“Hormone therapy”…on the HOUSE!
Liberals have no qualms at all about spending other people’s money, that is but one of many reasons that big government is a problem. But hormone therapy for a JAILED TRANSGENDER that we ALL have to pay for?!
Just when you think liberals can’t get any nuttier, they “exceed expectations”. Call me crazy, but I think that if you choose to change genders, the expense should be on YOU and YOU alone.
What’s next? “Free” breast implants, nose-jobs and face-lifts? Sure why not? It’s just human nature not be as frugal, and wise with money that you didn’t earn, but remember, “Liberals don’t think long-term, just whatever makes them feel morally superior at the moment.”
After carefully considering the recommendation that (hormone treatment) is medically appropriate and necessary, and weighing all associated safety and security risks presented, I approve adding (hormone treatment) to Inmate Manning’s treatment plan,” Col. Erica Nelson, the commandant of the Fort Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks in Kansas, wrote in a Feb. 5 memo.
Formerly named Bradley Manning, the soldier was convicted of sending classified documents to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. Manning is serving a 35-year prison sentence and is eligible for parole in about seven years.
At Manning’s trial, her attorneys argued she had been disillusioned by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and believed the release of the documents, including diplomatic cables and military reports, should be seen by the public.
Manning sued the federal government for access to the treatment. The Army referred questions about Manning to the Department of Justice, which has been handling the case. Nicole Navas, a Justice Department spokeswoman, declined to comment, saying the government’s position is detailed in court filings.
The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents Manning in the case, did not have an immediate comment on the Army’s memo.
