A BC Supreme Court judge ruled that a father fighting to stop his transgender child from undergoing a chemically-induced sex change is not permitted to give any more media interviews.

Lawyers representing the teen, the mother and the doctors involved argued that the father, who is referred to as C.D. in court proceedings, broke a publication ban on the case by giving video interviews online. 

C.D. has been fighting to have a say in his child’s chemically-induced gender transition from female to male. The process could have irreversible effects such as facial hair growth and an inability to have children. 

“She is a girl. Her DNA will not change through all these experiments that they do,” said the father in a prior media interview.
