It was reported on January 6, 2017 by the Associated Press that a 57-year-old convicted killer serving a life sentence in California became the first U.S. inmate to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery, the prisoner’s attorneys confirmed Friday.
Shiloh Heavenly Quine, was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom and has no possibility of parole.
According to the report, the daughter of Quine’s victim said she objects to inmates getting taxpayer-funded surgery that is not readily available to non-criminals, regardless of the cost.
“My dad begged for his life,” said Farida Baig, who tried unsuccessfully to block Quine’s surgery through the courts. “It just made me dizzy and sick. I’m helping pay for his surgery; I live in California. It’s kind of like a slap in the face.”
While this is a bill that California Taxpayers will have to bear, do not think that this will not be coming to your state. This is just the first, and will set a precedence, so there will be many more to come.
Many will laugh and say, “only liberal California”, but make no mistake, this will definitely spread throughout the entire country.
