Legislation would stop tax-funded gender reassignment for inmates

Regional News

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WTAJ) — State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz issued a statement on her Inmate Sex Change Prevention Act.

The act would prohibit the Department of Corrections from using taxpayer money for an inmate’s gender-confirmation surgery and/or the use of hormone therapy.

Borowicz says that no less than $60,000 tax dollars go to fund sex-change procedures for any inmate diagnosed with ‘gender dysphoria’ each year.

“Once fully informed, I have no doubt that the majority of hard-working taxpayers, who would be protected by my legislation, will also agree that they do not want any taxes taken from their paychecks to cover the expense of gender-reassignment surgery or hormone therapy for prison inmates.”
