Attorneys for the Rights of the Child Newsletter

We are proud to announce that, with the assistance of our able webmaster Jonathan Friedman, we have published at http://arclaw.org/sites/default/files/Newsletter/9-2.pdf the 26th issue of our newsletter (volume 9, number 2).

This issue, our longest ever at 70 pages, is stuffed with interesting readings: 1) responses by ARC to the recent policy statement of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP); 2) Colorado activists’ firsthand reports on their awesome success in first achieving a cessation of Medicaid funding for circumcision and then in preventing a legislative reversal of that victory; 3) analysis by ARC Legal Analyst Peter Adler of the recent German court victory and ensuing events; 4) an article by ARC Legal Analyst Peter Adler analyzing implications of the September 2011 death of an infant in a ritual circumcision; 5) no fewer than seven eyewitness photo and text reports on six recent important events including an Indiana intactivist retreat, Seattle Pride, San Francisco Pride, a conference organized by the Dutch Medical Association, Washington DC’s Genital Integrity Awareness Week, and last but not least, the Washington, DC International AIDS Society Meeting; 6) the schedule for the September-October Helsinki Symposium; 7) a listing of the contents of the upcoming Springer book containing the proceedings from the 2010 Berkeley Symposium; 8) Jonathan Friedman’s report on an event relating to circumcision and Christianity; 9) Anthony Levin’s summary of the far-ranging talk he made to Amnesty International Leeds; 10) a review of Glen Callenders’s recent performance piece, “The Revolution Will Not be Circumcised;” 11) reviews of a recent book on parental abuse of children; 12) reprints of five excellent blogs; 13) news reports; and more.
