HB 6171 Sample Testimony
HB 6171 Fact Sheet

The state of California passed SCR-110, a resolution calling on the medical profession to heed international human rights guidelines and delay procedures to normalize intersex infants’ bodies, such as clitoral reductions, until an individual can participate in the decision. SCR-110 is the first legislation in U.S. history to name the harms of non-consensual medical interventions on intersex people.

In January 2019, California followed up by introducing SB 201, a bill to ensure that intersex people are given the opportunity to provide informed consent before any medical treatments that could irreversibly affect puberty, sexual function, or fertility, including reducing a clitoris, creating a vagina, or removing healthy gonadal tissue. The bill was not advanced by the California Senate Business & Professions Committee, after its chair received a $50,000 donation from the California Medical Association.

In January 2020, interACT launched SB 225, a new bill to promote bodily autonomy on genital surgeries, with partners Senator Scott Wiener, Equality California, The ACLU of California, and The National Center for Lesbian Rights.
