An important function I want readers from the United States to start taking over.

You can create an account and subscribe to government mailing-lists for the HHS, NIH, OIG, FDA, and other agencies here:

You can subscribe to the CDC mailing-list here:

Being on government agency mailing-lists is the best way of being informed of important changes affecting the incidence, availability and incentive for circumcision, and to identify opportunities to present anti-circumcision arguments directly to policymakers and regulatory agencies in the United States.

This is a particularly good avenue for those readers of a more studious nature, who may have limited time and resources to devote to anti-circumcision activities and in any event, aren't seeking to do so publicly as "intactivists".

Readers from the United States should also regularly check the http://www.regulations.gov site to look for opportunities to present arguments directly to regulatory agencies which may reduce the incidence, availability and incentive for performing circumcision.

A systematic approach to collating information, identifying opportunities to present anti-circumcision arguments directly to policymakers and regulatory agencies (using their own formal processes) and preparing response documents, is one that could help steadily reduce the incidence, availability and incentive for performing circumcision in the United States, is in line with the generally successful strategy followed by opponents of circumcision in Australia and the United Kingdom, and is something that has been demonstrated to actually be practical and doable using forums like these.
