Planned Parenthood has entered into the hormone therapy business. There is a new growth industry, turning little boys into little girls and vice versa.
Hormone therapy is not new. What is new is using it to change a person’s gender identity artificially.
Women have for decades practiced menopausal hormone therapy. According to the National Cancer Institute (NIH):
Menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) is a treatment that doctors may recommend to relieve common symptoms of menopause and to address long-term biological changes, such as bone loss, that result from declining levels of the natural hormones estrogen and progesterone in a woman’s body during and after the completion of menopause.
The NIH website sites two major studies on the positive and negative effects of hormone therapy. According to the NIH the most comprehensive evidence about risks and benefits of MHT comes from two randomized clinical trials that were sponsored by the National Institutes of Health as part of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI):
- The WHI Estrogen-plus-Progestin Study, in which women with a uterus were randomly assigned to receive either a hormone medication containing both estrogen and progestin (Prempro™) or a placebo.
- The WHI Estrogen-Alone Study, in which women without a uterus were randomly assigned to receive either a hormone medication containing estrogen alone (Premarin™) or a placebo.
Women’s Health Initiative notes, “More than 27,000 healthy women who were 50 to 79 years of age at the time of enrollment took part in the two trials. Although both trials were stopped early (in 2002 and 2004, respectively) when it was determined that both types of therapy were associated with specific health risks, longer-term follow-up of the participants continues to provide new information about the health effects of MHT.”
The positives for women are:
- One-third fewer hip and vertebral fractures than women taking the placebo. In absolute terms, this meant 10 fractures per 10,000 women per year who took hormone therapy compared with 15 fractures per 10,000 women per year who took the placebo (1).
- One-third lower risk of colorectal cancer than women taking the placebo. In absolute terms, this meant 10 cases of colorectal cancer per 10,000 women per year who took hormone therapy compared with 16 cases of colorectal cancer per 10,000 women per year who took the placebo (1).
The negatives for women are:
- Urinary incontinence. Use of estrogen plus progestin increased the risk of urinary incontinence (1).
- Dementia. Use of estrogen plus progestin doubled the risk of developing dementia among postmenopausal women age 65 and older (5).
- Stroke, blood clots, and heart attack. Women who took either combined hormone therapy or estrogen alone had an increased risk of stroke, blood clots, and heart attack (1, 3). For women in both groups, however, this risk returned to normal levels after they stopped taking the medication (2, 4).
- Breast cancer. Women who took estrogen plus progestin were more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer (6). The breast cancers in these women were larger and more likely to have spread to the lymph nodes by the time they were diagnosed (6). The number of breast cancers in this group of women increased with the length of time that they took the hormones and decreased after they stopped taking the hormones (7).
For little boy wanting to become little girls the risks far outweigh any benefits.
Little boys don’t have breasts and their bodies are not like that of a female. So the positives of these two studies do not apply to boys. However, using hormone therapy on boys, according to these two studies, will lead to dementia, stroke, blood clots, urinary incontinence and heart attack.
The SottoPelle website warns:
Large scientific studies conducted over the past two decades overwhelmingly show that synthetic and animal-derived hormone substitutes are dangerous and risky. Warning labels on these drugs make that abundantly clear. Their molecular formulas differ from hormones made in the human body, making them patentable but incapable of communicating with many receptor cells needed to carry out important work throughout the body.
Pick your poison as the saying goes.
