Transsexual killer asks court to force government to pay for operation
A female inmate serving time in a Fraser Valley men's prison is demanding Corrections Canada approve her sex-change operation — and pay for it.
In an application filed in the Federal Court of Canada, Katherine Anne Johnson, 61, says the operation to remove her penis — a "penectomy" — has been unreasonably delayed by Correctional Service of Canada. Johnson also demands to be transferred to a women's prison to keep her safe from attacks from other inmates.

The undeclared war to ENDA our liberty
Massive spending and the federal power grab are driving the brave talk of dispatching the scoundrels and restoring constitutional government. I hope and pray that it happens.
But lost amid the outrage is the radical social agenda that Obama, Pelosi, Kennedy, and Reid are foisting on the nation with media complicity. If enacted, it will destroy any chance of restoring long-term fiscal sanity because it will sunder marriage and family, where self-governing, productive citizens are born and raised.
Obama has promised the sky to homosexual activists and the abortion lobby and has moved quickly toward that end. On July 16, the Senate voted for a "hate crimes" bill that will lay the foundation for crushing freedom of speech, religion, and association with regard to sexual morality. The healthcare scheme is rife with opportunities for exotic entitlements like tax-funded abortion and even sex-change operations.
