(LifeSiteNews) – In 2021, Planned Parenthood committed 383,460 abortions. It is difficult to wrap your mind around that number when you consider that each abortion was an act of violence perpetrated against an innocent human being, and that in a mere twelve months Planned Parenthood ended more American lives than were lost in World War II and the Korean War combined. We also know that Planned Parenthood abortion workers pulled brains, livers, and other body parts out of those freshly killed babies to sell to researchers at a profit. But despite all of that, it turns out that the evillest of all American corporations can, in fact, get worse.

In February of 2021, journalist Abigail Shrier, author of “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters,” broke the story that Planned Parenthood had opened up a lucrative sideline in selling transgender drugs, including to minors.

According to Planned Parenthood, in just a few years they have become the second largest national provider of hormone “therapies,” with Shrier interviewing one employee who reported that one or two teenage girls were coming in to the local Planned Parenthood daily seeking testosterone – per day. This was in a small town of 30,000. Shrier reported that Planned Parenthood employees were trained in how to obtain the girls’ “informed consent” and start providing them with the drugs. This sideline, says Shrier, is very lucrative.

Planned Parenthood’s role in “transitioning” girls into… well, not boys, just badly damaged girls – has been exposed more thoroughly in the recent documentary “The Detransition Diaries: Saving Our Sisters,” produced by the Center for Bioethics and Culture.

The film tells the stories of Cat Cattinson, Grace Lidinsky-Smith, and Helena Kerschner, two of whom got their “hormone therapy” at Planned Parenthood. After pursuing transition, all three young women are now “de-transitioners,” and part of a growing movement of those coming forward to tell their heartbreaking stories. We’ve covered many of these stories in this space. We will, I suspect, be covering many more of them in the years to come.

Planned Parenthood, however, is on the frontlines of mainstreaming gender ideology. The National Catholic Register has reported that around 35,000 people have received hormone “treatments” at Planned Parenthood, which now offers the drugs at 200 locations in 41 states. Two of the young women in “The Detransition Diaries,” Cat and Helena, affirm what the employee interviewed by Shrier revealed: that getting this “therapy” was as easy as simply asking. Cat says it took a thirty-minute phone call. Helena says her appointment was about an hour, and she got precisely what she asked for. As one de-transitioner put it: Planned Parenthood is “handing out hormones like candy to anyone who walks in the door.”

Almost daily now, horrified young women are taking to the internet to describe experiences that most media outlets are determined to ignore. One recently noted that “I’ve ruined my life”; another, who got a double mastectomy and hormone therapy at fourteen, that “there’s no reason for me to continue to live.”

Planned Parenthood deals in death and despair, and there’s more than one way to kill young people – quickly, or slowly. For years, they’ve been a global leader in killing human beings quickly and in great numbers; now, they’ve joined the ranks of the movement persuading young people that “gender affirmation treatments” are the cure to all their ills – and the mutilated, irreversibly damaged victims of their new lucrative sideline are left struggling with the results, stunned by what has happened to them.

Every doctor who participates in these practices should be investigated, sued and, if possible, jailed. Planned Parenthood is, once again, guilty of crimes against humanity.
