Inmate wants sex-change surgery at taxpayers' expense

A federal judge in Boston will soon decide whether taxpayers should be forced to pay for sex-change operations for prison inmates.

It is unlikely that many Americans would want to fund gender-reassignment surgeries, according to Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

“The truth is that a lot of transsexuals later have regret [about their decision],” says LaBarbera. “They don't solve their problems because these people have psychological issues and deep issues of confusion in their life -- and the radical surgery, these mutilations do not solve the problem.”

In the Boston case, Robert Kosilek is serving a life prison term for murdering his wife. Kosilek decided that he is a man trapped in a woman's body and is demanding the court force taxpayers to pay for the surgery. At issue in the case is whether the surgery is deemed "elective" or a "medical necessity."

LaBarbera believes the current administration would like to have transgender surgery paid for through ObamaCare. “Already we have a homosexual official, appointed by Obama, [who] has urged gay activists and trans activists to push for taxpayer funding of these sex-change mutilation surgeries,” the activist adds.

LaBarera believes Americans ought to be outraged.
