Planned Parenthood has gone beyond its abortion advocacy with a new cartoon aimed at promoting puberty-blocking pharmaceutical drugs to children.
The video was shared by the conservative group, Inside the classroom, which has been instrumental in exposing critical race theory and efforts to indoctrinate school children.
“There is no one size fits all puberty experience,” the video says.
“Some people decide on hormones or surgeries to help their bodies match up to their gender identities or how they feel inside about themselves.”
“Your gender identity is real. You should be the one to decide what changes you want to make to your body.”
“If you’re transgender or nonbinary, you may find that your puberty experiences don’t line up with your gender identity. That feeling can be uncomfortable, scary, and stressful. If that sounds like you, know that you’re not alone,” the video further claims before launching into a push for ‘safe’ puberty-blocking drugs,” it adds.
“There are medicines you can take to delay puberty for a while,” the video proclaims, adding, “they work 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,” the video continues, failing to provide any detailed facts.
According to the American College of Pediatricians, “There is not a single long-term study to demonstrate the safety or efficacy of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries for transgender-believing youth.”
But in the short term, the drugs have been linked to confusion, depression, and other mental and emotional problems.
Other longer-term studies suggest the drugs could cause sterilization, cognitive problems, increased body fat percentage and body mass index, and arterial hypertension, amongst other things.
