The interACT legal team recently submitted a document to the 59th Session of the UN Convention Against Torture (CAT) urging them to consider some key questions around intersex in the future periodic review of the USA. This document provides an updated summary of the current standing of intersex surgery and human rights.  It also reiterates the fact that continued treatment of intersex individuals in the United States clearly meets the CAT’s standards for torture: that the action be intentional and performed for discriminatory and non-medical purposes; performed with state control, custody or consent; cause severe physical and psychological pain or suffering; and involve those who are powerless to refuse.
