Inmate Bradley Manning, currently serving a 35 year prison sentence on an espionage-related conviction, is going to get his sex change, thanks to the US military and the American taxpayer:
Chelsea Manning, a transgender soldier imprisoned for leaking classified information to WikiLeaks, says she is ending a hunger strike after the U.S. Army agreed to allow her to get medical treatment for her gender dysphoria.
She began the hunger strike last week to protest her treatment at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., vowing to persist until she was treated better.
The medical treatment will begin with the surgery that was recommended by her psychologist in April, the American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement.
To date, the ACLU says no transgender individual has received gender-affirming surgical treatment in prison despite medical recommendations for such care in prisons across the country.
A taxpayer-funded sex change for a jailed traitor. What a country. Basically, America has become Sweden.
