The notorious fact-checking website Snopes rushed to the defense of Planned Parenthood following a report from Live Action released Wednesday, which exposed the fact that Planned Parenthood isn’t a primary provider of prenatal care as many organization supporters like to suggest.
In its exposé, Live Action called 97 Planned Parenthood clinics across the nation, posing as a customer and asking about prenatal care services. Only five clinics of those clinics stated they offered any form of prenatal care. In fact, most openly admitted that they specialize in “other options” (i.e., abortion) and therefore have no need to provide prenatal care services.
Despite this clear debunking of a common and consistently exaggerated Planned Parenthood myth, Snopes rated Live Action’s report as “mostly false.”
