Planned Parenthood released an ad on Wednesday in which a biological woman who identifies as transgender promotes abortion as a “people’s rights” issue rather than a women’s rights issue.
The video features the testimony of a woman named Lucky who identifies as transgender and is undergoing cross-sex medical treatment through Planned Parenthood. Lucky describes having an abortion in the early stages of adopting a transgender identity and says abortion is not just a women’s rights issue.
“I tell my abortion story because people need to understand that it’s not just a women’s rights issue, it is a people’s rights issue,” Lucky says in the video. (RELATED: Planned Parenthood Leader Says Children Are ‘Sexual Beings’ From Birth: REPORT)
“My abortion was one of the greatest acts of compassion I had ever committed,” Lucky said in the video. “It was an easy decision, and it was a decision that, for the friends I had told I was trans, they were like, ‘Get it. That’s fine. Like, great, you know. That’s your decision. You want to finally begin your life.'”
It’s not just about abortion. Advocating for abortion goes hand-in-hand with advocating for gender-affirming care and birth control. Access to health care is a right, no matter what. pic.twitter.com/ZDOXJWHLVT

“It’s not just about abortion. Advocating for abortion goes hand-in-hand with advocating for gender-affirming care and birth control. Access to health care is a right, no matter what,” Planned Parenthood Action wrote in a tweet on Sunday.
