Planned Parenthood enters transgender-hormone market

Sex-change therapy offers an opportunity to develop a new client base as women continue to stay away in droves

As dozens of its clinics closed amid a dwindling U.S. abortion rate, Planned Parenthood has moved to diversify its business model by getting into transgender hormone therapy.

The 2016-17 Planned Parenthood annual report showed the nation’s largest abortion provider struggling to keep its doors open as fewer women undergo abortions and patients seek health care services elsewhere.

In response, “We’re expanding access to care — from pioneering research on self-injectable birth control to offering new services for our transgender patients,” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said in the report’s introductory message.

“Planned Parenthood has focused on expanding services to people who are too often overlooked by the larger medical community — including trans patients,” says the report, released Sunday. “17 states now have Planned Parenthood health centers that provide hormone therapy.”

Providing sex-change therapy may not be enough to reverse Planned Parenthood’s ongoing skid — a 2016 UCLA study found just 0.6 percent of the U.S. adult population identified as transgender — but it offers an opportunity to develop a new client base as women continue to stay away in droves.

  1. Planned Parenthood offers anything but “care”. I hope women continue to “stay away in droves.”

  2. St. Christopher says:

    Its just another product to Planned Parenthood. This is Satan at work, folks. He is gifted with the highest angelic intelligence and cunning. We are no match in these areas.

    Didn’t Jesus say something like, “without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5). Pray to Him to lead you in confronting PP, which is a truly evil institution. It does not matter if PP does something good for women here and there (although it is not much); it must be opposed and destroyed as a value-neutral choice for women. That is, we must work to produce the truth for all to see about what PP does to the soul, as well as the body.

  3. The Watchman says:

    Planned Parenthood has a bad plan. Stop funding Planned Parenthood! It is time for America to end abortion of unborn baby children. The abortions of the unborn are the greatest issue facing humanity today. Since Roe versus Wade made abortion legal in America in 1973 close to 60 Millions unborn baby children have been killed. It is time this senseless slaughter of the unborn is stopped or face the wrath and judgement of Almighty God. End abortion now! Adoption is loving option. Pray America Pray. Pray Pray Pray!
