Stop state-funded sex-reassignment surgery for inmates

This petition had 113 supporters

Shiloh Heavenly Quine, a 57-year-old convicted killer serving a life sentence has become the first U.S. inmate to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery. This is ridiculous! Joyce Hayhoe, a spokeswoman for the federal court-appointed official who controls California's prison medical care, said the cost of sex-reassignment surgeries could approach $100,000, including procedures and medications before and after the operation. That kind of money shouldn't be wasted on murderers. It could be used to help many more. Taxpayer money shouldn't be used to give inmates sex-reassignment surgeries.
