The Labour AM for Cardiff South and Penarth appears to be backing calls for the so-called “trans community” to receive more free sex treatment on the NHS.
Gething – who is “Health Minister” in the Welsh Labour Government has been meeting “trans” activists who are campaigning o receive free fertility treatment – despite escalating cost pressures on the NHS in Wales and cuts to NHS budgets inflicted by the Welsh Labour Government.
The Wales Equality Alliance says Gething has had talks with trans activist Jenny M Charles to “discuss a way forward in addressing urgent health needs of the trans community in Wales”.
One local healthcare worker told PDN “It’s time Gething actually focussed on the real priorities of the NHS in Wales – like providing enough General Practitioners – rather than involving the NHS in minority fringe issues”.
Another critic says accuses trans people of getting NHS drugs to reduce their fertility and then demanding “the NHS restore their fertility”
NHS England is being threatened with legal action if it does not start offering fertility treatments to transgender patients.
Gething is said to have signed a “Trans Ally” flag to be displayed at a forthcoming gay “pride” event.
Gething is also campaigning to be elected Leader of the Labour Party in Wales – and if he wins would succeed Carwyn Jones as First Minister in the Welsh Assembly.
