Convicted killer will NOT receive $20,000 sex-change surgery paid for by taxpayers after court overturns controversial ruling

Michelle (Robert) Kosilek

A federal appeals court today overturned a controversial ruling ordering Massachusetts prison officials to provide taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery for an inmate convicted of murder.

Michelle Kosilek, born Robert Kosilek, has already received hormone treatments, psychotherapy and electrolysis while serving a life sentence for strangling to death her wife, Cheryl, in 1990.

But she has continued to wage a protracted legal battle for the $20,000 full genital reconstruction treatment she says is necessary to relieve the mental anguish caused by gender-identity disorder.

While imprisoned, she has tried to commit suicide twice, as well as attempting to castrate herself…

Why was it even considered?

  • Maggat

    Tried to commit suicide two times, well keep trying.

    • Ottawa Eyes

      If you can’t commit suicide then why would you want to mutilate yourself instead?

      Most who undergo the change later want it reversed!

  • Surele Surele

    If at first you don’t succeed, keep on trying. Maybe someone can help?

  • BG

    Why is anyone even doing this person the courtesy of calling him “her”?

    • Maggat

      ‘it’ would seem to be a little more relevant.

  • DVult

    It’s only $3.93 for a cigar cutter which would do the job just fine.

  • rufusrastasjohnsonbrown

    Sharp knife , liquid bandage !

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    Is this the same asshole who tried to use this defense:
    I’m not guilty because I was a man when I killed her.
    I am a woman now and therefore I am a different person.

    go to jail in Middle East..1st try will work

  • BillyHW

    It’s a madhouse!

  • Alain

    He has already cost tax payers far too much money with all the special treatments, which should never have been allowed in the first place. Throw him in with the general population of a male max prison and let the chips fall where they fall. The death penalty would have saved both the tax payers and him a lot of waste and suffering.

  • dingo ate my baby

    its prison! WTF?
    if your in prison and you want a sex change then they should give you a diy kit
    duct tape a cork a knife and a taco
    because thats all you deserve
    they should have just let him kill himself
