I know there is a thread about Ricky Lake's "The Business of Being Born" here..

and what a shame she didn't tackle the issue of circumcision (esp. given her specific situation! Hooray for her!!)...

BUT...(and this may have already been discussed - sorry if so..)

I immediately hopped on the computer to get to all of you as soon as I watched every last second of ...

Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova's "Birth As We Know It"

she dedicated a whole segment on the special features portion and included in the feature film, the impact of circumcision. Also, included the NOCIRC advertisement at the end of the special features.

This movie was BEAUTIFUL!!!! I can honestly say I've NEVER seen anything like it!

I found a link on youtube but I have no idea if it's the whole segment. And the whole 4 minutes of it is showing a circumcision. Can someone provide a link to the whole segment? Or is that it?

Wife to Chiro DH, TTC #1 since May 07 Hoping for a after many losses

Elena, the woman who produced it, is from Russia originally. She was absolutely shocked when she moved to the U.S. and learned that Male Genital Mutilation was rampant in the country. The film is a treasure from many perspectives and it cost her a fortune in production costs. It's a powerful intactivist message and she deserves all the support we can give her. Ask you public library to order a copy and encourage others to purchase the film.
