CA would ban infant intersex surgeries under Wiener bill

02/04/2019 | The Bay Area Reporter

California would become the first state in the nation to ban surgeries performed on intersex infants if state lawmakers approve a bill authored by gay state Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco). At a news conference in San Francisco Monday morning, Wiener is scheduled to announce his legislation. It has yet to be assigned a number but is being referred to as the Intersex Bodily Autonomy bill.  Intersex people, who account for 1 to 2 percent of the population, are defined as those born with any variation of reproductive or sexual anatomy characteristics including genitals, chromosome patterns, and sex hormones.
