Waffling Warren Confirms Gender-Reassignment Surgery Is Now A Right

Authored by Kelli Ballard via LibertyNation.com,

What is a right? We often hear politicians running for office standing on their soapboxes and preaching to the masses about individuals’ rights and how they, if elected, will make sure their constituents get what they are owed. The distinction between what is just and what is privileged is blurred, and now more confusing than ever. Prisoners, for example, do have some rights: food, shelter, health care. But, when it comes to medical issues, should the taxpayers be forced to fund transgender reassignment surgery? Apparently, Rep. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) now thinks so.

At a recent LGBTQ town hall meeting, Warren received thundering applause for stating that the gender reassignment surgery should be provided free of charge to transgender prisoners: “gender-affirming surgery,” she said was “important and the appropriate medical care.”

This is a direct about-face from her 2012 statement:

 

“I don’t think it’s a good use of taxpayer dollars.” 

Fauxcahontas backpaddled and asked forgiveness for the earlier statement, saying it had been a “bad answer.”

“I believe that everyone is entitled to medical care and medical care that they need and that includes people who are transgender who – it is the time for them to have gender-affirming surgery.”
