California Lawmakers Kill Ban on ‘Intersex’ Surgery for Young Children

Breitbart-

Lawmakers in California have killed a bill that would ban most surgeries on “intersex” infants and young children – those born with ambiguous sex characteristics.

The measure would have prohibited surgeries on children, aged six and under, born with sex characteristics that cannot easily be categorized as “male” or “female,” unless the Medical Board of California determined they were medically necessary.

A majority of state lawmakers – three Democrats and one Republican on the state Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee, voted to reject the bill, proposed by Democrat State Sen. Scott Wiener, that would have banned most of the intersex procedures, reported the Associated Press (AP).

Wiener claimed the bill addresses a civil rights issue and seeks to “ensure that people who are born intersex are able to make their own choices about their health and their gender identity instead of having other people make those irreversible surgical choices for them.”

However, as AP reported, a majority of committee members considered the measure’s definition of “intersex” to be overly broad.

  1. “ensure that people who are born intersex are able to make their own choices about their health and their gender identity instead of having other people make those irreversible surgical choices for them.”

    well then we should allow children to drink, smoke and vote if we allow them to make these types of choices, right ?

  2. I had a friend in school who was born a hermaphrodite. I never had a clue. She was a large girl (not fat, just large. Her parents and doctors decided she should be a boy, while she felt like a girl emotionally. Tragic. She was messed for the rest of her life. Leave the kids alone. Please let the child grow up and then let them make the choice. No hormones either.

  4. Too bad they weren’t doing this kind of surgery when Schiff was a kid; he could have been a real man instead of the raisin-sack he is today.
