Planned Parenthood now offers sex change services for transgenders in bid to earn more money

Planned Parenthood is now offering to help transgenders undergo a sex-change process to provide additional revenues for the abortion service provider.

Fox News reports that in the wake of the undercover videos that purportedly showed Planned Parenthood officials selling baby parts, the organisation has stopped accepting reimbursements for providing foetal parts to researchers although it denied any wrongdoing.

The sex-change service may make up for the lost cash, the report says.

"Whether you're transgender or cisgender, you can visit your local Planned Parenthood health center for STD testing, birth control, physical exams, other sexual and reproductive health services, and referrals," Planned Parenthood's website reads.

"Some Planned Parenthood health centres are able to offer hormone treatments for trans people," it adds.

Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council said the backlash may come "from clients who recognise this was not in their best interest."

The Mar Monte Planned Parenthood website says it only needs prospective patients to give "consent for services" although the Standards of Care manual designed by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health provides that anyone seeking sex change should be examined by a health professional to "assess clients' gender dysphoria."

There are 32 Planned Parenthood clinics in 10 states – California, Colorado, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, Vermont and Washington – that provide hormone treatments.

For younger patients, Planned Parenthood needs a parent's permission.

"I'm concerned about young people. We're seeing an increasing trend with minors, children being given puberty-blocking hormones to prevent them from going through the typical process of puberty in order to make it easier for them to transition to the opposite sex," said Sprigg.

The abortion provider currently offers only hormone therapy, which costs about $1,500 per year, but does not engage in sex change surgery.

Sprigg said Planned Parenthood has now become a "central clearing house for the sexual revolution in all respects."
