Transgender woman sues after being denied free breast screening

Transgender woman sues after being denied free breast screening | trans* issues | Scoop.it

"A transgender woman is suing for the right to have free breast cancer screenings after being turned away by a clinic for not being 'genetically female'.

Jennifer Blair, 62, from Colorado, had gender reassignment surgery more than a decade ago and takes a daily dose of doctor-prescribed synthetic oestrogen.

After noticing an unusual breast growth, Ms Blair, who does not have health insurance, went to the Planned Parenthood centre in Denver for a mammogram.

The state-run clinic is funded by the Women's Wellness Connection and offers free cancer screenings for women on low income.

But Ms Blair was shocked to be told she could not have the mammogram because she was not born a woman."

This woman should not have been denied her screening. They should also allow men on low income free screenings. Men get breast cancer too.
