.- After throwing its full support behind the new law allowing homosexual “marriage” and no-fault divorce, the radical left-wing party in Spain, Izquierda Unida (United Left), has asked the government to immediately approve a new law that would allow Social Security funds to be used to pay for sex change operations. As part of its offensive, United Left Congresswoman Isaura Navarra has made an official request to the Executive branch for information about its timetable for sending the proposal to the legislature.
Navarra also requested information about plans to include sex change operations in government healthcare services.
After calling the approval of homosexual unions an “historical advance,” Navarra said there was “still much to be done in the fight against homophobia, through sex education and the Law on Gender Identity which will respond to the needs of the transsexual community.”
“There are still new challenges for bringing hope to millions of people in order to transform society,” the text reads, echoing the theme of a homosexual march last Saturday in Madrid: “Let’s move forward! Now, transsexuals.”
Navarra’s actions follow a meeting between United Left leader Gaspar Llamazares and the State Federation of Gays, Lesbians, Transsexuals and Bisexuals, after which Llamazares pledged his support to fight for passage of the law.
