Skip to comments.Ruling buoys killer’s quest for sex change
Posted on 05/31/2011 5:59:51 AM PDT by massmike
An appellate ruling that correction officials have acted with deliberate indifference by denying female hormone therapy to a transgendered child rapist is giving new hope to a convicted killer suing for a state-funded sex-change operation.
A lawyer for inmate Michelle Lynne Kosilek filed a plea Thursday in his decade-old case before U.S. District Court Chief Judge Mark L. Wolf, saying a May 20 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston for inmate Sandy Jo Battista supports Kosileks similar claims of cruel and unusual punishment by the Department of Correction.
The ruling states DOC can no longer use inmate safety concerns, such as sexual assault, as an excuse for withholding hormone therapy from Battista, who is anatomically male, but identifies and lives as a woman.
Kosilek, 62, who was born Robert Kosilek, is serving life for the 1990 strangulation of his wife Cheryl Kosilek in Mansfield.

SUES FOR SURGERY: Convicted murderer Michelle Kosilek wants the state to pay for sex-change surgery.
This country is going to hell.
The United States has truly, truly gone mad. Medical treatment? I don’t think this falls under any definition of such. Is a tattoo medical treatment? It’s something you WANT done. Scotty, beam us up.
More on U.S. District Court Chief Judge Mark L. Wolf:
...U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf dismissed a lawsuit by outraged parents whose children attend the Lexington, Massachusetts elementary school, where 6-year- olds were subjected to a story about a prince who falls in love
with another prince,and they get “married”.....
In his decision, Judge Wolf wrote that public schools
are entitled to teach anything that is reasonably related to the goals of preparing students to become engaged and
productive citizens in our democracy.
Families dont even have a right to pull their kids from
indoctrination sessions, because allowing parents to opt out
could send the message that gays, lesbians, and the children of same-sex parents are inferior and, therefore, have a damaging effect on those children, Wolf wrote.....
It gets stranger and stranger out there!
My neighbor of 22 years who is a married man and father of two, has taken to walking his dog in drag. Complete with boobs. I was absolutely floored...so were the rest of my neighbors. :0)
homosexual agenda ping
Felony conviction = zero elective medical treatment, including all sex-change therapy or surgery, on the public nickel!
NO elective surgery should be permitted on prisoners. None.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
I think the only surgical procedure that one needs is the one Dr. Joseph-Ignace Guillotin proposed, just in time for the French Revolution....
Livin’ a little too close to power lines, is he?!
LOL! It was quite a shock. My son came running in the house,
“ Mom! Mr S——ley has boobs and he wearing sandals with heels!”
He’s been “dressed up” while walking his dog all weekend.
It’s display narcissism. He wants to be looked at, he wants to display himself. That’s mostly what homosexuals and transgenders are about.
Shame on you, alice_in_bubbaland, for not posting this picture on FR. I bet the dog is dying of humiliation!! I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when you tried to explain this to your son!!!
I feel sorry for his wife and kids. His hair has been getting longer this past year and we thought he was going through a mid life “hippie stage”.
My kid is 24, he was laughing his butt off!
What a terrible waste of tax $$. Another REWARDING of criminals.
IT is not a woman...IT is a man..IT is a convicted criminal...IT does not rate taxpaxer supported anything except aspirin.....IT can go to hell
More insanity from our so called judicial system.
I’m OK with this guy getting a sex change. I’ll even donate my skills as a surgeon along with the old paring knife I got from the dollar store.
“My kid is 24...”
Well, then it was definitely a family laughing moment. I was just imagining a little one running in and asking. I think I would have to take a few minutes to compose myself and think of what to say.

You aren't going to believe this one. Another liberal activist judge makes a totally inappropriate ruling favoring elective surgery for a murderer.
Just imagine explaining it to a 5 year old!
The only surgery that this murderer deserves is from male to dead.
“... imagine explaining it to a 5 year old?”
I think I would go with the “ding-dong crazy” explanation. I know that isn’t as open as some would be but it is how I would handle it.
My first ping from this list and I am already shocked and sick to my stomach.
Unfortunately that’s going to happen a lot.
Unfortunately a teacher will be doing that soon and over your objection.
Actually, it happened to us this year. My fifth grade daughter had a substitute... a man dressed as a woman. Needless to say, dinner conversation that evening was quite “lively”.
With all due respect, he is serving hard time for having strangled his wife to death. Give the poor man a butter knife and local anesthetic.
In all seriousness, given the reason he is in prison, his current behavior should not surprise. But neither should he be indulged in this.
Given that this man is in fact a convicted murderer, I would support one kind of drug he be given: it’s called capital punishment by injection.
When will the court force them to release prisoners so that they(the remaining)prisoners can get the medical care they deserve?
Is this confused creature being denied this because the money needed for it is being used elsewhere?
Isn’t he/she/it entitled to this?
So many questions, but only one answer...WTF!
Will someone shank this bitch already !?!?!?!?!?
Here’s an easy answer.....”No”. Or, if a longer answer is needed, “No, and go pack sand up your ass. The taxpayers don’t owe you a damn thing...except maybe some electricity.”
I’m okay with removing the offending member from this pervert. As for the rest of the surgery, why bother. This psychopath should be locked up forever, so it doesn’t matter what gender he looks or sounds like.
IT needs to be put out of IT’s misery.
Unless he is concerned about getting the “treatment” from other inmates, like numerous other pedophiles and rapists get from their fellow inmates. I would guess he wants the women’s prison, but last time I heard women aren’t so nice in prison either.
It’s a he. This person is not spontaneously a woman; there is the need of drugs to make this person seem like one as well, not to mention the prior mutilations. This person doesn’t deserve to be considered a “she” due to the crime of murder which he committed.
Cruel and unusual punishment? He murdered someone! What a POS. He should be executed.
