Description

The U.S. Army has approved hormone therapy for Chelsea Manning, who was convicted of leaking national security secrets to Wikileaks, defense officials told NBC News late Thursday. Private Manning revealed her gender identity as a transgender female after being convicted and sentenced to 35 years in the military prison at Leavenworth in July 2013. According to the officials, since Manning has been clinically diagnosed as a transgender and is confined to the military prison, the Army is obligated to provide and pay for her hormone treatments — just as if she was confined to a civilian federal prison. http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/43578946/sc/7/l/0L0Snbcnews0N0Cnews0Cus0Enews0Carmy0Eapproves0Ehormone0Etherapy0Etreatment0Ewikileaker0Echelsea0Emanning0En30A5446/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com
