Planned Parenthood Increasingly Providing More Transgender Services

In addition to offering abortion-on-demand, the far-left abortion clinic Planned Parenthood has also begun offering pro-transgender treatments at its clinics, making even more money off of the abuse of children.

As the Daily Caller reports, while Planned Parenthood first began offering hormone treatments back in 2005, the amount of transgender services provided by the organization has increased by about 125% over the last three years as transgenderism has become more mainstream. As of 2022, 41 out of 49 regional branches have offered some form of transgender treatment.

In 2022, all regional branches of Planned Parenthood combined saw about 38,337 visits related to transgender treatment; in 2020, the annual number was 17,036.

“You have to be concerned about the fact that there’s always money involved, for sure,” said Michael Artigues, president of the American College of Pediatricians. “And you’ve got to question whether or not they’re discerning if someone, in particular minors, have a legitimate condition that requires treatment like gender-affirming therapies, as opposed to a social phenomena and or simply mental health problems.”

The exact data on transgender visits was published by several regional branches of Planned Parenthood, as the national organization does not release such data; the information known thus far was gathered from 12 of the 41 regional branches releasing various reports over the last three years. One such region, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte – which is located in California and Nevada – saw 9,288 transgender-related visits in 2023, up from 4,378 visits in 2022 and 1,041 in 2020. Another region, Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette – which is located in Oregon – recorded 4,129 visits in 2021-2022, compared to 1,066 in 2020-2021, 533 in 2019-2020, and just 344 visits in 2018-2019.

In addition to the rising social trend of transgenderism, which has led many healthy boys and girls to suddenly and irrationally believe that they are of the opposite gender, there is also significant profit to be made in the selling of hormones, genital mutilation surgery, and other procedures that are described as “affirming” transgender delusions. A study by Grand View Research determined that the transgender treatment market was worth over $5 billion in 2023. Planned Parenthood’s Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley branch estimates that just one visit costs $262, with follow-up visits costing $202.

But, even if some children ultimately get through their “transgender” phase and realize there was never anything wrong with their bodies, they may become permanently hooked on such hormone treatments for the rest of their lives.

“It doesn’t matter if they decide to transition or stay trans or whatever,” said Scott Newgent, himself a de-transitioned man and founder of TReVoices, an anti-transgender advocacy group. “They’re going to need those synthetic hormones for life. That’s a huge business model.”
