SB201, Senator Scott Wiener’s bill banning unnecessary surgeries on intersex infants, died in committee on Monday, after members of the committee “criticized the bill as being too broad and taking away control from both parents and physicians.” The Senator has pledged to bring back the bill, stating “We aren't giving up on protecting intersex people from non-consensual, invasive, dangerous surgery.”
