South Carolina (USA)

Senate Bill 80 would prohibit the South Carolina Department of Corrections from using state funds or state resources to provide a prisoner in the state prison system sexual reassignment surgery (“SRS”); however, if a person is taking hormonal therapy at the time the person is committed to the Department of Corrections, the department must continue to provide this therapy to the person as long as medically necessary for the health of the person.

S.B. 80 is a response to several cases in which men sought state-funded SRS, including the Robert Kosilek and Ophelia De’Lonta cases.
