- The Liberal/Coalition and Labor Partys
At present neither of the major parties running for the 2007 Election have any policy relating to been committed to continuing and/or extending the Medicare benefits available to transgender people undergoing gender re-assignment.
The only political party that supports this are the Greens. As much as this is majorly supported it however makes no difference unless they hold a balance of power.
It's up to groups such as the Greens along with affiliated groups to try to implement change by having these changes supported by the government of the day. Neither major party has any concrete policies in place to address GLBT issues such as SRS and its time they did.
This Petition is to support the right for TG people to undergo SRS through the Medicare sytem.
In alot of cases TG's go through life unable to afford the cost of correcting a genetic error and rarely get the support they need. It's time this changed.
I the undersigned request that the Government of the day commit to continuing and/or extending the Medicare benefits
available to transgender people undergoing gender re-assignment.
