In a virtually ignored development, Planned Parenthood has found another way to make a buck on the backs of mostly impressionable young people.
On top of its massive abortion industry, and the more recent discovery that it was selling baby parts, the nation’s largest abortion provider is now offering transgender hormone therapy for women who want to become men and men who want to become women.
Planned Parenthood’s abortion business model is threatened as the U.S. abortion rate continues to decline, new regulations are put in place on the horrific and unpopular practice of late-term abortions and the American public becomes more inclined towards curtailing abortions as science reveals more of what is going on in the womb.
Further, there is substantial momentum toward defunding Planned Parenthood at the federal level, which would be another blow to the abortion giant’s revenue stream. Congress can’t quite get its act together on this, but the Trump Administration is actively helping states in the fight for unborn babies. The Health and Human Services administration, working with the Alliance Defending Freedom legal team, is telling states they no longer have to comply with Obama regulations that threw up roadblocks for states trying to exclude Planned Parenthood from their state Medicaid programs.
Declining abortions and reducing tax funding is putting a crimp in Planned Parenthood’s money flowing style. So it is not surprising that the organization turned to transgender hormone — or sex change — treatments in 2016. But it is quickly going for the younger, more impressionable teens who are in vulnerable years of life.
Until literally the last few years, gender dysphoria was understood to be a psychological disorder, and very treatable. Importantly, most young people who experience this condition of gender confusion outgrow it as adults and no longer suffer from the dysphoria. Somewhere between 75 percent and 95 percent of children experiencing gender dysphoria will outgrow it as adults. The majority grow up to be gay adults. The minority are traditional adults.
But the LGBTQ activist community continues to undermine every scientific reality with its powerful political machine and a sympathetic media. Just off their successful dissolution of marriage as being between one man and one woman, the LGBTQ activists immediately turned to mucking up the differences between the two sexes. Boys can be girls and girls can be boys, whatever they feel like, science and biology and known reality be damned.
One of the earliest Planned Parenthood groups to begin selling hormone therapy drugs is based in Sarasota, Florida, where it is now dishing out the irreversible body-altering drugs to about 250 people on a regular basis. The Guardian newspaper reported that “Planned Parenthood is one of the largest sources in the U.S. of transgender healthcare.”
And now, it will be “offering” its drugs for sale to minors with parental consent. But anyone paying attention knows that the parental consent portion will be under attack almost instantly.
This is abominable considering most of these minors will outgrow their gender confusion as adults, but with these drugs, they will be unalterably changed. Many of their lives will be severely degraded because of the drug regiment they chose to buy from Planned Parenthood as teens. But the LGBTQ community will further its destructive agenda and Planned Parenthood will play its part while making its millions.
Most transgender hormone treatment clinics require a therapist’s letter for giving out the irreversible, body-altering drugs — providing some tiny level of protection from compulsive acts — something teens are famous for. But Planned Parenthood does not. In fact, all the group’s policy requires is to simply inform confused young people of the risks of treatment. The patient signs the form, the treatments begin, and the money flows in.
The hormonal ‘sex-change’ treatments are not supposed to be funded by tax dollars, but they are when it is deemed “medically necessary,” according to the National Center for Transgender Equality.
Thus a brand new revenue stream is spawned for Planned Parenthood, and more lives will be unnecessarily devastated.
