Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA) recently spoke out against health insurance companies covering gender-related procedures like hair transplants and gender-alignment surgery on the grounds that he himself felt no need to change his gender identity. “I don’t want to pay for a sex change operation,” Broun said last week in a speech against Obamacare, “I’m not interested. I like being a boy.”
Broun’s anti-LGBTQ stance has been well known since 2009, when he advocated for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. The representative is also notorious for extreme anti-choice values. He is the original sponsor of the “Sanctity of Human Life Act,” first introduced in 2011, which would federally define life as beginning at conception.
