welcome to

This site seeks to shed light on the practice by certain U.S. doctors of administering the steroid dexamethasone to pregnant women in an effort to prevent them from giving birth to girls with atypical genitalia. We are generally concerned that this treatment may be unethical in and of itself, but we are more immediately concerned that experiments using this off-label treatment may be occurring without clinicians adequately protecting the rights of their pregnant patients.
