Sex-reassignment expenses were not excluded from the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2018 (“NDAA”). It is a threat to our national security to shrink our national defense funds in order to pay for sex-reassignment expenses.

7.24.17 – FROM FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL – TONY PERKINS
A couple of weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2018 (“NDAA”) without incorporating a policy that ensures that limited military resources are not be used for sex-reassignment surgery and other gender transition efforts for service members.
This week, the House will vote on the Make America Secure Appropriations Act, which will provide a large increase in funding for the Department of Defense (“DOD”).
Taxpayer dollars need to be protected from funding sex-change surgery and hormone therapy efforts intended to change a person’s gender, which are non-essential…
If these direct and indirect costs are all included, the total cost rises to $3.7 billion over ten years.
Consider some examples of what that money could buy instead:
new Destroyer for the Navy — $3.5 Billion
22 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Planes — $166.7 M each
116 Chinook Helicopters — $31.8 Million each
3,700 Tomahawk missiles — $1 million each
Spending billions of dollars on sex-reassignment surgeries and hormones when the military has other priorities that would actually ensure its effectiveness in war, and America’s safety is irresponsible.
Active duty service members, whose gender transition efforts will undermine their deployability and military service, should be prohibited from having taxpayer-funded hormone therapy and sex-reassignment surgery.
Increasing funding for the Department of Defense while taxpayers are on the hook for sex-reassignment surgery and hormone therapy intended to change a person’s gender is a distraction from the military’s purpose and undermines readiness, recruitment, and retention…
