In her newsletter “The Truth Fairy” this week, transgender industry critic Abigail Shrier, the author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters,” reports that she spoke with an anonymous former Planned Parenthood employee who confessed that she had grown deeply concerned that the organization’s new high-profile role as a supplier of transgender hormone treatments would lead to its end.
“They still provide vital services for women,” the former employee said, commenting that pro-life activists “will jump at any opportunity to smear them. Having said that, their recent roles in trans activism are abhorrent, and they’re digging their own grave.”
Shrier linked to an April 2017 article at the Daily Beast that affirmed attempts to strip Planned Parenthood of its taxpayer funds would not only affect its already dwindling non-abortion healthcare services, but would also “damage what might be the largest provider of transgender health care in the United States.”
Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, told the Beast that about 65 Planned Parenthood locations were offering transgender medical treatments such as cross-sex hormones. “It’s possible they’re the largest provider of trans health in the country,” Keisling said. “We don’t know for sure. But it’s certainly among the biggest, if not the biggest.”
Shrier wrote in her post that the former Planned Parenthood employee told her that “trans identifying kids are cash cows, and they are kept on the hook for the foreseeable future in terms of follow-up appointments, bloodwork, meetings, etc., whereas abortions are (hopefully) a one-and-done situation.”
New President Joe Biden has already shown himself to be supportive of trans rights at the expense of women’s rights, and some feminists are finally starting to wake up about that.
