Letter to Nurse Educators from Rosemary Romberg

Dear Nurse Educator,

I am writing to inform you that NOCIRC has produced a 20-minute
educational video about circumcision, narrated by Dean Edell, M.D.,
which you can view at http://www.nocirc.org/ You have NOCIRC’s
permission to download, copy, and distribute this free video for
educational purposes. Please consider uploading it to your own
website, if desired.

In addition, a Circumcision Resource page has been developed for
educators at http://www.icgi.org/birth_care_providers.htm Here you
will find videos, articles, and pamphlets that discuss various aspects
of the circumcision decision, as well as care of the intact child.
Included is “The Prepuce,” a video produced by George Denniston, M.D.,
that discusses in detail the anatomy and functions of the foreskin.
A growing number of men who wish they had been left intact (not
circumcised) are benefitting from non-surgical foreskin restoration.
You can learn more about this at http://www.norm.org/

A “New York Times” article reported that the U.S. circumcision rate has
fallen from 56% in 2006 to 32.5% in 2009, according to the CDC. See

Men when they turn 18 have the legal right to sue the doctor and
hospital that circumcised them unnecessarily as infants. One man has
already done that and received a financial settlement. See

Recent news articles have reported on African studies that claim to
show that circumcision prevents HIV. Dr. Dean Edell discusses these
studies, and how they relate to our own experience in the U.S. at

The Royal Dutch Medical Association (KNMG) on May 27, 2010 published
its policy statement, which states that the circumcision of underage
boys should be stopped. The society says that circumcising boys
without medical reason infringes upon the right to autonomy and the
right to bodily integrity. The KNMG statement can be downloaded and
read at

I hope the materials above will be useful to you in your efforts to
educate future nurses about proper care of the genitally intact child
and circumcision. Please feel free to share this information with your
colleagues. I would be interested in your impressions of these
educational materials, if you wish to share them with me.

Sincerely, Rosemary Romberg

What made you become an intactivist?

Basically it was a no-brainer for me. I didn't even know what circumcision was until after my daughter was born 9 years ago. I started researching the subject because I knew the next one would be a boy. As soon as I found out there is actually a part of the penis *removed*... amputated... that was it for me, I was dead set against it. I wasn't even aware of doctors not using anesthesia until only a few months ago. That knowledge made me feel even stronger about being against it. I became an intactivist because I do not believe in altering or removing body parts from a non-consenting individual.

Ask me anything about circumcision or intactivism!
