Manning sues government over hormone therapy...

http://cnn.it/1v6S2nK

Chelsea Manning, convicted of espionage and imprisoned at Fort Leavenworth, has filed a lawsuit in federal court, claiming she "has been denied access to medically necessary treatment" for her gender disorder.

The inmate once known as Bradley Manning announced in August 2013, the day after her court sentencing, that she is female. Manning is suing to follow grooming standards such as growing her hair longer and using cosmetics, and to receive hormone treatment "in order to express her female gender," said the suit filed Tuesday in district court in Washington.

1. Meanwhile we have combat vets who are commiting suicide while waiting

 

For the medical treatment they were promised and earned while serving in the military.

Maybe when that caseload is caught up they can consider her request.
