Democrat California Gov Candidate Jerry Brown Said “Mammograms are not Effective”, REALLY?


When will California voters wake up, or is this state too far gone?

How exactly is NOW, any other female or any one who has been affected by breast cancer voting for this fool Jerry Brown. First Brown’s campaign called Republican rival Meg Whitman a “whore” and now Brown has stated that “mammograms are not effective.” NICE, I though Jerry Brown was pro-choice? How does NOW endorse a man who is against mammogram screening? Can you imagine the reaction from MOW and the MSM is a Republican made such comments? The liberal feminist hicocrissy continues.

You think the fact that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month that maybe, maybe California voters might catch a clue? How does one make such a comment and actually have female votes or endorsements?


The comment about mammograms came during an episode of “Firing Line” in October 1995, when Brown was a guest on the William F. Buckley Jr. show. He sat alongside feminist and commentator Susan Estrich during a discussion about government regulations that dealt with the death of the Clinton administration health reform proposal.

Estrich discussed the component of the plan that had dealt with mammograms. “Can we get off of mammograms?” Brown interjected. “I mean, first of all, if you read the Lancet Magazine in July, there’s no statistical evidence that mammograms help anyone at any age. “So it’s July 1995, Lancet Magazine. Okay? It’s there. Now I don’t want to argue that case,” he added, as Estrich started to object. “ I just want to throw it out there.”

This is the man that the National Organization of Woman is endorsing? A man who has stated in the past that mamograms are ineffective. Moonbeam Brown did not even want to allow the option for women to have one.

Former Delaware Gov. Pete du Pont interrupted, “But you ought to have the option — if you think they’re going to help you, if you think they’re going to help you, you ought to have the option of having one.”

Brown replied, “Ten thousand women, three women will be saved for one year.”

So you think that this is only about a comment made 15 years ago, do you? When Brown’s campaign  was asked about how he feels about mammograms now, his spokesman said the following. Death panels, indeed. Also, there gets to be no excuses from Brown’s campaign that the comment is 15 years old. Aptly stated by the Left Coast Liberal, it was perfectly fine for Democrats to pull up video 20+ years old of DE GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell.  Live by the sword …

Asked if he believes in mammography, Clifford said, “He believes in people not getting cancer, has not followed developments in the effectiveness of various specific cancer screenings.”

WHAT! As No Quarter stated, will California voters ever wake up and realize that “Moonbeam” Brown has no chance of saving the states from its pending financial bankruptcy? Let alone, Brown hardly seems user friendly to woman and breast cancer screening. Meg Whitman, pro-choice might I add, actually has a business background and an understanding of how to get California out of its financial perils.

It is unreal how a state could be so screwed up as to elect Jerry Brown to right the ship. Unreal indeed.

      My little sister, Mary, died from breast cancer after fighting it for 2 1/2 years. If ever you were to have a relative sick, please visit them before they die. I’m so thankful to GOD Almighty I was able to see Mary just 2 months before she died. We had a truly wonderful time. But then upon leaving, we both knew it would be the last time to see each other.

      Mary 9/12/1956 to 9/23/2004

      Mother, wife, Reg Nurse, Certified Nurse Practitioner, Flight Nurse.

      One never forgets.

      Jerry Brown is an idiot. It is time for those with a little brain power in California to send him home.

      Just out of curiosity, what sexual orientation is Jerry Brown?

      I’ve heard—yes, he is gay. I’ve heard no, he is not.

      Can someone tell me; is he a hen or a rooster, a lace up or a slip on.

      Just thought maybe poor old Jerry had the mamogram performed on his head. If so, it would definately have showed up nothing/empty :) Maybe that is his confusion?

      There are plenty of studies that show that although the Mammogram could/should be more effective than self-exams, the survivability rate is not statistically higher for cancers detected by mammogram vs. those detected by other means.

      Perhaps the studies are flawed…and very likely survivability is not the only measure to be looked at (quality of life is important too).
