    My quote was in response to those who thought that the state paying for SRS for prisoners would cause transsexuals to commit crimes just in order to get free SRS. I was pointing out easier ways that dont require you to spend long amounts of time in jail.

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

    Anybody have any clue how much tax-payer funding has been provided to the family of the wife who was almost beheaded?

    If the ratio is anything less than 10:1 I say kill this idea completely.

    Second, can we strike a compromise? If he doesn't want his man-parts anymore I see no reason why they can't be removed.

    Third, for number 2 - let a medical college perform the operation. Students learning to become surgeons.

    Forth - only after he/she raises his/her own money by working (or private donations) can the desired lady-parts be built and installed.

    Fifth - regarding number four - using the same 10:1 ratio - money must also be forwarded to victim's family before lady-parts can be attached.

    Massachusetts judge approves taxpayer-funded sex change for inmate | Fox News

    A federal judge on Tuesday ordered state prison officials to provide taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery to a transgender inmate serving life in prison for murder.
    Michelle Kosilek was born male but has received hormone treatments and now lives as a woman in an all-male prison. Robert Kosilek was convicted of murder in the killing of his wife in 1990.
    U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf is believed to be the first federal judge to order prison officials to provide sex-reassignment surgery for a transgender inmate.
    Kosilek first sued the Massachusetts Department of Correction 12 years ago. Two years later, Wolf ruled that Kosilek was entitled to treatment for gender-identity disorder but stopped short of ordering surgery. Kosilek sued again in 2005, arguing that the surgery is a medical necessity.
    In his ruling Tuesday, Wolf found that surgery is the "only adequate treatment" for Kosilek's "serious medical need."
    "The court finds that there is no less intrusive means to correct the prolonged violation of Kosilek's Eighth Amendment right to adequate medical care," Wolf wrote in his 126-page ruling.
    I don't think inmates should be getting anything but hospice care.

    No dental care except extractions. (which we could show them how to do themselves)

    If an inmate needs mental health care, he's probably in the wrong facility.

    Although, I would support forced sex changes for rapists and child molesters before going into a prison general population.
