Spain: A underage Hermaphrodite seeks a sex change

The parents of a "minor" in Spain is seeking the court to grant approval for a sex change operation.

As a law requirement, a underage teenager need authorization from a judge in Barcelona to become a female via surgery.

If a judge grants this wish...a decision to transition a minor born male, into a female, this will become the first procedure to be performed in Spain.

According to the Spanish law, this operation is allowed only if the patient is over the age of 18. If a patient is under the age of 18, the parent must request permission from a court.

The patient was born a male and has undergone hormonal therapy and psychological counselling for the past 18 months. Doctors will not perform a sex change unless there's proof that the patient was born with a genetic defect.

It’s understood that the application made by the teenager’s parents is supported by a report from medical experts recommending that the surgery can go ahead.
