PPMM provides gender-affirming hormone therapy for children as young as 16, as well as surgical and chemical abortions. It has become a national leader in recruiting “youth influencers” to market its services. And its “Sex Ed Equity Project” is aimed at children as young as 13, and received a Title X grant, with annual funding of $1,004,826 in 2021. This isn’t the first time Lofgren has requested $2 million in federal funding for the PPMM Community Clinic to relocate and renovate.
