Publicly Funded Reassignment Surgery

The New York Times reported over the weekend that sexual reassignment surgery is now publicly funded in Brazil. A court ruled that such surgeries must be part of a constitutionally guaranteed right to medical care.

Often people wait and save money for years until they can afford these painful and expensive surgeries, but as we saw in Transamerica, the relief felt outweighs the cost. America has a hard enough time convincing the public that health care is deserved, could you imagine the battle for publicly funded reassignment surgery?
