    There are many countries where SRS is free. If you cannot afford the procedure all you have to do is move to one of those country and live there until you are eligible for the free surgery. Much easier then committing a crime and spending your life in jail.

    And as I have said before there are women without the xx chromosomes and a uterus. And SRS gives you the vagina.

    Is it possible that she is doing this to get transferred to a womens prison? Yes. Although very unlikely. Psychologists are trained to figure out who is and isnt transgendered.

    I think people have gotten off the point. Is it important to discuss what this person's mental status is or whether this person is a he or she in their own mind. The point here is whether we the taxpayers should pay for an elective surgery. We're not talking about heart surgery or cancer, we are talking about giving an unnecessary surgery to someone who is in prison for killing someone.

    Apparently doctors testified on his behalf saying this was not an elective surgery due to his mental condition. I think that is BS because it is still elective in the sense he will not die without it and suicide would be better than the rest of his life in a cold cell.
    My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

    Of course doctors will support it, some doctor is going to be the one getting paid to do it.

    The doctors that made the diagnosis of GID or Transsexualism arnt going to be the same doctors that actually operate. A surgeon cannot diagnose a patient with either and a psychologist cannot operate on a patient. So the doctors that made the diagnosis wouldnt have made the diagnosis just to make money.

    It seems that most people here are in agreement that the state should not pay for SRS for an inmate although I get why they considered it necessary for the well being of the patient.

    Yep, this. It's much easier to move up to Canada, instead of committing a crime that will get you a life sentence.

    Or as I just found out today there are plenty of companies that will pay for your SRS, hormones, electrolysis ect if you are an employee there.

    That may be true but that is still a private matter between a company and its employee. This issue is between taxpayers and the prisoner in question.

    What is completely ridiculous is that they are calling this a "medical need." Such bull crap. This guy is not only a inmate but a convicted murder who strangled his wife with a cord and left her body in the trunk of a car in a mall parking lot in North Attleborough, MA. I've been seriously thinking about moving out of this backwards-ass state.
