MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A federal appeals court has upheld a judge's ruling striking down a Wisconsin law banning taxpayer-funded hormone therapy for transgender inmates.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision came Friday in a case brought by a group of male inmates who identify as female.

... and if they do it anyway?
I know it’s one of the amendments to the Constitution requiring hormone therapy be paid for by taxpayers. I just can’t quite put my finger on it. 14th? 1st? Well, I’m SURE it’s there SOMEWHERE. Close to the “requirement” to fund Planned Parenthood.
Prison just isn’t what it used to be.
Obamacare’s gonna ram all this sex-related crap down our throats and down our childrens’ throats; and he and the Democrat commies gonna make us pay for not being Politically Correct. - That’ll learn us dern us; meantime Obama, Reid & Pelosi get filthy rich while being “public servants”.
Headline writer should be fired.
There is a huge stretch between denying them something and paying for it.
good thing we’re not broke or anything.
You KNOW it’s all in the Good and Plenty clause.
Group of insane with the support of an insane court. Nothing new here.
I agree with the court ruling. Give them “therapy” that will make sure they never ever file another lawsuit again.
I think we’ve seen quite enough. What should replace the entity now known as the “United States of America”?
“Obamacares gonna ram all this sex-related crap down our throats and down our childrens throats;”
Actually ... I think it’ll be quite the opposite. Sure they’ll promise all sorts of medical goodies while they institute the whole medical scheme. However, once it starts to fail, these kinds of things will be the first to go. You’ll then see them deem “promiscuous behavior” as a reason to get “the pill” (as Obama put it) as opposed to medical treatment. The media will pay absolutely no attention to these “transgenders” or homosexuals or whatever the new “sex du jour” is these days.
The Marxists are so predictable ... they promote their useful idiots to advance their agenda. Then, with satanic glee, they go and mass murder them as soon as they’re deemed useless. I mean, the last thing you’d want is one of your useful idiots turning on you, right?
So, in a way, we’ll have it rammed down our throats ... however, once its useless ... and it’ll become useless rather quickly ... it’ll just disappear! Magic!
Why not? It's freakin' PRISON! They should be able to deny all kinds of things.
I think that it emanated from a penumbra.
