Women’s Health Clinic Bans Disabled Female Patient Over “Adult Human Female” T-Shirt

A disabled Pennsylvanian woman is speaking out after Planned Parenthood Keystone dismissed her from medical treatment over what they allege are “anti-trans and transphobic” views. The woman, who uses the pseudonym Jane Lane, had been receiving healthcare at the Pennsylvania clinic for over a decade.

Lane shared a letter she says she received from Trish Tashjian, the Chief Operating Officer of Planned Parenthood Keystone on April 11.

“To ensure the highest level of patient care, I want to inform you that Planned Parenthood Keystone will no longer be available to serve you as your healthcare provider, effective 4/11/2024,” Tashjian wrote.

“The dismissal from services is due to repeated offensive conversations and symbols that contradict our commitment to creating an inclusive and compassionate environment for both staff and patients. Numerous complaints from staff members have been received, and a recent complaint from a patient regarding your anti-trans and transphobic rhetoric and symbols has been brought to our attention. Resources below are recommendations for choosing a new healthcare provider. We will be available to see you in case of medical emergencies until 5/10/2024. We will transfer your medical records to your new healthcare provider upon receipt of a signed authorization to do so.”

The letter was initially shared on X by @TTExulansic, who also included photos of the shirts Lane had occasionally worn to her appointments. Among the shirts were those with slogans “Make Women Female Again”; “Woman: Adult Human Female”; and “100% Natural Woman, Female Original.”

But Lane says she witnessed a Planned Parenthood staff member with yellow and purple hair wearing similarly politicized t-shirts and jewelry, including a “smash the gender binary” pin and “they/them” pronoun earrings.

Lane has revealed that Planned Parenthood Keytstone cancelled an upcoming medical appointment and barred her from booking further appointments online. She also alleged that she received zero warning, that no attempt was made to accommodate her beliefs prior to her termination, and that no official Planned Parenthood policy documents were provided or explained to her. 

Lane suffers from several health diagnoses, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and had been accessing the clinic for birth control injections for the past decade.

In an email with Reduxx, Lane described how she had conversations about “men in women’s prisons, sports, and locker rooms” while she was at the clinic, but added that she hadn’t intended to offend anyone. She said that she even apologized to staff for sharing “gross information” after talking about genital surgeries performed on transgender identified men and women on a single occasion.

She denied being transphobic, adding that her concerns about gender ideology had to do with the safeguarding of women and children.

“I am absolutely terrified of men in women’s spaces, the erosion of women’s rights, and the abuse of children that is all being done under the name of trans,” said Lane.

Lane is now seeking legal advice. She said she is thankful to have been able to find alternate healthcare after being fired as a patient from Planned Parenthood Keystone. 

According to their website, “The mission of Planned Parenthood Keystone is to provide and promote access to the essential reproductive health care services and comprehensive sexuality education people need to live healthy lives and build strong communities.” There are no policies about inclusion or patient conduct on the site. 

Planned Parenthood Keystone has not responded to a request for comment at the time of publication.
