The AMA wants to make gender a form of “self expression” on official documents
And so it continues, the unscientific madness that goes against biology and common sense. This time it’s the once-respected American Medical Association that goes woke, calling for eliminating biological sex on birth certificates.
Here’s an extract from an article published by The Daily Signal:
“Designating sex on birth certificates as male or female, and making that information available on the public portion, perpetuates a view that sex designation is permanent and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity,” Dr. Sandra Adamson Fryhofer, chairman-elect of the AMA’s board, said. “This type of categorization system also risks stifling an individual’s self-expression and self-identification and contributes to marginalization and minoritization.”
So, is this about individual “self-expression” or science?

If you think this is just an issue in the United States, then think again – New Zealand is marching purposely to the same woke beats. Our own Government already allows citizens to change their gender on both passports and birth certificates, issuing new documents with their “preferred gender”. There’s even 3 gender options – M (male), F (female), and X (gender diverse).
We believe that biology is important, it should determine what’s published on official documents.
