Doctors Insist Canadian 14-Year-Old Needs No Parent Consent For Trans Hormone Injections

Clark* first found out that his 12-year-old daughter Maxine* was being treated as a boy by her school when he saw her new name in her class’s grade seven yearbook. “Quinn” was the new name her counselor had helped her pick out, and Maxine’s school district in Delta, British Columbia, Canada, had decided that “Quinn” should be treated, for all intents and purposes, as a boy.

Clark was naturally upset about not being informed, but Maxine’s school district was operating by the BC Ministry of Education’s Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Policy, according to which Clark had no right to know his daughter’s “preferred sex, gender, or name” at school.
