When children are born with differences in sexual development, such as being intersex, it’s quite common for medical folks to pressure the parents into consenting to genital surgery to “correct” it. But the surgeries are not as effective as many folks might think and there are many unresolved legal and ethical questions.
Fortunately, AIC is working to change that and to help parents make the best decision for their children. The organization is a finalist in the $10,ooo Ashoka Changemakers competition and they need your vote to win. Please click on this link and vote for “Resolve: Healing the Legacy of Intersex/DVD Treatment”.
Children deserve medical care that is best for them and parents deserve the information to make decisions on behalf of their kids. AIC is working hard to make that happen and your vote will make that possible.
