A change of heart?

Alas, no. Still, it seems an unlikely argument from a man so convinced of his inalienable right to an abortion:
The case against [gender reassignment surgery] is usually made by Catholics, but nothing about it depends on any religious premise. It boils down to this: Gender reassignment constitutes the irreversible surgical mutilation of a healthy body — and thus violates the traditional prime directive of medicine — in the effort to correct a delusion, one which may be reversible.
Couldn't agree more.
