The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a draft of proposed guidelines that would recommend male circumcision for prevention of STIs including HIV, HPV and herpes as well as for the prevention of vaginal infections, urinary tract infections and penile cancer.
The proposed guidelines are open for public commenting until January 16, 2015. Please click here and leave a well-formed comment.
Compelling reasons exist for strong concern among attorneys and the public about the various types of damage caused by circumcision. These include pain and suffering, psychological harm, behavioral changes, irreversible reduction or loss of full sexual function, and underreported tragic complications, including deaths. Moreover, no satisfactory medical justification for routine circumcision has ever been demonstrated. Click here to view the Attorneys for the Rights of the Child brochure.
