Let the air grey proceed. No anesthesia, though.

What needs to be done is that sane and sober state officials ignore insane and stoned judges that make such idiotic rulings.In the absence of this kind of courageous leadership the state legislature needs to start impeachment proceedings where applicable.

The state could pimp him/her out to the prison population. If the guy/gal was a liberal, the return on investment would be massive!

Maybe in your case. Your idiotic and bigoted posts deserve the maximum penalty.

Medically necessary, if he were not in prison would health insurance pay for it ??????

What a joke, he just wants to finish his life in a womens prison rather than a mens.

Well in answer to your question "YES" Massachusetts passed a law that requires ALL insurance companies doing business in the state of Mass to cover all transgender transitional surgeries and medication so even if she were not in prison Insurance in Mass would be required to cover the surgery.

OH by the way for your 411 there are five other states that also have this insurance requirement they are Washington, California,Vermont, Colorado, Delaware. Also you should known that this is the tern and will continue and that the federal government as part of the new healthcare law requires all healthcare exchanges to cover all transgender transitional related needs. Things are getting better everyday @ least from my point of view.

She my ass. He he married a woman and fathered a child. He was not so she that he could not man handle her, strip her of her clothes before he killed her. He took rope and piano wire and made a garrote which he flipped over her head and strangled her, tried to and almost did cut her head off.

When he gets out of prison then he can get the insurance you talked about and make them pay for re assignment.

@ Robert while i'm not disputing the fact that while living as a man that he/she killed his wife and that it was most gruesome and he/she deserves to pay a debt to sociality. That not with standing we as people are more the sum of our parts. Meaning we are basically biological peaty dishes. If you known anything about biology then you should known that we as humans are a cocktail of hormones. Just like our hormones effect our psychical sex they also effect our brain sex, sometimes these two don't match and when this happens you get someone like this person here who may have started life as a man simple because of physical sex but realized at some point that their brain sex didn't match and then dispute being stuck in a sociality that tries to forbid change or is to misinformed to understand beyond black and white. They make a change that they known is necessary.

So how about you and the rest of the arm chair doctors do a little research before you go shooting off your mouths and have a little knowledge about what you blabby about. We all must live our life's as we see fit and no one has the right to judge any other free born american or how they live their life. Lastly let me say that while I think this person is serving a life sentence and will NEVER be released, that said that means the state is duty bound to pay for ALL medically necessary treatment, and since it has already been ruled by a judge that this surgeries is medically necessary then the conversation here is pretty much mute.

That he is not getting out of prison 6 months from now to see about his sex reassignment is his doing not mine, when he decided to be a criminal maybe he should have stolen a car instead of almost cut a womans head off. No no hell no I don't want to pay for it. If you can't understand that I say let him out and let him live next to you.

He can and should remain in a segregated housing unit with the rest of "the girls" IE, the supercharged effeminates who cannot be released to general population. Let him finish out his term as a male. When he's released, if he hasn't flipped back to being a male trapped inside a male body, then he can get his reassignment. Prison medical funds should be used for the population, not eaten up by a cruel and callous murderer's proclivities.
