I am sure all the usual suspects in here will be lining up to tell us all why yes, we should be paying for a pervert's sex change while she-he-it is in prison... http://www.bostonherald.com/news/regional/general/view.bg?articleid=1076891 Judge grants hearing for killer seeking better sex change care in prison A judge today granted a hearing to a convicted murderer who says sheâ€™s being denied medical treatment in prison as she awaits a ruling in her bid for sex change surgery. U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ordered a March 13 hearing in the case of Michelle Kosilek, formerly known as Robert. Kosilek asked for the hearing after claiming sheâ€™d been denied hair removal treatment and access to a specialist to discuss testosterone levels. She said as a result her body is becoming more masculine. Wolf also ordered new Department of Correction Commissioner Harold Clarke to attend the hearing, in case he wanted him to testify. Kosilek sued the Department of Correction in 2000, saying its refusal to allow her to have sex-change surgery violated the Eighth Amendment protection against cruel and unusual punishment.
