ACLU will sue the military if Chelsea Manning is not given gender treatment

Posted August 14th, 2014 @ 9:10am

ACLU says failure to provide the transgender inmate with medical treatment “violates her well-established constitutional right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment.”

Lawyers for Chelsea Manning have given the military until Sept. 4 to put in place appropriate medical treatment for the transgender woman, who is an inmate at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas.
