Court Rules Taxpayers To Pay For Sex Offender’s Gender Reassignment Surgery – Gov. Vows To Appeal

2k views

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the state of Idaho must provide gender confirmation surgery to a convicted sex offender, a man who thinks he's a woman.

Adree Edmo is currently housed at a men's prison by the Idaho Department of Corrections - but he may not be at the "mens" prison for long.

KIVI-TV reports that Edmo is set to be the first transgender inmate in the country to receive gender reassignment surgery through a court order.

The judges ruled that not providing the surgery would be a violation of the Eighth Amendment.

According to KIVI: 

Edmo, who has been living in a men's prison, was born male but identifies as a woman. She is incarcerated at Idaho State Correctional Center, a 2,166-bed men’s prison south of Boise. 

Edmo is serving a sentence of three to ten years for sexual abuse of a child under 16 years of age in Bannock County. The sentence will be satisfied on July 3, 2021.

 

Idaho Governor Brad Little issued the following statement in response to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision:

“The court’s decision is extremely disappointing. The hardworking taxpayers of Idaho should not be forced to pay for a convicted sex offender’s gender reassignment surgery when it is contrary to the medical opinions of the treating physician and multiple mental health professionals. I intend to appeal this decision to the U.S Supreme Court. We cannot divert critical public dollars away from the higher priorities of keeping the public safe and rehabilitating offenders.”
