As South Carolina couple is suing the state for doing sexual-reassignment surgery on their son!

The child was born with male and female genitals back in 2006. Social Services was caring for the child when doctors recommended surgery to make him a girl.

Mark and Pam Crawford adopted the child a few months later. Now they say their son lost his right to choose his identity.

Advocates say this surgery can cause sexual identity and emotional problems.
