    Judge orders California to pay for inmate’s sex change

    A federal judge ruled that the state’s corrections department must provide Michelle-Lael Norsworthy, a transsexual inmate, with sex change surgery.
    SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A federal judge on Thursday ordered California's corrections department to provide a transsexual inmate with sex change surgery, the first time such an operation has been ordered in the state.

    U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco ruled that denying sex reassignment surgery to 51-year-old Michelle-Lael Norsworthy violates her constitutional rights. Her birth name is Jeffrey Bryan Norsworthy.

    The ruling says it would be the second time nationwide that such a surgery has been performed on an inmate, an apparent reference to an inmate who castrated himself in Texas then was given the surgery out of necessity.

    Norsworthy has lived as a woman since the 1990s and has what Tigar termed severe gender dysphoria.

    "The weight of the evidence demonstrates that for Norsworthy, the only adequate medical treatment for her gender dysphoria is SRS," Tigar wrote, referring to sex reassignment surgery.

    He found that the decision by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to deny the procedure was medically unacceptable under the circumstances.

    Corrections officials said they are considering whether to appeal the ruling.

    Attorneys for Norsworthy did immediately comment.

    "This would be a first" for California, said Joyce Hayhoe, a spokeswoman for the federal receiver who controls California prison medical care. The cost to taxpayers for such surgery is uncertain, she said.

    "It's several tens of thousands of dollars, possibly close to $100,000, depending on the circumstances. But It's hard to estimate," Hayhoe said.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this douchebag is in prison, right? His suffering is a good thing.

    "On June 11, 2012, President Obama nominated Tigar to be a United States District Judge for the United States District Court for the Northern District of California."

    How does a person have a constitutional right to be another person?

    So, the judge is saying that the state MUST pay for me to become Aretha Franklin if I choose to do so?

    Liberals...

    This is the bigger problem.

    These liberal activist judges will be there long after obama is out of office. He is stacking the courts with this kind of crap.
