What Is Testosterone?

Part III in a series about Planned Parenthood’s informed consent model.

What is Testosterone?

On its informed consent form, Planned Parenthood says that testosterone is a “hormone that causes the development of masculine characteristics.”

Planned Parenthood is correct that when women and girls take testosterone, they experience cosmetic changes, but they fail to mention that testosterone is far more than a hormone that produces cosmetic changes.

In fact, women with higher than normal levels of testosterone suffer increased rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and severe liver inflammation, Depression, anxiety and eating disorders. We know this because conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, among others, cause testosterone levels in women to increase. Endocrinologists indicate succinctly that “High Testosterone Works Positively in Men and Negatively in Women.”

Each cell in a woman’s body is designed to function with a delicate balance of estrogen, progesterone, and even a small amount of testosterone.

When these hormones are unbalanced the results are similar to when a car that runs on regular gasoline is filled with diesel. The system simply doesn’t function as it should.

So Planned Parenthood now provides free access to a drug for the purpose of cosmetic changes, but which also results in serious, negative health outcomes.

What’s next? Maybe Planned Parenthood will start providing diet pills to anorexics and anabolic steroids to bodybuilders.

Hey, if there’s money in it, why not?
