Good afternoon everyone. I invite you all to submit your questions here in the chat, and I'll do my best to ask them on your behalf towards the end. Thanks
dogs always want to get in on the action!

are you suggesting that their are ICU’s are adopting a lottery system?
Thank you Morgan and the Alliance
Thanks Morgan. As a bioethicist involved in ICU decisions making it’s just unknown
This has been a great presentation, I think you are recording it, will it be available to share or for people to access?
Hi Lizzi, yes we'll upload this resource onto our website :)
With the change to non-urgent surgeries now becoming available again, do you think there will be increased pressure for parents to consent to surgeries on their intersex infants while this is allowed (not sure how to explain my question well…more like pressure along the lines of ‘times are changing and if we have a second wave this surgery may not be allowed so we have to do it now)? If so, what further/longer term implications of this do you think there might be?
I think the ICU situation in some places around the world (having to make decisions about who gets medical interventions) really highlights how our societies value people and how people with disability, chronic health issues and anyone who doesn’t fit into mainstream boxes is valued less. It highlights how we need to change those prevalent attitudes in society
