This time, it’s really not the Much Vaunted National Health Service© at fault, though. The rocket surgeons at Britain’s Equality and Human Rights Commission is suing the Service because it doesn’t pay for the (non-existent) fertility rights of those who choose to change genders (they seem to have no problem paying for the sex-change surgery, however).
The Commission has put the MVNHS© on notice that before the surgery physicians must offer to extract and store ovum and sperm of the
victims patients. Unfortunately, that process hasn’t been a covered expense, and some folks can’t afford it.
One wonders when the British anorexic community will sue to be provided with diet pills.
