    I am firmly of the belief people should be able to choose for themselves how they want to live. Not convicts who are living in prison for committing a crime and certainly I don't want to pay for it.

    No and another example of why this country is going broke. We can not afford the increasingly bizarre ideologies to be paid for by everyone else.

    ... So a Reagan appointee who served under Romney voted in favor of prison officials paying for somebody's sex reassignment surgery? Massachusetts is one of those states where weird **** happens and nobody seems to know why.

    Can you honestly say that Reagan would have been able to foresee that this judge would approve cases, let alone see a case, dealing with a surgery that was in it's infancy when he was leaving office?

    As far as the number of weird things happening in Massachusetts, I can only assume it is the age of the state, maybe senility is setting in.

    In my experience it has to do with a very cloistered perspective and attitude.

    Actually it is about people everywhere being different.The only truly predictable thing about people is that they are unpredictable. The subject of this thread stems from the question, are we the people of the United States of America responsible for the bill when a murderer wants what amounts to an elective surgery?

    I truly believe people are born this way. I also truly believe this person is in prison. Yeah if he gets shanked or gets the flu or something but a sex change?

    He gave his constitutional rights when he committed murder.

    Re: Massachusetts judge approves taxpayer-funded sex change for inmate

    I disagree with this ruling because she's in prison for killing her ex-wife and **** her-- but that doesn't really provide an excuse for the kind of bigoted and medically ignorant bull**** that people are spouting about the transgendered.

    We, as a morally just society, have an obligation to provide for the medical care of people that we have taken into custody because we are, directly, preventing them from being able to secure their own medical care. But I don't think for one second that such medical care should extend beyond the care they would receive if they had not been convicted felons-- if she needed a new heart or a new knee in order to service her rehabilitation, I would support paying for that, but she should be forced to pay for her own ladyparts.
