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.
