Protest against forced sterilization of transgender people
Copied wholesale from Erastes
I think if you are going to do one political act today, then do this one rather than the other.
If you are a transgender person in Sweden and want to legally change your gender, the government forces you to undergo surgery that will render you permanently infertile and forever unable to have children. That’s right: in 2012 Swedish law still mandates forced sterilization in order to do something as simple as changing your gender on a driver’s license.
Right now a reform of the law is being debated in Sweden. We need a massive show of support across Sweden and Europe against forced sterilization that will finally convince Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfledt to speak out and break the deadlock.
Whether you are straight, gay, lesbian, bi or trans, Swedish or European, will you take a moment to raise your voice and ask Prime Minister Reinfeldt to take a stand for human rights?
