Federal judge allows transgender inmates to receive hormone treatment

The scales of justice
The scales of justice

UNDATED (WSAU) Transgender inmates can receive hormone therapy. A Wisconsin law denying hormone therapy to transgender inmates was deemed unconstitutional by a federal judge. A challenge was issued to the law four years ago by the ACLU and national gay rights group Lambda Legal. Both agencies were helping male inmates who say they are female file the lawsuit.

The district judge said it was cruel to withhold taxpayer-funded treatments from inmates who received them before their prison term. The treatments help a person of one sex become the opposite sex. Some fear the ruling will ultimately lead to taxpayer-funded sex change operations.
