Viloria in The Advocate on “Why We Need to Protect Intersex Babies”

We’re very pleased that The Advocate has shown a continuing interest in educating its many readers on intersex issues!  The essay not only educates regarding the discrimination and harm involved in non-medically necessary cosmetic genital surgery and sex reassignment of intersex babies (a.k.a. “Intersex Genital Mutilation”/IGM), but helps people understand and make important decisions about intersex babies by linking to OII-USA’s Your Beautiful Child: Information for Parents.
