California Agrees to Fund the Country’s First Inmate Sex-Reassignment Surgery

The murderer can finally feel complete. Don’t think I can say the same for his victim and the family members.

From Yahoo: A 57-year-old convicted killer serving a life sentence in California became the first U.S. inmate to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery, the prisoner’s attorneys confirmed Friday to The Associated Press.

California prison officials agreed in August 2015 to pay for the surgery for Shiloh Heavenly Quine, who was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom and has no possibility of parole.

Quine’s case led the state to become the first to set standards that will allow other transgender to inmates apply to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery. It also prompted a federal magistrate to require California to provide transgender female inmates housed in men’s facilities with more female-oriented items such as nightgowns, scarves and necklaces.

“For too long, institutions have ignored doctors and casually dismissed medically necessary and life-saving care for transgender people just because of who we are,” said Kris Hayashi, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, which represents Quine and other transgender inmates. Completion of the surgery not only fulfills a landmark legal settlement but marks a victory “for all transgender people who have ever been denied the medical care we need,” Hayashi said.

Quine will be moved to a women’s prison after the operation, which was performed at a hospital in San Francisco, her attorneys said. Quine told a prison psychologist who recommended her him for the operation that it would bring a “drastic, internal completeness.”

She He expects it will end a dysfunction and depression so deep that she he tried to cut and hang herself himself in prison five times, most recently in 2014 when she he was initially told she he could not have the operation. Quine said she he tried unsuccessfully to amputate her his genitalia when she was about 19, three years before she he went to prison and roughly the same time she he tried self-medicating with illegally purchased female hormones.

She He and an accomplice are serving life terms for kidnapping and fatally shooting 33-year-old Shahid Ali Baig in downtown Los Angeles in February 1980, stealing $80 and his car during a drug- and alcohol-fueled rampage. Baig left behind two young daughters and a son.

Joyce Hayhoe, a spokeswoman for the federal court-appointed official who controls California’s prison medical care, said the cost of sex-reassignment surgeries could approach $100,000, including procedures and medications before and after the operation. Attorneys at the Oakland-based Transgender Law Center said that figure is exaggerated.

A portion of the state’s expense will generally be reimbursed by the federal government, Hayhoe said. The percentage varies depending on individual circumstances, but it can cover up to 95 percent of allowable charges.

  1. California is cursed by the useful idiots who keep voting Democrat. I feel sorry for the Californians who didn’t vote Democrat and are stuck there.

    As for Shiloh Heavenly Quine, the only comfort I take from his using taxpayer dollars to mutilate himself is to regard his voluntary castration as part of the punishment for his crimes.

  2. NOPE, NOPE, NOPE……there should be NO Federal monies be given for such stupidness! If this guy wants to kill himself, then let his will be done! One less criminal to support! There is just a whole lot wrong with this picture when there are people who are homeless and starving!

    • While it is true that there are homeless and starving people . . . why not donate this same 100,000 to the children of the man he killed. They have had to live their whole lives without a father.

      As far as worrying about his five failed attempts at taking his life . . . if that was his wish, he should have been allowed to off himself.

      I for one am dying to know how the female inmates will react to having him among their population.

  4. Unbelievable! I really don’t even know what to say anymore. This man is sentenced to life. What difference should it make what gender he/she is? It’s not like he’s getting out anytime soon! Does DOC really think that the women inmates are going to accept him/her after surgery? This crap is getting so out of hand it’s absurd!

    • As you’ve written what I would have, Hollowpoint [my favourite rounds!], I won’t comment except to say be assured that the girls in Maximum will deal with him inside of an hour, once he’s in General Population. That’s truly God’s justice, as it will be done by people who were damaged by his ilk. PUKE!

  14. Wait a minute: “…a victory “for all transgender people who have ever been denied the medical care we need,” is an oxymoron, as NO TRANS PERSON NEEDS that kind of medical attention. It is NOT necessary except to placate trans ideology. BS, BS, and BS, all paid for by people who are repelled by the idea. Where is the justice in that?

    • And don’t you need “medical care” only if you have an illness? No illness = no treatment. Sounds like this surgery is elective…

      • And if the surgeon took the Hippocratic Oath to ‘do no harm’, didn’t s/he harm the patient by removing what was a birthright? The whole subject and discussion is crazy-making to my weak brain.

        • Joseph . . . I’m 100% with you on this one. It really is a crazy-making situation to anyone born after about 1960! I just cannot wrap any degree of understanding around it. If a joker is assigned to prison for the rest of HIS life, he should not be rewarded by the expenditure of this kind of money to appease what can only be described as “a mental defect” on his part!

    • A lot of the Transgender news we are seeing is smoke, and BS, but there is a fire that is not going away!
      1. The amount of cases where the doctor and parents have to make a decision at birth is increasing due to genital defects.
      2. Environmental toxicants, involving those that mimic hormones used in plastics is just one source of the problem.
      3. Plus their is an increase in Hypospades showing-up in baby boys in the USA and Europe. A friend of mine who is a nurse told me she had seen an increase in Hypospades operations in just the hospital where she worked, and she was alarmed!
