Occupy AAP Headquarters - Elk Grove Village, Illinois
Event Dates: September 17, 2012 - 8:00am - 6:00pm
Members of Chicago Intactivists will hold an all-day protest against the American Academy of Pediatrics for its refusal to advise its members against performing non-therapeutic, non-consensual genital surgery such as routine infant circumcision.
We have a perfectly designed genital structure, the foreskin, and cutting it off is to me a major violation of boys' human rights... I found out that 3/4 of the nerve endings were missing, and this was only recently discovered. Only one study has been done comparing about 160 men in two groups, circumcised and intact, and found that the most sensitive part of the penis is the foreskin... by miles.
