NY Medicaid to Cover 'Puberty Blockers,' Transgender Surgery for Kids
The left seems to wrongly claim the mantle of science a lot these days (see Climate Expert: Global Warming is Far from 'Settled Science'...). When it comes to furthering their narrative, science tends to get thrown out the window with the unwanted babies. One can't help but notice that their ideology circumvents things like facts and reality on a regular basis. Small details. For instance, calling a blue-armpitted swamp heifer "beautiful" doth not a pretty lady make. Speaking of making ladies, liberal New York is on a quest to help transgender kids... By offering health coverage for necessities such as boob jobs. Because of course.
But that's not all. Apparently New York plans to insure a lengthy lineup of "vital care" for tiny trans tots...
Twelve states and Washington, D.C., cover transition-related health care under Medicaid for transgender people. In 2014, Oregon became the first state to cover puberty blockers for youths under Medicaid, and California's also ordered to cover care related to gender transition.
New York is the latest to grapple with the issue... Judge Jed Rakoff ruled that Medicaid must cover procedures the state previously called "cosmetic," including breast augmentation and tracheal shaving.
The New York State Department of Health filed a proposed rule that extend[s] its Medicaid coverage to treating indivduals under 18. The department intends to move forward Dec. 5.
The recent change in New York "is a great thing for transgender young people," Kim Forte of Legal Aid Society Said.
According to New York, transgender chitlins will be thanking their lucky stars for the opportunity to filet their genitalia. Fond memories. Like learning how to drive.
This is just one of the progressive changes New York has made recently (see 'My Body, Your Tax Dollar?' NY de Blasio Signs Law Mandating 'Free' Tampons...). Helping pre-teens curb stomp the natural process of puberty was the next step for them, naturally. For the children's sake.
The problem here is an obvious one. Almost as obvious as the penis hiding under Caitlyn Jenner's dress. Still, it's not so obvious to New York, or California, or Washington D.C., or any of the ever-growing number of states pushing for these changes. While conservatives are tarred and feathered for "not caring," the left busies itself with state-backed child abuse. Because it's the tolerant thing to do, of course. Thanks, "progress..."
