American Medical Association Recommends Removing Sex From Birth Certificates

The American Medical Association, the AMA, now states that a baby’s sex or gender should not be listed on their birth certificate. In June the LGBTQ advisory board stated using a binary variable and placing it on the public portion of the public-facing view perpetuates a view that it is immutable. And it fails to recognize the spectrum of gender identity. To be clear any sex or gender recorded at birth would still be recorded, it just would not be publically available. According to the AMA, this information would be sent to the US agencies that track US growth, population, health, and other agencies for statistical use only.
