AP Exclusive: Mass. inmate lauds sex-change ruling
Wolf’s ruling prompted an outcry among some legislative leaders, who say Kosilek isn’t entitled to the taxpayer-funded surgery.
Kosilek tells The Associated Press in a recent phone interview from prison that gender-identity disorder is a “valid medical condition,” though she knows some don’t view it that way. She says she’s entitled to medical treatment, just like other inmates.
Kosilek was named Robert when married to Cheryl Kosilek and was convicted of her 1990 murder.
