Routine Infant Circumcision is not practiced in most medically advanced nations. Unlike American parents, few parents worldwide are actually faced with this choice. Their babies are automatically brought home intact.
We have extremely strong opinions about circumcision- specifically that circumcision violates a child's rights. We do not believe that there is any logical or reasonable reason to circumcise an infant. The history of circumcision and the blind cultural following is shallow and disturbing.
We strive as individuals and as a community to educate and change the mind of the parent planning to circumcise their child.
This is a place to compile information to refute baseless pro-circ arguments, to post anti-circ/pro-circ wars from other communities (namely pregnancy communities), bitch about assholes who refuse to see the light, pass along intactivist information for your local area, post pictures of your anti-circ slogans that you've written/stickered in your area.
