In exchange for real rights as enshrined in the US Constitution, such as our rights to free speech, to bear arms, and to own property that’s ours and not the government’s, moonbat authoritarians offer their own version of “rights” — i.e., special goodies that it’s your right to force someone else to pay for. The latest “right” Airstrip One may offer its subjects is the right for transsexual freakazoids to have artificial breasts affixed with taxpayers’ money:
A transsexual refused breast enlargement surgery on the NHS is to take her [sic] case to the High Court, at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds to the hospital’s budget.
The legally aided gender dysphoria sufferer, who has been living as a woman for over 10 years, says breast augmentation is essential to her [sic] female identity and emotional well-being and the refusal to give her [sic] the op amounts to sex discrimination.
Her [sic] unique test case against the West Berkire Primary Care Trust (PCT), in which the Equality and Human Rights Commission will also be playing a part, is now set for hearing at the High Court on October 20.
The freakazoid in question hasn’t had a choppadickophomy procedure; he just wants to have breasts like a woman because that would, according to his lawyer, give him psychological benefit. The money wasted just dragging this case through court could be spent providing medical care to those who need it, but when the government controls healthcare, resources are allocated on a political basis.
Meanwhile, those with less politically correct medical needs go without treatment under Britain’s socialist system.
An 80-year-old grandmother who doctors identified as terminally ill and left to starve to death has recovered after her outraged daughter intervened.
Hazel Fenton, from East Sussex, is alive nine months after medics ruled she had only days to live, withdrew her antibiotics and denied her artificial feeding. The former school matron had been placed on a controversial care plan intended to ease the last days of dying patients.
Just don’t call it a death panel. Sarah Palin made those up.
In other socialized medicine news, a soldier died after being given cancerous lungs in a transplant operation:
Matthew Millington, 31, died at home in Brown Lees, near Stoke-on-Trent, after receiving the organs from a donor who is believed to have smoked between 30 and 50 roll-up cigarettes a day, an inquest heard.
Following the death, an investigation at Papworth Hospital, in Cambridge, pinpointed a string of problems, including issues with communication, record-keeping and patient handover. It found that a radiographer had failed to highlight the growth of a cancerous tumour.
Maybe the transsexual should think twice about whether he really wants government doctors installing his fake boobs.
