The federal government is considering an application from the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons to make the taxpayer fund the mutilation of perfectly healthy body parts.
They are wanting Medicare to cover double mastectomies when there is nothing wrong with the breast tissue, and castration on perfectly healthy males.
These are very serious surgeries with major risks and are being requested by people confused about their gender. Most of whom would recover from their delusions if given some time and particularly the right help.
These surgeries will never change the recipient’s sex or deal with the underlying issues.
These procedures are about mimicking the opposite sex. Not one of them will succeed in making a person become the opposite sex. It is cruel to lie to people. It is cruel to perform irreversible procedures on people that will render them sterile, unable to achieve sexual function and still not deal with the psychological issues that cause people to reject reality.
The taxpayer should not be funding these barbaric and unnecessary surgeries.
Please send a clear message to our Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and let him know that the taxpayer should not be funding this evil.
