News that an uninsured transgender woman in Colorado was denied a free mammogram has prompted two advocacy groups to petition the federal government for equality in screening.
That is irrational discrimination, plain and simple, said Harper Jean Tobin, director of policy for the National Center for Transgender Equality.
Breast-cancer screenings save lives and should be available to all women, period, added Shane Snowdon, director of the Human Rights Campaigns health and aging program.
President Obamas 2010 Affordable Care Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, including on the basis of gender identity or sex stereotyping, they wrote Friday in a letter to Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

These men are given feminizing hormones that turn male breast meat into functioning female breasts. All this gender reassignment stuff is a slap in the face to nature. I’m surprised there is not more negative consequences than just breast cancer.
I say we mash more than their boobies in that.
I’d expect all sorts of cancer risks. Not just breast cancer.
But it’s not like they have ovaries, a uterus or any other girl parts so it’s not the SAME risk as a normal woman, obviously.
Prostrate surgery under Obamacare ? they hand you a cloths hanger and tell you to yank it out your self.
That's a Man!!
Barney Frank would be pleased to be the director of that program.
Just fertility treatments including IVF.
Let my people go!
This sounds like this piece by South Park-
If true, then lesbians should demand nothing less than prostate exams.
We’re living in one giant loony bin.
What a cluster f**k...
The use of these female enhancing hormones may produce the breast they want, but there are trade-offs: prostrate cancer, heart disease, blood clots, type II diabetes, pituitary tumors, loss of libido and other slaps in the face by nature. If their gender reassignment has turned them into an ugly female, they risk living a lonely and unloved life that they would not have had as a male.
Maybe these guys should talk to some real women who’ve actually had to deal with breast cancer. Maybe then they’ll decide they like being men after all.
To #15> You say the country is suffering a terrible care of it (”electile dysfunction”).
Let’s translate that into everyday English:
* Our country is full of pricks” (we know that)
* The GOP is led by limp pricks” (That’s not the name of a German rock band). Boehner didn’t get his name for being a straight-up guy.
* The Democrats are syphillitic pricks who are infecting the country with marxism and stupidity.
* Obama is the father of modern marxist America, because he’s been successfully screwing the American people since 1995.
As for the Democrat women, .....!
LOL Well played!
The GOP should get free testicle exams. The cost would be minimal.
did I wake up in the comic pages or what?
