My name is Peter. In August 2012 my then 6 week old little boy was subjected to circumcision.


He was circumcised for no medical reason, without his consent and without my consent as his father.


After reading some of the inane responses I have received from politicians, bureaucrats and the medical self regulators, perhaps you'll be angry enough to put pen to paper yourself to try and make a difference.


The author of this website has had the forthrightness to also publish his letters to various politicians and regulatory officials, and from a cold and detached standpoint, some of his approaches could have been better.


Still, the responses do lend insight into the dismissive attitude of many Australian politicians and medical regulators towards male circumcision.

He is a lot more eloquent than I could ever be.


I will be interested to see if any of the politicians and medical bodies have the ethics to grace him with an answer.

Australian men, have an opinion on circumcision?
