    So you don't believe the prison system should look after the psychological needs of prisoners?

    Not only that but the report that was posted didn't say she was having surgery.

    Meh...cant blame the guy for wanting to spend the next few decades playing with female boobs. Hell of a way to pass the time when there isnt much else to do. Hopefully he will make sure they remove the mirrors. He makes for an ugly 'woman'.

    Mental and physical health are very much related. Also, remember that the report that was posted makes no mention of surgery.

    Selective surgical procedures should not be defined as psychological needs. Even if they are in this case, what Manning wants involves spending a disproportionate amount of recesources on one prisoner.

    In short, Manning should be afforded the same level of psychological care given to other prisoners. If one needs comprehensive and customized attention for a psychological need, it is best not to commit crimes.

    If it was affecting him so much mentally maybe he should of had the change when he was a free man instead of betraying his country?

    Again, the article that was posted made no mention of surgery.
