San Francisco to Offer Free Sex Changes for Uninsured


San Francisco is set to become the first U.S. city to offer free sex-change operations for uninsured transgender residents, CBN News reports. Transgender advocates want mastectomies, genital reconstruction and other surgeries covered under San Francisco's universal health care program, and the city's Health Commission voted Tuesday to create a program to treat people experiencing "mental distress" due to gender-identity issues. Health department officials say the program will take effect late next year after studying the cost and how many people it would serve.
