As Planned Parenthood Abortions Decline and Clinics Close, They Enter Transgender-Hormone Market
As dozens of Planned Parenthood clinics close because of a dwindling U.S. abortion rate, the company has moved to diversify by getting into transgender hormone therapy.
This is proof that the name ‘Planned Parenthood’ never had anything to do with parenthood. Should we call it ‘Planned Transgenderhood’ now?
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.”
Planned Parenthood’s “abortion empire” is a “house of cards” that is falling apart.
Planned Parenthood has seen a 20 percent decrease in abortions from 2010. In fact, things are going so bad for Planned Parenthood that Cecile Richards is stepping down as the president after more than a decade at the head of the nation’s largest abortion provider.
Planned Parenthood’s health care centers and clinics performed 321,384 abortions last year, down from 328,348 in 2016, which represented an increase from 323,999 in 2015.
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.
Planned Parenthood has lost a whopping $43.4 million in assets, including properties. They have closed at least 33 clinics, most recently the Dec. 29 closure of a clinic in Iowa’s Quad Cities region.
Planned Parenthood depends on government health care services grants and reimbursements for roughly half of its income. Last year, that figure was $543.7 million, down from the $554.6 million collected in 2016, which could be attributed to the decrease in patient visits.
Last year, Dave Daleiden and his California-based pro-life group the Center for Medical Progress released a series of videos showing Planned Parenthood officials engaging in assorted illegal activities, especially the sale of aborted baby body parts.
At a speech Saturday afternoon at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, DC, Daleiden spoke about the impact of his group’s undercover video campaign against Planned Parenthood.
“Since the videos were released, 26 states, more than half the country, have moved to strip Planned Parenthood of its taxpayer subsidies and reassign that money to full-spectrum, mainstream community health centers,” stated Daleiden.
YO! Planned Parenthood! My life began at conception, that is just a fact!
I was born in 1968 before Roe Vs Wade.
I was an unwanted pregnancy but I was adopted. Had I been aborted, it would not have just been an unwanted fetus.
A 49 year life that is a good friend to people in all 50 states.
A son, grandson, brother, cousin, nephew and most important, the best uncle in the world to three precious little girls…would have been aborted.
NO ONE had the right to take that away from me. Not my biological father, and definitely not the woman who gave birth to me.
No, they did not have that right to end my life!! Planned Parenthood did not have the right!
I have the right to do anything I want with my right hand. I can snap my finger. I can lead singing at church. I can shove food in my mouth!
But my right to what I can do with that right hand, which is my body, stops the moment my right hand socks someone in the face. At that point I don’t have the right to choose what I do with my body anymore because it steps on someone else’s rights!
A woman can do anything she wants with her body…until… what she does interferes with another life. An an unborn fetus is more than that. It represents, like me, a full life!
Is a woman free to use here eyes to look at child porn? NO? Why not? It impacts other’s lives.
Is a woman free to use her hand to start a fire in someone’s home? NO! Why not? Because it impacts the lives of others!
My LIFE began about 9 months before December 1968.
The left will take the origin of man back to an amoeba, but won’t take the origin of my life back to conception. What is wrong with that picture?
