BOSTON – A federal appeals court on Friday upheld a judge's ruling granting a taxpayer-funded sex change operation for a transgender inmate serving a life sentence for a murder conviction, saying receiving medically necessary treatment is a constitutional right that must be protected "even if that treatment strikes some as odd or unorthodox."

U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled in 2012 that the state Department of Correction must provide sex reassignment surgery for Michelle Kosilek, who was born as Robert Kosilek and is serving a life sentence for the killing of his wife in 1990.

So then, does he/she/it go to the women’s prison after the sex change? How does that work?

Can I also ask a stupid question? We’re going to give this surgery to someone imprisoned for murder, someone who may well be there for life. What is the point of doing this surgery on someone who may never get to live out his/her life in the world as the gender of their choice????

My questions exactly. They also have this $50k to do this, but no money to give to our Vets. They just continue to cut back money for them.

Judge, please define “medically necessary”.

Anyone in prison for LIFE should get the minimum amount of care - comfort care. No life-extending medicines or surgeries.

Just one more reason why there should be one mass tax strike in this country. As we have seen with illegal immigration, if everyone does it then it’s OK.

Someone wants to scrimp and save and work their butt off to save to get parts chopped off or altered or pierced or tattooed whatever to them, whatever, that is fine.

Just don't go demanding that I pay for your proclivities.

And don't do proselytizing your weird hang ups on the youth and you can do whatever as long as you are not hurting others or prancing around naked all over the place or whatever.

Just don't expect society or expect to FORCE society to treat you like this:

If you look like this:

Given that the states have never delegated to Congress, via the Constitution, the specific power to tax and spend for PC sexual orientation issues, Mass. state taxpayers had better be paying the bill for this operation and not US taxpayers.

And if Mass. majority voters don’t want their tax dollars to be spent on such things, but are too lazy to exercise their voting muscle to prohibit such operations in the future, then they can sleep in the bed that they have made for themselves imo.

I think this could be done very cost effectively by auctioning the surgical rights to interested denizens of the state women’s prison. Surely someone there would be willing to perform the requisite -ectomies.

OK....
Products needed.

Soundproof Headset.
Paper sack.
Bunch of cherry bombs.
Matches.

Seat patient.
Insert Cherry bombs in paper sack.
Have patient spread legs.
Insert sack between legs.
Cross legs.
Keeper put on head set.
Light fuse.

Didn’t some sue a few years back so they could be prescribed Viagra and other such enhancements?

Sheriff Joe got the right idea.
Pink jump suits.

Add to above
Put large barbed wired fence with razor wire on top, Mined Moat and ‘No mans land’, another fence line.
Have a few mounted guards, allow prisoners to ‘run the compound’.
Get out of hand, High Pressure Water Cannons very effective.
Problem will fix itself.
Oh yes, attempted escape, SHOOT TO KILL .... Good job for the Snipers put out of work by discharge or stupid ROE’s.

This isn’t about this convict and his “medically necessary” treatment. This is about normalizing mental illness and perversion and making the taxpayers pay for it.
