When Medicine Goes Too Far in Pursuit of Normalizing Children

Medical professionals often approach children born with norm-challenging bodies with a benevolent desire to use medicine to make those children’s bodies more typical. This happens, for example, with children born with atypical genitals or unusual facial features, with children who are born conjoined, and with children who are very short. But medical “‘normalization” is not always the best approach. This talk will explore how science and history help us think through these situations.
