Army to grant Chelsea Manning gender transition surgery: report

This case in particular simply highlights how bad our military has deteriorated under bad leadership…a traitor and a prisoner being provided gender transition surgery on our dime!  Any level of gender transition should not be paid for with public funds, in any forum, military or civilian…and especially in our prison systems!  In my mind, it is akin to public funding of abortion!

And once this kind of stuff gets going in a society, it is hard, and probably even impossible, to reverse the laws and regulations associated with it!  Just look at the failed Obamacare debacle, or anything else President Obama has laid his hands on!  Think that Republicans, were they to win the Oval Office and retain Congress, would undo anything major?  Doubt it…it would not be on “their” agenda, because it is on ours!

Rome is burning folks!  And it’s hot!

The Army will be providing Chelsea Manning with gender transition surgery, Buzzfeed News reported.

“I am unendingly relieved that the military is finally doing the right thing. I applaud them for that. This is all that I wanted – for them to let me be me,” Manning, who is serving a 35-year prison sentence for violating the Espionage Act, said in a statement provided by her lawyers to Buzzfeed News.

But Manning questioned why it has taken so long.

“Also, why were such drastic measures needed? The surgery was recommended back in April 2016. The recommendations for my hair length were back in 2014,” Manning said in the statement.

Her psychologist recommended in April Manning receive the surgery.

“In any case,” Manning said, “I hope this sets a precedent for the thousands of trans people behind me hoping they will be given the treatment they need.”

Manning reportedly learned she would be receiving the surgery after the military decided the Department of Defense’s instruction instruction for “In-Service Transition” was applicable to her, according to Buzzfeed.

An army spokesman told Buzzfeed the Army could not “discuss the medical needs of individuals.”

A lawyer for Manning, the ACLU’s Chase Strangio, said in a statement the government thankfully “recognized its constitutional obligation to provide Chelsea with the medical care that she needs.”

“We hope that they will act without delay to ensure that her suffering does not needlessly continue,” Strangio said in a statement.

Until the surgery, Manning will still have to keep her hair short, a requirement under the male grooming standards. She also still has a hearing scheduled late this month relating to charges from her suicide attempt earlier this summer.

Strangio said Manning’s lawyers will continue to “move forward with our litigation on the hair issue” and hopes that “all charges related to her suicide attempt and the investigation that followed are dropped.”

    Actually… one might argue a compelling public need for abortion… in cases where society will bear the costs of raising offspring of rape/incest/”13 going on 18″ prostitutes…

    BUT… how can we violate with impunity so-o-o-o many existing laws on funding the reality of psychotic episodes of people simply needing to get a life with the equipment the Creator provided — along with their Unalienable Rights??

    HollyWeird trolls the ‘normalcy’ of all this Tent of Many Colours perversion…

    IT AIN’T NORMAL!!

    WHY ARE WE DEMANDING OUR SHEEPLE OF AMERIKA to …

    … MAKE IT SO… {with all due deference to Gene Roddenberry’s original Commie StarTrek themes of One Universe Peace Open Borders All Species!!

    Taxpayers should be confident in not EVER paying for one case of ELECTIVE SURGERY…

    … for those in Prison…

    … or simply on the Public Dole!!

    How ‘progressive’ are the Medical community seeking such ill-gotten funds??

    About one half of all ‘medical expenses’ in America…
    … are for thangs we didn’t include in our Health Insurance contracts just four decades ago!!

    How can a society allow the largest ‘drug groups’ to be non-FDA regulated items at your local Publix / Costco / Walgreen / CVS / etc… clearly labelled:

    “” These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. “”

    REALLY?? Is that why we funded the Center Complimentary and Alternative Medicine in 2000… to assure within our National Institutes of Health we were providing citizens with their ‘right to know IF their Vitamins / Minerals / Supplements / etc. were actually of value in improving their health??

    I filed a complaint with the IG for NIH … CAM only privided “final results” for ten of over 1,200 grant funded MD Studies of our everyday SKU numbers …
    … I was officially told they would audit my complaint… BUT that it would of course not publicly be released…

    CAM changed its name to Center for Integrative and Alternative Medicine two years ago in response to that secret IG ‘investigation’ into funding DNC donor MD’s with no requirement to report their findings!

    DNC – DemonKKKrat Nationale Commies… fare worse than Putin or even Josef Stalin in their criminal activities within the ruling junta class!!
