NH DHHS proposes taxpayer funding of sex change surgery

by Steve MacDonald

Burning USS Raleigh on NH State FlagBreaking news from Girard at Large,

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services has proposed to eliminate the Medicaid rule that prohibits the program from funding sex reassignment surgeries.  Disturbingly, while the proposed rule change hasn’t even been heard yet, Girard at Large has obtained a letter sent by the department directly to a minor child enrolled in the NH Healthy Families program.  The child to whom this letter was addressed is 11 years old.

According to information contained on the department’s Rulemaking Notice Form:

This proposal amends the rule, by deleting paragraph (g), to remove the categorical prohibition of coverage of gender reassignment surgery.

Taxpayer funded sexual reassignment surgery. I wonder who’ll get behind that?

Before anyone raises their hand Rich has some questions you’ll have to be able to answer.

  • Does the state actually intend to allow and pay for sex change surgeries on pre-pubescent children?
  • Will the state allow and pay for sex change surgeries on adolescent children who have not reached the age of majority?
  • If so, will they do it with our without parental consent?
  • Will parents be prevented from knowing their children are considering sex change surgeries, or from having the surgery until after the fact because of the state’s desire to “protect” a child’s “privacy rights?”

The Democrats approved abortion without parental notification in New Hampshire and fought tooth and nail to prevent it ever being required for minors because that is what their abortion lobby masters required.

Same deal here, especially with money pouring in from the LGBTQGOFU lobby using Trans-rights (which are rights until they choose not to be) as another progressive mule.

It’s what they do. It’s all they do.

Rich also reminds us that the story is developing. I think I’ll just say it’s progressing.

And one final note to pass along.

A public hearing on the matter is scheduled for August 24th.  Exact details are contained within the Rulemaking Notice Form.

That ought to be a hoot!
