Still loving this thread. Bottom line is that legal or not, it isnt right. Plenty of things are legal, and plenty are illegal, doesnt make them right.
yes, I believe they have to do it within a certain time after they turn 18. There are lots of articles/info out there about it. Obviously a infant, toddler, child can't sue someone! Hopefully it will be illegal by then anyway...

to the other mama, yes, they can sue their parents but if the person feels they have been done harm and have life long consequences, the doctor's oath is to do no harm etc etc there's also the case for informed consent, a lot of parents are not properly informed about the procedure, side effects etc and that falls on the doctor/hospital too, I saw an example where the parents weren't told side effects like loss of sensation, or were rushed through signing, if the little boy then grows up to lose feeling in his parts (isn't the name censored here?) then he has a case there against the doc and hospital, kwim?

But anyway, my vote is for making it just plain illegal to remove pieces from a non-consenting minor, keep signing those petitions!!
