Example text

Scientific publications during the past ten years illustrate the rapid pace at which the standard protocol for the treatment of infants with an intersex condition is changing. 19 Within a short time of the publication of that statement, a number of experts began to call for a moratorium on cosmetic genital surgeries on infants with an intersex condition. 20 In 2001, a group of experts published a study of forty-four adolescent patients, all of whom had undergone cosmetic genital surgery in infancy between 1979 and 1995.

27 In its extensive report, the WPAS stated, [T]he rights of parents to make treatment and other decisions for their minor children, however, are not unfettered. “[T]he state has a wide range of power for limiting parental freedom and authority in things affecting the child’s welfare” [citing Prince v. S. 158 (1944)]. Parents generally have the right to make medical decisions for their minor children and provide informed consent for various procedures; however, courts have limited this authority when parents seek highly invasive and/or irreversible medical treatment of their minor children.

Finally, governmental agencies could initiate investigations into these practices. When these lawsuits arise, courts should ban these types of procedures unless there is clear evidence that the sterilization would be in the child’s best interests and that waiting until the child is old enough to make a decision would cause irreparable harm. Invasive and Irreversible Procedures Not Causing Sterilization May Require Similar Safeguards and Oversight Procedures that do not affect reproductive capacity do not involve the same fundamental rights and, as a result, are not entitled to the same constitutional protection.
