The billion dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood is expanding its work of harming and destroying children’s lives.
After aborting millions of unborn babies, Planned Parenthood recently also began providing cross-sex hormones and recommendations for surgeries that mutilate and sterilize young adults who are struggling with mental health problems and consider themselves to be transgender.
Now, testimonies from some of these same young adults suggest the taxpayer-funded abortion chain is basically giving out hormone prescriptions like candy to any child or adult who wants them.
According to the New York Post, 23-year-old Helena Kerschner, of Cincinnati, Ohio, said Planned Parenthood gave her a testosterone prescription after one short visit; she never saw a doctor. Later, Kerschner said she learned that her prescription was four times the normal dose.
“I was going through a period where I was just really isolated at school, so I turned to the Internet,” she told the newspaper.
There, Kerschner said she found an online community that seemed to support her and her feelings of confusion about being a girl. “My dysphoria was definitely triggered by this online community. I never thought about my gender or had a problem with being a girl before going on Tumblr,” she said.

Eventually, however, Kerschner said she began to realize how badly the testosterone from Planned Parenthood was affecting her; her emotions were unstable and she tried to harm herself so badly that she was hospitalized twice.
In the hospital, “I saw a montage of photos of me, and when I saw how much my face changed and how unhappy I looked, I realized this was all f—– up and I shouldn’t have done it. It was a really dark time,” she said.
Live Action reports another young woman, Cat Cattinson, said she, too, began questioning her gender and went to Planned Parenthood for help.
In an interview with the Independent Women’s Forum, Cattinson explained, “I started off by getting a prescription for testosterone and to do that I called up Planned Parenthood because I’d heard they provided gender affirming services.”
The young woman said she felt surprised when Planned Parenthood gave her the hormone prescription after a short phone call; she never saw a doctor either.
“I thought I would have to go through some kind of process to get the testosterone, whether it was psychological evaluation or a certain number of visits with psychiatrists, etc.,” Cattinson said. “But instead, what happened is I talked on the phone for 30 minutes with a doctor I’d never met in person and I got prescribed testosterone over the phone.”
On Twitter, Cattinson shared a screen shot of the abortion chain’s website to confirm their stories.
“In most cases, your clinician will be able to prescribe hormones the same day as your first visit. No letter from a mental health provider is required,” the website says.
Later, Cattinson said she talked with a doctor at Planned Parenthood about having “top surgery,” meaning the removal of her breasts. She said the doctor never met her in person but did write a letter of recommendation for her to have the surgery.
“I had top surgery scheduled as well: double mastectomy,” she said. “To obtain permission for that I also talked to a different doctor at Planned Parenthood who again, without meeting me, had written me a recommendation letter for top surgery.”
Much like Kerschner, however, she said she began questioning the path she was taking because the effects of the testosterone on her body were so terrible; she did not go through with the surgery.
Live Action also found other people on social media sharing how they received cross-sex hormones from Planned Parenthood without seeing a doctor or receiving counseling.
“I went to Planned Parenthood… I basically walked in – I said ‘Hi. I think I’m trans,’” a young man named Ryan shared on TikTok. “They said, ‘Great, we’re gonna diagnose you with gender dysphoria and here’s your prescription for testosterone. You can get it the very next day.’ And I said, ‘Great.’ I didn’t actually realize in my head what a huge f—— red flag this was.”
Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar abortion chain that brags about being a leading provider of sex education, abortions and “transgender-affirming hormone therapy” in the United States.
It reports approximately $1.7 billion in revenue while aborting more than 370,000 unborn babies annually. Of that, more than half a billion dollars comes from taxpayer funding, despite its abortion practice and numerous scandals, including allegations of the sales of aborted baby body parts, botched abortions, racial and pregnancy discrimination, sexual abuse cover-ups, Medicaid fraud and more.
Its sex education materials tell children that promiscuity is ok. “There’s nothing bad or unhealthy about having a big number of sexual partners,” it tells students on its Tumbler page. Planned Parenthood’s booklet for HIV-positive youth, “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” also tells young people that it is their “human right” to not tell their partner that they have HIV.
Former abortion industry workers say abortion providers use sex education programs to promote risky sexual behavior and sell abortions.
