Intact America holds that it is unethical to circumcise babies or children because they cannot consent to it, and because it is not medically necessary. There is no health benefit that warrants the removal of a normal body part that has such important functions.
“Intact America works to end routine circumcision and to ensure a healthy sexual future for all people.
“Newborn male circumcision is the most common surgical procedure performed in the U.S. It's a common misconception that there are tangible health benefits to male circumcision, but the truth is no medical society in the world recommends it. This invasive procedure carries serious health risks, including infection, hemorrhage, surgical mishap, and death, as well many ethical considerations.”

WHY IS CIRCUMCISION HARMFUL?
“The foreskin is the only part of the human body Americans routinely amputate in the absence of an immediate health threat. Since the American Academy of Pediatrics issued their 2012 statement reversing its previously neutral stance on circumcision, Intactivists have had to step up the education about the harm done by this unnecessary procedure.

“Increasing numbers of men are aware that medical and parental ignorance of male genital anatomy & function perpetuates circumcision customs.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS AND HARMS OF NEWBORN CIRCUMCISION?
“We now know that newborn circumcision does not provide any known health benefits for either boys or men, as some once believed.
“Circumcision is painful and traumatic for babies, can result in feelings of guilt and regret for parents, and can cause significant physical, psychological, and sexual harm to men.
Boys and men of all ages benefit from keeping their foreskins. Babies’ caregivers and men’s sex partners also benefit.”

THE CRUELEST CUT OF ALL:
WHY MALE CIRCUMCISION IS WRONG
“Circumcision reduces sexual pleasure in later life, with many thousands of nerve cells cut off the tip of the penis, and indeed, just like female cutting, that’s the whole reason the practice got started. Why is this barbaric practice still commonplace?” continues…

Baby boys are being brutally tortured every 25 seconds in the United States.
