Children with intersex traits should have an opportunity to make decisions about their bodies once they are able to determine what is best for themselves.

This bill would permit the Department of Health, in conjunction with directly impacted individuals and their chosen advocates and medical providers, to conduct a public education campaign around the existence of people with intersex traits and the risks associated with nonemergent interventions performed on infants and children with intersex traits. The NYCLU supports this bill and urges its passage.
