Many doctors attending the convention walked on by, apparently uninterested in a street-corner debate. "There are more important social issues," said one doctor, shaking his head. "This is a waste of paper."






As a mother who deeply regrets having her son circumcized, I strongly disagree that this issue is a waste of paper.

The graphic posters of infants being circumcised and other protest literature did make an impression on some men.

RE: "John Geisheker, a Seattle attorney who specializes in botched circumcision cases"


"Kiwi John" is a native New Zelander whose parents came to the US while he was still a baby. The doctor told his mother that all boys had to be circumcised at some time during their life and that it was required. John had his perfectly healthy, perfectly problem free foreskin amputated at 6 years old with no pain relief at all.

John has blanked the procedure out of his mind but his mother told him he could be heard screaming from one end of the building to the other and she cried for him for days.

John is committed to ending circumcision forever.
