Intact America is preparing for a New Orleans protest outside the annual convention of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Intact America will be sponsoring a sidewalk demonstration in New Orleans on Saturday, May 4, 2013, at the annual convention of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The image to the right is the Intact America logo for this protest and is being used by many on Facebook. The ACOG convention is the largest assemblage of baby-cutters under one roof. During this one-day event, intactivist will be protesting the role of obstetricians in perpetrating circumcision in American hospitals.
The picture below shows the mobile billboard that will traverse the streets of New Orleans on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is just one more way Intact America gets the word out that male infant circumcision is harmful. Baby boys need to be protected. It is, after all, his body and his rights.
Parents, protect your babies. Support intactivism. The following list includes blogs, articles, and websites of interest to Intactivists that were published in the past month. This is a running tally of the ones I found interesting.
Should I circumcise?:Circumcision and Trauma
Infant circumcision is traumatic. Why is that controversial? Trauma is defined as an event that the person experiences where they feel a lack of control and fear that their life is in danger. It is also accompanied by a state of heightened central nervous system arousal, a fight or flight type response. This describes what happens when a baby has part of his most sensitive organ cut off.
Restoring Tally is just an ordinary guy who had to confront his prostate and circumcision problems. This site chronicles his journey in dealing with these issues. He has had prostate surgery and he is restoring his foreskin.
