Joe Biden wants transgender inmates, who may not have a vagina, to have access to an OB/GYN.
During the Democrat Primary season, at an LGBT Forum in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Joe Biden was recorded suggesting that male-to-female prisoners, who are born biologically male and may still have male genitalia depending on whether they chose to have gender reassignment surgery prior to their conviction, deserve to be treated as the gender they declare themselves to be, and thus, should be entitled to see an OB/GYN.
Though obstetrics is defined as “the branch of medicine and surgery concerned with childbirth and the care of women giving birth,” and gynecology is defined as “the branch of physiology and medicine which deals with the functions and diseases specific to women and girls, especially those affecting the reproductive system,” Joe Biden said that transgender inmates deserve to be treated according to their self-defined gender, and should have access to an OB/GYN if requested.
“By the way, in prison, in prison, the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is, not what, in fact, the prison says it is,” Biden declared.
“And in that case, you should be entitled, also, to OB/GYN,” Biden continued, before veering off the unprompted prison discussion and back to the actual question that was asked.
