I Want to Be Like Nature Made Me: Medically Unnecessary Surgeries on Intersex Children in the US

interACT is excited to announce the launch of a joint report with Human Rights Watch: “‘I Want to Be Like Nature Made Me’: Medically Unnecessary Surgeries on Intersex Children in the US.”

This report is the result of months of in-depth research and interviews with intersex individuals, parents of intersex children, and doctors to uncover the truth about intersex medical care in the United States: the practices and their consequences; what has changed over the decades of international activism; and what still remains to be done.

interACT could not be more grateful to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Human Rights Watch on what is certain to have an earth-shaking impact in the intersex, medical, and legal communities.
