CASTRATIONS FOR MINORS BANNED IN THAILAND

Did you know that Thai health officials had just conducted bans of doctors performing castrations on 3rd April 2008. This move came just after a parent and gay rights activists a week ago. There were complaints that castrations were performed on underage boys. Until an official decision by the Medical Council, the ban will be in placed to protect the minors from these castrations.

This ban is expected to affect Thai hospitals and clinics, as many as 10,000 of them. Castration is the removal of testicles to prevent the body from developing masculine features for a more feminine appearance before the complete gender reassignment surgery.
