Planned Parenthood recently put out an advertisement encouraging “transgender” children to take “puberty blockers” if they do not “identify” with how their body is changing as they grow.
“There’s no ‘one size fits all’ puberty experience. If you’re trans, intersex, or nonbinary, know that you’re not the only one feeling confused,” the video narrates.
Planned Parenthood then proceeds to explain to viewers that “for some intersex people, puberty may start later than the age of 14. You might experience some of puberty’s changes and not others. And your body may or may not go through puberty on its own.”
The abortion organization then says that certain “medicines” can help them “start the process” of altering their bodies to match which gender they “identify” with, such as “hormone replacement therapy.”
“Some people decide on hormones or surgeries to help their bodies match up to their gender identity, or how they feel inside about themselves. Your gender identity is real,” Planned Parenthood claims, adding that children should be the ones who “decide” if their genitals are to be surgically mutilated by a doctor and forever destroyed.
“If you’re transgender or nonbinary, you may find that your puberty experiences don’t line up with your gender identity, or how you see yourself,” the abortion institution claims. “That feeling can be uncomfortable, scary, and stressful. If that sounds like you, know that you’re not alone.”
Planned Parenthood then began advertising “puberty blockers” for developing children, drugs that “delay puberty” by working “like a stop sign by holding the hormones testosterone and estrogen that cause puberty changes like facial hair growth and periods.”
“Puberty blockers are safe and can give you more time to figure out what feels right for you, your body, and your gender identity. You don’t have to have all of the answers right now. So, remember, it’s all a work in progress. And it may take time to figure out what feels right to you.”
While advocates claim that the effects of puberty blockers are reversible, critics say this is a disingenuous claim and does not reflect reality.
Some critics say that, if growth of genitalia is stunted by puberty blockers over the course of years, then a child’s genitals will not continue to develop after ceasing the drug. Many have likened puberty blockers to chemical castration for this reason.
