HHS OKs Sex Changes

What’s next?

Tony Perkins: “HHS has ruled that it’s ‘no longer reasonable’ to expect older Americans to pay for their own sexual reassignments. Instead, it now recognizes the surgery as a ‘medically necessary’ and ‘effective’ treatment for people who can’t come to grips with their own biological gender. … If the government will pay for this, why not plastic surgery for people who don’t feel as old as their age? As if people couldn’t be more disgusted, the double standard remains. While President Obama is busy financing senior sex changes, wounded veterans are dying for lack of medical care. If you want a snapshot of this administration’s priorities, that’s it. Making matters worse, the move only paves the way for gender reassignment surgeries to be a routinely covered benefit – like abortion. … Americans are free to disfigure their bodies – but they aren’t free to ask taxpayers to foot the bill.”
