Congress votes against ban on U.S. military funding of ‘sex change’ surgeries

[It used to be “Join the Navy to see the world” or other reasons for that and other branches of the military; now it’s “Join the military to get transgendered at taxpayer expense”]

Peter LaBarbera

This [July 13, 2017] evening the House of Representatives voted 209 to 214 to defeat [Missouri Republican Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler’s] amendment denying the Pentagon funds for “sex change” surgeries.

Sarah McBride, spokesperson for the LGBT lobby group Human Rights Campaign, reported, “If only three Members of Congress had voted yes instead [i.e., FOR the measure denying taxpayer funding to the Pentagon for transsexual “sex reassignment surgeries”], this dangerous and discriminatory anti-transgender amendment would have passed.”

More than 20 Republicans joined the Democrats in voting to defeat the measure. Pro-life Catholic Illinois Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski, who is pro-life, also voted on the side of the LGBT lobby to defeat the amendment.

  1. These people are so #@!&! insane.
    Hey, Congress, let’s do a little exercise in rational thought, shall we?
    Ok, I know that’s too much for you, but don’t worry, I’ll be doing all the work.
    Now, let’s assume the most favorable view of transgenders.
    1) A transgender is born that way.
    2) To be trans is therefore natural, and actually good.

    We’re going to be *really* indulgent here, and just not mention that, if transgenders are born good, because “God made them that way”, there should be no need to “change” their sex with an unnatural operation.
    …Oh, I guess I just did mention it.
    Anyway, moving right along…
    Let’s assume trans people have a problem in that they are trapped in a body of the wrong sex.
    That is very sad, and something should be done about it.
    But WHY am I, the taxpayer, obligated to pay for it?

    If some kid I don’t even know, living in Anytown, U.S.A., is born with, say, one leg shorter than the other, am I obliged to pay for an operation to fix that? Is any other taxpayer thus obliged?

    This country is literally just bat **** crazy.
    We are heading for a total breakdown of society.
