Letter from Georganne Chapin regarding CDC and The New York Times on Circumcision

Yesterday, The New York Times ran an article about the CDC's upcoming decision on circumcision. The story quoted me and mentioned Intact America's efforts, as well as our billboard currently making the rounds outside the CDC's conference in Atlanta.

From our booth here at the CDC conference, I can tell you that this article is making waves. And the fact is, the more attention we put on the CDC's possible recommendation of circumcision, the more uncomfortable they get.

Will you help us make sure the pressure on the CDC continues?

Write a letter to the editor of The New York Times responding to the article and publicly demanding a truthful statement about circumcision from the CDC.

The CDC is reviewing flawed new studies right now and could recommend circumcision for our baby boys as soon as this year, ignoring the risks and ethics of routine surgery on newborn infants.

We know that circumcision is unnecessary and harmful – and it's unethical to perform needless surgery on non-consenting baby boys. We need your help to make sure the CDC gets the message, not only in Atlanta, but across the country.

The longer this story stays in the media, the better it is for those of us seeking to protect baby boys. This is exactly the kind of attention that will help delay or postpone a final decision from the CDC, and you can help us keep the pressure on!

Send a message to the CDC and the public by writing a letter to the editor of The New York Times today.

Thank you for all of your support.

Georganne Chapin
Executive Director, Intact America
