The thought of our legal system entertaining the possibility of granting a gender sex change for this inmate on tax payer's money is extremely disturbing. This person has been incarcerated for murder. It appears that only AFTER this person was in prison did he claim a gender disorder. It appears that he originally claimed self-defense in a domestic argument, in which he experienced hot tea spilled on his genitals and ultimately, strangled his wife.

As far as I am concerned, the only mental health problem this individual has is the guilt of sinful killing of another human being. Let him take that guilt up with his higher power. He claims he will commit suicide if he does not receive a sex change. How far is the legal system going to allow his threat of suicide to obtain whatever else he will want while serving a life sentence for murder. Every time an inmate cries anxiety and depression, we tax payers should pay for his wants and wills? He gave up his freedom of want and will the day he murdered another human being.

Our Nations' government (and politicians) can write laws and lobby for abortion rights, gay marriages, and demand Obama healthcare, but these same policy makers cannot write a law on elective surgery for prison inmates that cost tax payers thousands of dollars? Who is paying for this dude's defense attorney? How does an inmate afford legal counsel on this matter short of more tax payer dollars? What attorney even thinks this is right?

I am a woman that has to shave the hair on my body and/or look for every product on the market to remove hair from my body. Will the Federal Government please set aside billions of dollars for us hairy women to subsidize our hair removal costs.

The Court should never have approved female hormone therapy for this inmate to begin with. This dude (who was born and identified at birth as a male) who entered into marriage with a woman and bore a child and then killed his wife, needs deeper psychiatrist therapy, rather than giving into his woes of a sex change surgery.

Send him to a mental health hospital for a while, and return him to jail for the crime he committed... murder.

Speechless.......words cannot describe this decision. Pretty much on the same messed up scale as death penalty.

All criminal knows how to work the legal system. Heck even terrorist knows it.

This murderer is laughing at you judge you just don't know it.
Murder wife, goes to prison, gets roof over head, 3 meals a day, health benefits, tv, excercise time, legal representation for free.
Judge you clearly thought about this murderers pain and suffering. Have you thought about his murdered wife last minute of life? Can you imagine the pain and suffering the victim went through?

This is not a medical necessity! As long as a prisoner has proper medical care, why should w be paying for this? My insurance wouldn't, would yours?

taxpayers money should be used on more important things and not a murderer who feels they deserve special things.

I'm not a legal expert but I'm pretty sure that all the plaintiff and their legal representitive have to prove is that there is enough precedent for their contention. If they show this I believe the courts hands are tied and it must go forward. The victim (is ex-wife Cheryl) and all the suffering he caused those who cared for her, are not part of this process. To me, that this "person" who committed murder is even allowed to claim this "gender" crisis as reason for the request for surgery. What needs to happen is for each sate's legislative body put forth a bill that those who commit violent crimes are entitled to only the care needed to provide a normal existence i.e. food, shelter, medical care and protection from violence if necessary by isolation. To me, all perpetrators of violent crimes forfeit their rights to all but necessary care. Things must change, and only is citizen's can make that happen.

This is not medically necessary due to a health issue therefore tax payers should not be liable for that cost.

This murderer has no right to a sex change operation at tax payers expense!
