An 18-year-old girl decided to sue the health center and medical group that performed breast removal on her when she was only 13 years old without even conducting a mental health evaluation.
Layla Jane is accusing the Permanente Medical Group and Kaiser Hospital of allowing her to change her sex at such a young age, providing her with hormone blockers and performing a double mastectomy without performing an adequate evaluation.
"I don't think I should've been allowed to change my sex before I was legally able to have sex. I don't think I'm better off for the experience, and I think transitioning just completely added fuel to the fire that was my preexisting conditions." Jane told Fox News.
The young woman explained that she struggled with her mental health in the past and even contemplated suicide. In fact, Jane's lawyers pointed out that doctors should have focused on treatment for her mental health before approving any type of treatment for gender transition.
According to legal documents, Jane suffers from depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia and strong concerns about her physical image. In addition to this, as a result of the mutilation the young woman faces an induced state of endocrine disease, an increased risk of being infertile and the fact that she will never be able to breastfeed her children if she ever has any.

"These doctors also pushed Layla and her parents down this transition path engaging in intentional, malicious, and oppressive concealment of important information and false representations," the text states.
Jane revealed that at first, the doctors told her that she could not begin the transition process until she turned 16, but the doctors changed their position and began the process of changing her sex.
"Mind boggling to me that a doctor signed off on a double mastectomy for me before I took a sex ed course. I barely started 8th grade, I was 13," she expressed via Twitter.
