Idaho Ordered To Pay For Pedophile Sex Offender’s Gender Reassignment Surgery

The state of Idaho has been ordered by the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to pay for a prison inmate's gender reassignment surgery.

Adree Edmo, 31, is currently incarcerated at the Idaho State Correctional Institution after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy at a 2012 house party. The same year, he was diagnosed with gender dysphoria

For the past seven years, the prison has provided Edmo with hormone therapy. Now, Edmo wants his penis turned into a vagina – and Idaho taxpayers get to pay for it, according to the Washington Examiner

"Hormone therapy has not completely alleviated Edmo’s gender dysphoria," the court ruled – adding that his penis continued to cause him distress.

"Edmo testified that she feels 'depressed, embarrassed, [and] disgusted' by her male genitalia and that this is an 'everyday reoccurring thought.', and that Edmo had bought underwear "to keep, in Edmo's words, her 'disgusting penis' out of sight."

After describing in graphic detail Edmo's multiple attempts to self-castrate, the court argued that failing to provide gender reassignment surgery at taxpayer expense would be a violation of the Eighth Amendment's prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. "We apply the dictates of the Eighth Amendment today in an area of increased social awareness: transgender health care," the court wrote in its conclusion. "We are not the first to speak on the subject, nor will we be the last."

"They certainly would treat a prisoner with cancer, they treat a prisoner with diabetes, or other chronic conditions," Edmo's lawyer, Deborah Ferguson, told local CBS affiliate KBOI. "So, we have a medically recognized condition that's very treatable and we have been trying to get her the treatment that she very much needs." -Washington Examiner

Idaho Gov. Brad Little (R) says that the state will appeal the decision with the US Supreme Court. 

"The court's decision is extremely disappointing," said Little, adding "The hardworking taxpayers of Idaho should not be forced to pay for a convicted sex offender's gender reassignment surgery when it is contrary to the medical opinions of the treating physician and multiple mental health professionals."
