IGM = Hamful Practice

UPDATE: As StopIGM.org has been informed, the publication of the ‘Concluding Observations’ by the UN Committee on the rights of the Child (CRC) including reprimands to the UK and Nepal for complicity in Intersex Genital Mutilations (IGM) and bullying of intersex children in schools has been rescheduled to THURSDAY 9 JUNE. UN-CRC questioned both the UK and Nepal over IGM practices and other human rights violations of intersex children during its 72nd session, with both state parties failing to provide satisfactory answers. UN treaty bodies including CRC have so far issued 12 reprimands for IGM to complicit states. >>> more info

StopIGM.org, IntersexUK, The UK Intersex Association and Leslie Jaye, Esan Regmi and Parsu Ram Rai demand the prohibition of forced genital surgeries on children and adolescents with Variations of Sex Anatomy and “Human Rights for Hermaphrodites too!”

Persons concerned shall later decide themselves, if they want surgeries or not, and if yes, which.

Kind regards
