Couple sues over adopted son's sex-assignment surgery
15 May 13
A South Carolina couple sued doctors and state social workers for subjecting a 16-month-old child born with both male and female genitalia to what they say was medically unnecessary and irreversible sex-assignment surgery while the toddler was in foster care.
The state and federal lawsuits argue that doctors should not have performed surgery to make the child's body appear to be female when they knew they could not predict how gender would develop.
The child, now 8, has shown strong signs of identifying as male and recently began living as a boy, according to according to his parents, who adopted him after the surgery. The couple said they are taking legal action in the hopes of helping other children who face similar medical conditions.
