Should the AMA Remove Sex Designation From Public Birth Certificates?
The American Medical Association (AMA) has announced that they support removing sex designation from the public portion of birth certificates in order to shield individuals from invasion of privacy and prevent discrimination. Many support the decision, stating that the current practice of designating sex on birth certificates fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity. However, some opponents argue that if a person has physical characteristics of a male or female, it should be noted on public record.
