Georganne Chapin joins Trish Causey to talk about the dangers of non-consensual circumcision that is routinely performed in the United States, even though it is not routinely done in the rest of the world.
Amputating a baby boy's foreskin leads to numerous side effects later, including healing complications, neurological isues, as well as increasing the potential for erectile dysfunction later in life.
Equally heinous is Female Genital Cutting, but that has been officially made illegal in the United States.
Intact America, founded in 2008 thanks to funding from a private donor, is the most recent expression of a movement against infant circumcision that has been active and expanding for decades. Intact America counts among its advisors many long-term Intactivists, as well as many new people who have embraced Intact America’s commitment to protect all babies and children–male and female–from the forced modification of their genitalia. Georganne Chapin, a leader in the fight for ethical, cost-effective and high quality health care, is Intact America’s founding executive director. Ms. Chapin holds a BA in anthropology from Barnard College, an MPhil in sociomedical sciences from Columbia University, and a JD from Pace University School of Law.
