State Must Pay for Prisoner’s Sex Change

Posted by Steve Markowitz on September 8, 2012

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more outrageous, a Massachusetts Federal Judge took judicial lunacy to the next level.  U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ordered the state of Massachusetts to pay for a sex-change operation for prisoner Michelle/Mike Kosilek.

In making the ruling the Judge stated that the surgery would be “the only form of adequate medical care” for the prisoner and denying it would violate the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.

Kosilek is serving life in prison without parole for the murder in 1990 of his wife.  Using this Judge’s bizarre logic, why not just let Kosilek out of prison?  Surely similar lame logic could conclude that serving a life term without the possibility of parole is cruel and unusual.

Some conservatives may be surprised to learn that Judge Wolf was a Reagan appointee.  This goes to prove that judicial activism sees no political boundaries.  The Judicial branch’s bizarre activism is eerily reflective of the corruption that fell the Roman Empire
