    Should sex change operations be paid for by Gov. funds?

    This subject came up at my coffee clutch today so I was curious how the members of the forum felt about it?

    I voted no. IMO, I see no reason for tax payers to pay for it.

    No.

    What did your coffee clutch think of it?
    Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.

    No. No opt-in procedures should be covered unless medically prescribed by a doctor as a requirement of physical health.

    Sex changes and most cosmetic procedures should not be paid for by the government.

    Why is this an issue? Is there anywhere that this is being done? Most health plans don't cover these things - -even private ones.

    We want to make sure you don't get reimbursed for you operation.

    Oh come on Groucho, this is a hypothetical paranoia thread. Just join in and see where it goes...

    Absolutely not. It's a ridiculously expensive and entirely elective course of therapy.

    Tax payers should never pay for cosmetic surgery so I voted no.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
