I saw this on LifeSite:
Obama administration may add taxpayer-funded sex-change operations to ObamaCare, Medicare, Medicaid
DES MOINES, IA, December 12, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is one of the most controversial laws in America because of its mandates, taxes, and coverage of elective abortions with a $1 surcharge. Now, there may be another reason for debate on the law’s merits: taxpayer-funded “gender reassignment” surgery.
The law may fund costs related to gender reassignment, according to Andi Medici in FederalTimes.com.
Since 1981, federal law has barred federal tax dollars from paying for “transsexual surgery” through programs like Medicare and Medicaid. On December 2, the HHS Department’s appeals board decided that the “National Coverage Determination” should be reconsidered, opening the door to taxpayer-funded sex-change operations.
Medici adds that Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, conventionally known as ObamaCare, no longer explicitly states that the federal subsidies will not require coverage for transgender-related surgeries.
Since the ACA does prevent “discrimination” on the basis of gender identity, however, and the federal government is publicly revisiting a 1981 law preventing federal coverage of “gender reassignment” surgery and related costs, it is possible the federal government will be covering those costs under the ACA, Medicare, Medicaid, and the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program.
After some nanoseconds of thought, I think I don’t want to pay for mutilations of this kind.
Even if this ghastly thing doesn’t come to pass, there is packed within this phrase an evil that is so diabolical that it … well… we watch closely the signs of the times, right? It is incredible how fast things are devolving. It might seem trivial by comparison, but even the recent, multiplying attacks on sports, on football and the rules of baseball, bear the marks of a rampaging destroyer of the natural law.
Again the image of the last day of Numenor comes to mind. Sunk in immortality, effeminacy and materialism, Numenoreans brought down upon themselves the destruction of their realm.
You can almost see the sea receding by our shore before the coming of the great wave.
