Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has created a cartoon to sell the concept of puberty blockers, hormones, and surgery as a “solution” to gender dysphoria.
“Puberty blocker ad put out by Planned Parenthood, which tells children that they can get puberty blockers to ‘put their puberty on hold,’” the Twitter account Inside the Classroom wrote of the video, which it shared on Monday.

“There is no one size fits all puberty experience,” the video informs viewers. “If you’re trans, intersex, or non-binary, know that you’re not the only one feeling confused.”
“For some intersex people, puberty may start later than age 14,” the audio of the video states. “You might experience some of puberty’s changes and not others. And your body may or may not go through puberty on its own.”
“There are medicines you can take to help your body start the process. Like hormone replacement therapy,” it explains. “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,” the video also states.
“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.”

“There are medicines you can take to delay puberty for awhile,” the audio explains, portraying puberty blockers as a seemingly simple treatment to give a teenager “more time” to decide what “feels right.”
“And 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.”
Puberty blockers have emerged as a new means through which the nation’s largest abortion provider can make cold, hard cash it would appear, second of course to its lucrative practice of terminating unborn babies in the womb.
Both practices, of course, are hardly safe. Abortion is always lethal to a human being when successful, and puberty blockers, contrary to the reassuring tone of this cartoon video, and puberty blockers have by no means been established as being without risk.
Earlier this year, the United Kingdom’s infamous Tavistock gender clinic for children shut down following a formal, independent review which in part cast doubt on the safety of the puberty blockers being administered by the facility.
“The rationale for use of puberty blockers at Tanner Stage 2 of development was based on data that demonstrated that children, particularly birth-registered boys who had early gender incongruence, were unlikely to desist once they reached early puberty; this rationale does not necessarily apply to later-presenting young people, including the predominant referral group of birth-registered girls,” wrote Dr. Hillary Cass, who led the review as we reported at the time.
“We do not fully understand the role of adolescent sex hormones in driving the development of both sexuality and gender identity through the early teen years, so by extension we cannot be sure about the impact of stopping these hormone surges on psychosexual and gender maturation. We therefore have no way of knowing whether, rather than buying time to make a decision, puberty blockers may disrupt that decision-making process.”
Meanwhile, members of the medical community have also been sounding the alarm that puberty blockers aren’t as safe as they’re being presented by those who stand to gain from administering such treatments (like Planned Parenthood).
“I think there was naivete on the part of pediatric endocrinologists who were proponents of early [puberty] blockade thinking that just this magic can happen, that surgeons can do anything,” Dr. Marci Bowers, who identifies as trans, told journalist Abigail Shrier last year.
“There are definitely people who are trying to keep out anyone who doesn’t absolutely buy the party line that everything should be affirming, and that there’s no room for dissent,” Bowers said. “I think that’s a mistake.”
