Birther-freeptard Lie #4,562: Obama doesn't want women to have pap smears
A friend of mine was talking with her aunt and was told that Obama "now wants to take away pap smears for women". Her aunt watches Fox NotNews and listens to drug-addled gasbag Rush Limpole on a daily basis. So my friend asked me what the hell that was about... I was stumped.

So I looked and wow, this is just the latest in an absolutely satanic attempt at trying to demonize Obama for something he has absolutely nothing to do with. It's that simple. These mother fuckers are hellbent on lying through their teeth at every moment to try to give people the wrong impression or to put fear in their heads.

Here's a source:

The guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists or ACOG now say women younger than 30 should undergo cervical cancer screening once every two years instead of an annual exam. And those age 30 and older can be screened once every three years.

The recommendations are based on scientific evidence that suggests more frequent testing leads to overtreatment, which can harm a young woman's chances of carrying a child full term.

"Overtreatment of minor abnormal pap tests in young women and adolescents can lead to consequences such as preterm labor in some cases. It increases the risk," said Dr. Thomas Herzog of Columbia University in New York, who is chairman of an ACOG subcommittee on gynecologic cancers.

So is the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists the Obama administration? From their site:

The American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians & Gynecologists is dedicated exclusively to women's health care. The ACOOG traces its origins to 1934 when a group of practicing obstetricians in the osteopathic profession met in Wichita, Kansas and formed an association. A D.O.-OB/GYN is committed to the physical, mental and emotional health of women.

So I hunted around a bit on various right-wing blogs after seeing that Fox News was trying to make this somehow how "ObamaCare" will take your benefits away.

Here's one sample from the filthy liars:

Hey gals, now Obama says you don't need PAP smears

Earleir this week the "independant" council picked by the Obama administration stated that women didn't need to do breast self-exams. Now they're saying you don't need to check for cervical cancer either.

Isn't that great, babes? Just shut yer trap and get me a sammich!

Don't think that the boys are left out though.

Next week?

I'm betting that guys won't have to worry about prostate cancer anymore.

See kids?

Obama's been in office about a year and he took care of cervical cancer, breast cancer. Who knows what he'll "cure" next week!

There were several other right-wing sites (with photos of Obama and the word "socialist") that mimicked the same nonsense.

So I Googled to see if Rush Limpole was wankering on the topic and he was on 11/20/09. However, in order to see his claptrap, you have to be a member. No thanks.
