Campaign against Circumcision Launched by Dutch Doctors' Association

The Royal Dutch Medical Association (KNMG) sent ARC an email on September 14, 2011 announcing that it has started a campaign against circumcision of boys. This project follows in the wake of the excellent official statement opposing male circumcision that was issued by the same organization in May 2010. They asked that we pass the good news along to our friends and colleagues and that anyone who appreciates their action consider indicating so in feedback on the article. ARC has already posted its statement of support for the KNMG.
