No one has any idea what that hormone therapy is going to do to her years down the road.
I think there are better ways to deal with situation like this other than making it easier for the parents.
If she were severely retarted and could speak, walk and roll over but was never going to progress past the age of 6 mentally would it be ok then?

"Ashley has no need for her uterus since she will not be bearing children," they say, adding that the decision means she will not experience menstrual cramps.
The decision to remove her breast buds was partly to avoid sexualizing Ashley in the eyes of her caregiver, but mainly so that she would not experience discomfort when lying down.
