Abortionist Planned Parenthood is the leading supplier of the hormone used for teens and children as they “transition” to the opposite gender, Breitbart reported.
According to its website, it is currently the second largest provider of the hormone in the country and is “working to expand access continually.”
Leuprolide acetate, known as Lupron, is a hormone commonly used for prostate cancer in men and endometriosis in women, which is also currently prescribed to children and adolescents suffering from gender dysphoria, a psychological condition, to block puberty hormones with the idea of “changing to the opposite sex.”
Planned Parenthood, which has been embroiled in the scandal of selling fetal organs on demand, is also one of the main promoters of eradicating any legislation that recognizes the existence of the two sexes, male and female, with the intention of turning into reality the idea that one can become what one perceives oneself to be.
Interestingly, this fact has infuriated several radical feminist organizations, which, while supporting the clinic’s work in promoting abortion, have criticized it for promoting these highly dangerous and even deadly sex change treatments, arguing that it would be the end of Planned Parenthood due to potential lawsuits.
The dangers of using Lupron
The use of the hormone, which has no formal FDA approval and barely a “recommendation” from the American College of Pediatrics and the Endocrine Society, two radical progressive organizations that ignore the evidence, has no studies that have documented benefits in children and adolescents with gender dysphoria.
On the contrary, adverse effects such as tumors, cardiovascular events, heart attacks and blood clots, suicidal behavior and other psychological disorders, brittle bones and painful joints, and sterility have been reported.
Between 2013 and June 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recorded 41,213 adverse events, including 6,379 deaths and 25,645 “serious” reactions in patients taking the hormone blocker.
In other words, not only is it not beneficial for children and adolescents with the gender disorder, but it is also highly dangerous. According to data from follow-up reports, the worst thing is that these children and adolescents eventually accept their biological sex at an older age.
However, once embarked on this dangerous hormone treatment, for many things such as infertility, there is no turning back.
Dr. Paul Hruz, a pediatric endocrinologist in St. Louis, criticized that the hormone prescription is done without scientific backing and that the consequences are irreversible.
He explained that during adolescence is when the body builds up bone mass for the rest of one’s life, and that disrupting this process with the hormone results in bone fragility that cannot be reversed.
Show me the money
Hormone treatments for gender transition are a highly lucrative business.
In 2017, AbbVie, which produces Lupron, stated that sales of the drug totaled $669 million in the United States alone.
Dr. Michael Laidlaw, a California endocrinologist and childhood gender dysphoria specialist, said, “Lupron … monthly is $775 alone. That’s a $27,000 ‘pause button’ at 5 years [of age]. Multiply this together with the huge rise in cases documented or observed in Western nations and a major windfall is to be had.”
It is not hard to understand then why Planned Parenthood advocates sex change and eliminating the concept of male and female.
