Zwischengeschlecht.org on FacebookIGM = Harmful PracticeIn 2016, France has been reprimanded 3 times by the UN for allowing Intersex Genital Mutilations to continue with impunity, with UN bodies each time condemning IGM as a “harmful practice” like FGM, or as “inhuman treatment” punishable as torture.

To this day, in the “developed world” intersex children are systematically submitted to non-consensual, unnecessary, irreversible, cosmetic genital surgery, sterilising procedures, imposition of hormones, and other harmful treatment.

To this day, in France IGM practices continue to be advocated by public medical bodies, perpetrated in public university and regional children’s clinics, and paid for by the public health insurance.

To this day, for example the French High Authority of Health (HAS) prescribes partial clitoris amputation and other unnecessary surgery on intersex children “during the first months of life”.

And over the next weekend IGM perpetrators from allover will flock to Paris for the ’55th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE)’.

Next Friday evening the international intersex human rights NGO StopIGM.org will inform about these ongoing violations at the Confédération Nationale du Planning Familial in Paris.

And Saturday till Monday we will hold non-violent protests in front of the Palais des Congrès, the IGM university clinic Hôpital Robert-Debré and the Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS).

Please share widely to help reminding the perpetrators and their accessories that it is NOT OK to mutilate defenceless children!
