Child Circumcision: An Elephant in the Hospital


Ryan McAllister, Ph.D., Executive Director of NotJustSkin.org and others.
One of NotJustSkin's primary missions is to educate the public about violations of informed consent or bodily integrity. In the U.S., male genital cutting, more often called circumcision, is commonly practiced even though parents rarely receive the information that would be required to give informed consent to any other procedure. Circumcision is the only procedure where a doctor can legally amputate part of a nonconsenting child without any medical reason.
You can watch our lecture on circumcision, Child Circumcision: an Elephant in the Hospital. Note that this presentation includes graphic material to convey more complete information about the topic
