already knew: http://t.co/vKcsceW14u
