Circumcision is a Painful, Costly and Unnecessary Procedure
Target: Centers for Disease Control
Sponsored by: Intact America
No medical society in the world recommends male circumcision - yet newborn circumcision is the most common surgical procedure in the U.S.
Safer sexual practices and abstinence - not circumcision - prevent sexually transmitted diseases. And we know that there is NO link between infant circumcision and better health.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reviewing new health claims about the "benefits" of circumcision - and may recommend this unnecessary surgery for our baby boys based on flawed studies that ignore the risks and ethics of circumcision.
As a U.S. agency safeguarding public health, the CDC has a responsibility to share the truth about this painful and unnecessary practice. Help prevent a government recommendation of routine newborn male circumcision by signing our petition to the CDC.
