Continuing to advance a progressive socialist agenda, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel proudly announced this week that taxpayers in the City will be required to contribute to the funding of a new so-called “health” benefit: sex reassignment surgery.
It is difficult to see how sex reassignment surgery is a health benefit since gender dysphoria is still considered a mental disorder and since sex reassignment surgery mutilates bodies and renders patients sterile.
Yet, administrators in the City tell us that there are no resources for additional police, no resources to keep schools open and there are certainly resources for a trauma center in Roseland, South Shore or Englewood. How is it that they can find tax dollars for elective surgeries for those confused about their gender?
According to tgender.net and health.costhelper.com, the average cost for a male-to-female reassignment procedure — an elective surgery — averages between $20,000 to $30,000.
