I agree that we need to get the med schools teaching the correct material. Perhaps the best place to start is with the medical textbook publishers. If everyone with access to a med library would look through the pediatric, general anatomy, obstetric, nursing, urologic, and family practice texts and then write the authors and publishers to correct incorrect information (and believe you me most of the texts are full of incorrect info about the normal penis, the foreskin, progressive retraction, etc.) about the normal penis and circ, then perhaps they would begin to listen. There is power in numbers. In addition each person can educate their own OB and Ped by using the NOCIRC pamphlets. We need everyone doing all they can to promote the truth. Lawsuits are only so effective, because they are not brought that often. Not that one should not sue. On the contrary, suits are necessary to vindicate your child's violated rights. However, other methods can be at least as effective as suits in changing doctor's minds.
