URGENT! Help me find this pamphlet!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
2 weeks ago I did a web search for a pamphlet to pass on to some prego relatives about circumsion. I found one that was basic and explained why not to circ. It was free and on the cover had a baby and said something like "You're having a baby! It's a boy! He has a penis! Which means he has a foreskin!" I sent it off with the gift and now cannot find it anywhere! I have been searching here and the web for hours with no luck. I fear many of the nocirc pamphlets are too technical and the penis pictures (which I have no issue with) may turn the new poarent red right away. So does anyoen know what pamphlet I am speaking of, or similar? I need it by TOMORROW!-Really tonight! Please help!

This pamphlet is very cute! It should be a greeting card, with facts inside/on the back.

For those of you who may be interested, I made a "booklet" out of mine.

I went to *print*,

selected *properties*

then *job finishing*,

checked off *booklet* ,

and finally *two sheets per bundle* ,

before sending it to *print* .

It certainly is a very cute and inoffensive approach to open the topic of circumcision.

I agree, inoffensive but sure to get a chuckle with the penis/foreskin comment on the front. I felt the other pamphlets with the cold facts and penis sketchings are just too much for many couples not familair with circumcision facts, etc. This pamphlet is a great door opener to the subject!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And trust me I searched before I found it the first time and found nothing to compare!

Why aren't pamphlets like this made available in the waiting room at the doctor's offices or hospitals?

You mean, Last Minute, in the very places where they make $$$$$$$$$$$$$ off circumcision (and also money off the foreskin itself, by selling it to biomed companies)????

But.....we can all print out this type of info and leave it in the waiting room the next time we go to the doc's office!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking. I'm sure someone would quickly eliminate them once discovered but maybe one pregnant womyn may get a chance to peruse the information. We can always hope ....

I don't know if it makes a difference, but...

I had business cards with the web site on it printed off and I hand one to every pregnant woman I encounter. I've even got my husband doing it. although somewhat reluctantly!

Of course it must make a difference to those seeking information on the topic. ps. How do you word the cards?
post #14 of 15
My idea: (because the trick is to get people to come to their own conclusions- not slam them with yours)

A frame freeze (is that what it's called?) Of the google search engine field with the word "CIRCUMCISION" typed in. Not the results- just the little box and button.

I think that magnetized business cards are cool because you can stick them up in places without being a vandal. And since anti-circ is anti-vandal... it's good to keep it on the up and up.
