The Intersex Justice Project (IJP) and Houston Intersex Society (THIS) worked together last month to co-organize IJP’s second protest and rally outside of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago as part of our #EndIntersexSurgery campaign. Close to 100 people, 30+ of which were intersex, showed up to demand that Lurie become the first hospital in the United States to ban medically unnecessary “cosmetic/corrective” procedures on intersex children.
Words from IJP.
