A mother tells her son's circumcision story to intactivists protesting the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists on April 29, 2014 at the McCormick Convention Center in Chicago, IL.

Dr. Aaron Jesin, MD, who doubles as a mohel and a doctor, had admitted to performing the Jewish circumcision and penis blood-sucking ritual of metzizah b'peh on infants: www.cjnews.com/health/haredim-insist-oral-suction-necessary-brit-milah.
An intactivist in Toronto has filed a complaint against Dr. Jesin, but the Ethics Committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario dismissed the complaint against him.
Chicagoland Intactivists will be protesting on the sidewalk outside the hotel where the obstetricians are having their opening night gala reception for their annual meeting (which starts the next day at McCormick Place, where we also hope to be).
We'll have large banners and tons of leaflets, but feel free to bring your own.
