    Alaska Planned Parenthood centers issuing dangerous cross-sex hormones to teens

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    Planned Parenthood abortion centers in Alaska are now handing out powerful cross-sex hormones to Alaskans as young as 18 years old.

    An article announcing the practice was sent to Planned Parenthood supporters on June 16.

    According to Planned Parenthood, which is the largest provider of abortions in Alaska, it now offers “hormone therapy” drugs to alter the physical appearance of those who identify as transgender, non-binary or intersex so that they can “more closely align their bodies with their gender identity.”

    Alaska is one of many states where Planned Parenthood now markets and distributes cross-sex hormones. There are currently four Alaska Planned Parenthood clinics located in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau and Soldotna.

    Despite limited studies about long-term health impacts of changing one’s bodily appearance with powerful hormones, Planned Parenthood is offering the drugs to anyone 18 years or older with no need for a referral from a doctor or letter from a mental health care provider. Patients merely call or book an appointment online. Planned Parenthood staff will then write a prescription that can be taken to a local pharmacy.

    These drugs, however, come with serious health risks. A peer reviewed study published on the National Center for Biotechnology Information website states that there is concern that transgender hormones can lead to a greater risk of heart attack and stroke.

    Transgender hormones are a highly controversial topic in the medical field, especially as they relate to children and teens.

    The National Breast Cancer Foundation reports that just one in every 1,000 men is ever diagnosed with breast cancer. However, according to a May 2019 study in the British Medical Journal, men on hormone therapy to “transition” to women were more than 46 times more likely to suffer from breast cancer. Similarly, gender-confused women taking testosterone to “transition” to a male appearance were almost 60 times more likely to develop breast cancer. The study followed 2,260 gender-confused men and 1,229 gender-confused women.

    Planned Parenthood does not currently give puberty blockers to Alaska minors, but this is a practice the group fully supports.

    “Planned Parenthood is acutely aware of the need for this type of health care, the current lack of access, and the relentless political attacks against trans youth health care,” the recent article stated. “Once the affiliate has better mastered the implementation of gender affirming hormone care, it may be expanded to include youth.” 

    Transgender hormones are a highly controversial topic in the medical field, especially as they relate to children and teens. States across the nation are implementing bans on the practice.

    Dr. Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians, called it child abuse to promote transgender therapies for children. In a speech given at the Heritage Foundation last October she spoke of dangers associated with the practice.

    “Chemical castration is what you’re doing when you put any biologically normal child on puberty blockers,” Cretella was quoted in a LifeSiteNews article. “It’s treating puberty like a disease, arresting a normal process which is critical to normal development.”

    Dr. Cretella added that medical professionals who promote these treatments on confused youth are engaging in “experimentation on children.” She observed that gender confusion is common in preadolescents and adolescents and usually resolves after puberty.

    When it comes to transgender surgery, which includes cutting off healthy breasts and mutilating sexual organs to reconfigure outward appearances, Planned Parenthood’s Alaska affiliates are willing to write referral letters for such procedures.

    “Yes! After a patient has established care, they can ask their provider to connect them with a patient care navigator, who will help them with this service,” the group stated.

    1. So… they’ve branched out from the eugenics/infanticide business to gender bending. What a godless bunch of degenerates. Pray against this business. Pray for God’s wrath upon them in the form of confusion, in-fighting, disaster and ruin, and don’t forget to pray FOR crisis pregnancy centers.

    2. Planned parenthood is modern day sodom. Defund it now or america has no future. The drag queens will be running the show soon.

      • I know for a fact that PP in Soldotna was distributing hormones to a teenager younger than 18 two years ago. He would regularly go into PP accompanied by his mother, who would gush to us pro-lifers outside about how proud she was of her “daughter”. No amount of drugs could change that poor kid into a female, but the mother thought she and PP were helping him, though they called him “her”. PP also plasters “Planned Parenthood is Pro- You” stickers all over town, encouraging people to contact them about hormone therapies. And unfortunately many local youth are falling for the lies and trying to transition.

    3. There is hope for the Fmr. LGBTQ teen when they see the Light. I think rather than chastising giving a platform to Planned Parenthood demonic direction, you should be giving your platform to former Transender voices agianst this confusion. We all know where Planned Parenthood stands. What most people need to hear are the fmr. LGBTQ and fmr. Transgenders voices they want silent.

    7. This really is heinous child abuse and gross human experimentation. Sickening and tragic.
      With that though I agree with Jen above. Pray for these lost souls, focus on and and promote truth.

    8. Well, Molech and Baal worshippers of olden days were sacrificing first born’s on the altars. This was a popular social custom preceded by sexual introductions in their worship parties. This was a custom the Creator God condemned. Why do what God condemns? Baal and Molech religionists still support killings of first borns and the medical seizures of infant “tissues” in surgical excavations of young healthy wombs. These practices that Satan prefers indicate his horrible personality. Jesus is completing His conquest over his Father’s enemies. Perhaps you will see it with your own eyes soon.
