Planned Parenthood Employee Warns Trans-Identifying Kids Are Being Claimed as “Cash Cows”
A Planned Parenthood employee is speaking out against the organization’s practices of dispensing cross-sex hormones to trans-identifying teenagers, particularly distressed girls.
The staffer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, recounted in an interview with journalist Abigail Shrier how she felt morally conflicted about the volume of young people coming into the clinic claiming a transgender identity and yet showed signs of emotional and mental health issues. She also expressed great concern over the speed at which they were being prescribed cross-sex hormones, such as testosterone.
The young clients were prescribed hormones with almost no examination of their underlying problems, and medical oversight was practically nonexistent, the staffer alleged.
The Planned Parenthood employee, who said she’s fully supportive of abortion rights, noted that abortions were the “bread and butter” for clinics. But now, she said, “trans-identifying kids are cash cows, and they are kept on the hook for the foreseeable future in terms of follow-up appointments, bloodwork, meetings, etc., whereas abortions are (hopefully) a one-and-done situation.”
“The culture of death’s chief proponent, Planned Parenthood, has no problem putting profits over people,” said Mary Szoch, director of the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council, in an email to the Christian Post.
“For years, they have exploited women and killed unborn babies for the sake of making money. They have denied the scientific fact that abortion takes the life of an unborn child. And so, it shouldn’t shock anyone that once again, Planned Parenthood is willing to put profits over people.”
“Planned Parenthood began as a eugenic, profits-driven organization that exploited the vulnerable. Their current status as one of the largest providers of cross-sex hormones to females seeking medical gender transition is simply proof that their mission to spread the culture of death hasn’t changed,” she reiterated.
When asked if the clinic staff ever expressed reservations about the manner in which hormones were being prescribed to girls and whether it was the best course of treatment for their issues, the Planned Parenthood staffer replied: “Yeah. Every day.”
Under Planned Parenthood’s informed consent model, all that is required for patients who come into their locations is for them to sign a document saying that they understand the risks. Planned Parenthood is thus not considered legally liable for any harmful and lasting effects. With one exception, she reported never seeing anyone being denied access to cross-sex hormones.
