TELL CONGRESS TO STOP THE CDC
Millions of American men were subjected to a medical procedure that they NEVER would have chosen for themselves – if they had the choice. Instead, circumcision was forced on them. The circumcision rates have been dropping in American as more people become aware that genital cutting is unnecessary and harmful.
Now the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is calling for doctors to tell the parents of male infants, children and adolescents that circumcision has been found to reduce the transmission to men of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The CDC wants to encourage parents to have their children circumcised, and to perpetuate the cycle of genital cutting in America. In order to facilitate this misguided goal, the CDC is attempting to publish and release these guidelines to the American public in 2015.
In its proposed policy, the CDC has given mere lip service to the ethical issues with forced genital cutting. With our petition, we seek to inform legislative leaders in the Congressional Subcommittee that oversees the CDC that many circumcised men are extremely dissatisfied over what was done to them. Many legislators may be unaware of the number of people opposed to circumcision. Our petition will help to change that.
This petition will be presented to members of Congress before the January 16, 2015 deadline. Please sign our petition now !
Sign the petition and let’s give tomorrows babies a better chance to remain intact.
We will additionally forward any comments entered on the bottom of this page to Congressional members.
