    Planned Parenthood has gone all in on child gender transition services, which means you are paying for them.

    The nation's largest abortion provider offers gender transition services at hundreds of clinics across the country, and because Planned Parenthood and its affiliates get more than half a billion dollars in government funding every year, that's Americans' tax dollars at work.

    At least 344 Planned Parenthood clinics in 41 states across the country currently offer gender transition services, according to its website. Many clinics offer cross-sex hormones for minors, and some provide puberty blockers.

    While we might not blink at such a leftist organization dabbling in the medical gender transition market, it's a significant departure from Planned Parenthood's core mission. Helping kids move toward sex changes is not clearly related to "family planning."

    However, as Planned Parenthood's abortion business reels in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the organization continues to take advantage of this shiny new market.

    Since the abortion provider gets more than $600 million a year in government funding, we are all effectively paying for this new enterprise.

    Planned Parenthood received $633.4 million in government funding in the year ending June 30, 2021, according to the organization's latest annual report. The bulk of those funds comes from Medicaid reimbursements, and about $60 million comes from Title X family planning grants. Title X is a federal program, while Medicaid uses federal and state funds.

    This week, Planned Parenthood came under fire after critics on social media highlighted a cartoon YouTube ad about child gender transitions. The spot was initially posted to Planned Parenthood's YouTube account in January.

    The ad, which is aimed at children, says some people take hormones or get surgeries to help their bodies match up with their gender identity. If kids are transgender or non-binary, they can take puberty blockers, which are "safe" and work like a "stop sign," the ad says.

    "Your gender identity is real. You should be the one to decide what changes you want to make to your body," the ad tells kids.

    The ad directs children to the teen section of Planned Parenthood's website, which links to a slew of material about puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones in line with leftist gender ideology.

    The LGBTQ+ page also directs kids to a chat space where teens ages 13 to 19 can chat with each other and even send pictures.

    Planned Parenthood even encourages trans-identifying people, potentially including minors, to ask for hormones at their local clinic, even if the clinic doesn't offer them yet.

    "If your closest Planned Parenthood health center doesn't offer hormone treatments and you want them to, tell them. Let them know that you're interested in this service and what it would mean for you. This goes for any service you'd like to get at your local Planned Parenthood," the abortion provider says on its website.

    Both puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones come with serious health risks, including infertility and weight gain. Puberty blockers can affect bone growth and density, and cross-sex hormones can cause blood clots, diabetes, strokes, heart problems, high blood pressure, and male-pattern baldness, as well as increase the risk of breast cancer.

    Monica Cline, a former Planned Parenthood sex educator, said Planned Parenthood "intentionally" leaves parents out of the gender identity conversation.

    "When Planned Parenthood trained me as a Title X Sex-Ed Educator, I was specifically taught that parents are a barrier to service and they should never be brought into the conversation," she said.

    "Parents need to wake up and talk to their kids about intimacy, about how they feel growing up and the new things their bodies are doing and to be a part of their children's lives because if they don't, then Planned Parenthood will," Cline said.

    Parents across the country have begun to push back against hormone and surgical gender interventions for kids, and some states have already moved to restrict hormone treatments.

    In the meantime though, Planned Parenthood is cashing in.
