Universal Healthcare Coverage for Trans

Thanks for sharing, that was very informative. I actually called the Ministry of Health as well and they answered some of my questions.

Apparently therapy is covered in many respects but not surgery....

2016-06-14 04:04:34
Fair enough. Is therapy covered for such peoples? I ask because the likelihood of suicide is very high so I had assumed such legislation must of been introduced even if not passed.

Universal Healthcare Coverage for Trans
2016-06-14 03:56:44

2016-06-14 03:36:27

Fair enough, I just want some consistency. I'm not going to deny it is hard to moderate because I do moderate elsewhere. Just try to formulate some orthodoxy that can be understood by all.

The places,...

I stop by occasionally here and there but it is about time something has been said. There is not one iota of consistency when it comes to moderation on this site.

The best and most successful economic system
2016-05-13 09:15:45
That is a theoretical example. If you don't intend to substantiate with facts I have no interest in discussing the matter because that is merely your opinion against mine which leads nowhere.
The best and most successful economic system
2016-05-12 16:01:05
I would argue capitalism is best for individuals. Capitalism allows for the best social mobility. The other "isms" ensure better forms of equality. As I like to say socialism is for people who...
