National and International Laws Defending Children from Genital Mutilation
Chicago Conference - On April 16, 1999, we presented Friday's closing talk at the Chicago "Circumcision Update: Medical, Ethical and Legal Issues" conference organized by NOCIRC. Our presentation was entitled "National and International Laws Defending Children from Genital Mutilation." The presentation surveyed pertinent statutory and human rights law and also delved into an overview of the intactivist political movement which is one of the leading forces today struggling to "put the heart back in the law." Immediately following this presentation, we participated on a "panel of experts" along with other activists.
