This story http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1343025/Transsexual-refused-8-000-breasts-NHS-AFTER-60-000-gender-swap-surgery-wins-court-battle.html is hard to believe. A man who wanted breast implants received over $15,000. in free legal aid to force his shared primary care trust provider to divert $12,000. from cancer patients to pay for his breast augmentation. And he WON. He will now get the larger fake breasts he wanted, paid for by taxpayers. “‘Now I can get on with the rest of my life and stop spending days thinking about killing myself” said the unemployed man, “… friends have said I’m a lot happier and more relaxed.’
