October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and pro-life group Live Action is taking to social media to debunk the myth that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms.

The video, called "Mammosham," shows Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards testifying before Congress that the organization is neither equipped nor licensed to provide mammograms.

The abortion giant and its supporters, including President Barack Obama, have argued that taking away federal funding would limit women's health care services.

Live Action President Lila Rose spoke with CBN about the mammogram myth. Click play to watch her debunk this and other Planned Parenthood misconceptions.

"There are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care, they rely on it for mammograms," Obama said in 2012. 

The video shows Richards making the same claim in 2011.

"Millions of women in this country are gonna lose their healthcare access -– not to abortion services –- to basic family planning, you know, mammograms."

Richards has since changed her tune.

"We do not have mammogram machines at our health centers. We've never stated that we did," she said before Congress.

In its call to action to defund the organization, the video re-iterates that Planned Parenthood is making false claims about the services it provides.

So far the video has a whopping 2.6 million views.
