Statement des Menschenrechtskommissars des Europarats

Nils Muižnieks, der Menschenrechtskommissar des Europarats, hat am 9. Mai ein Statement zur Situation von Inter* veröffentlicht, in dem er auch Forderungen an Regierungen formuliert. Hier ein Auszug:

„I urge governments in Europe to review their current legislation and medical practices to identify gaps in the protection of intersex people and take measures to address the problems. Policy makers should involve civil society advocates of intersex persons such as the OII Europe and ILGA-Europe in these efforts. The enjoyment of human rights is universal and it cannot depend on the sex of the person. Intersex individuals must be granted full legal recognition from birth and amendments to their sex or gender classification should be facilitated to reflect their individual choices.“
