PES response to California Senate Resolution regarding infant genital surgery (SCR-110)

A non-binding resolution to ban all genital surgery on infants has been working its way through the California legislature. PES, along with the Endocrine Society, has responded with a letter opposing the resolution on the grounds that each individual child’s circumstances are too different and the issues too nuanced to be amenable to blanket legislative involvement. PES is also working with CARES and the Society for Pediatric Urology to help legislators craft resolution language that addresses our shared desire to prevent unneeded surgery, but that more fully recognizes the often complex realities faced by these infants and their families.
