New Business for Planned Parenthood: Hormone Therapy for Those Who Identify as Trans
CBN - Planned Parenthood is tapping into a new market, reaching out to young people who identify as transgender and offering them hormone therapy.
Attorney Mary Hasson, a fellow in the Catholic Studies program at the Washington, D.C.-based Ethics & Public Policy Center, has followed the trend for several years and says it makes financial sense, given the growing number of adolescents and young adults who consider themselves to be transgender or simply gender non-conforming.
Those who are gender non-conforming may want to use hormones to achieve a certain look.
"They seek hormones to modify their bodies, not to the extent that someone who identifies as transgender might but just for example, for a girl to have less fat and more musculature to look a little bit more masculine," Hasson explained.
