    Pentagon pushes Manning transfer for gender treatment

    Defense officials say the Pentagon is trying to transfer convicted national security leaker Pvt. Chelsea Manning to a civilian prison so that she can get treatment for her gender disorder.

    Eventually this person will be freed from prison and will have to be re-integrated into society.

    My question is: how much (If anything.) do the rest of us owe this person? The treatment that this person will require will be pretty expensive, I'm sure.

    Who is going to pay those bills? Who should pay those bills?

    Any ideas?

    Medical treatment is a basic human right, so there's nothing wrong with this in my eyes. And it's not all that expensive.

    He or she isn't covered by Obamacare while in prison ?

    I guess that's what happens when Congress passes a bill without reading it first.

    So everyone has a basic human right to a lifetime of hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery?

    Isn't it amazing how Manning only sought gender reassignment surgery when on the government dime? Prior to that, counseling seemed to suffice.

    He was an unfortunately stupid kid that did something that was very costly to others and, in fact, most of us. He had to be punished and probably he should remain in custody to the end. When the sentence is fulfilled? Well let him go to fend for himself as any other gender sick ex convict would have to do. Or do you think he should get special treatment? If you do? Pay for it.
