Planned Parenthood’s evolving repertoire should concern parents

transgenderism (transition illustration)A father whose efforts to help his transgender daughter were thwarted by her public school is concerned about what she will do now that she is out of high school.

In an article for USA Today, Jay Keck writes that his daughter suddenly became convinced she was a boy at age 14. He says she first informed the school, who affirmed her feelings without telling either parent. (See earlier OneNewsNow story.)

"They ... consistently resisted all requests by the parents that they refer to their daughter by her legal name and correct pronouns," reports Laurie Higgins, a cultural issues writer with the Illinois Family Institute. "So they're deliberately undermining parents at school."

As the girl approaches her 18th birthday and has graduated from school, Keck fears his daughter will now turn to Planned Parenthood.

"Since it's losing money on the abortion issue, they have stepped in to offer cross-sex hormones to teenagers," Higgins explains. "So if they can't destroy children in the womb, they'll destroy them in late adolescence."

Higgins adds that the girl is autistic, and autistic children are much more susceptible to transgenderism.

Keck writes that and his wife had their daughter evaluated by a psychologist approved by the school district. He told them he found it clear that their daughter's sudden transgender identity was driven by her underlying mental health conditions, but he would only share those thoughts off the record because he feared the potential backlash he would receive.

Keck feels his daughter is a victim "more than anything else."
