The Voice of Change welcomes Georganne Chapin, executive director of IntactAmerica.org to the program today. She will discuss how routine infant male circumcision constitutes a human rights violation on a massive scale, asking how we as a culture can condemn female genital mutilation, while continuing to embrace the cosmetic, medically unnecessary cutting of baby boys’ genitals. Georganne Chapin is the founding executive director of Intact America, an organization that is changing the way Americans think about circumcision. Expectant parents find a true ally in Chapin, who supplies accurate health information through Intact America's website and fights for children by demanding that public health officials reveal the truth about this needless surgery. Her "Circumcision Debate" article, published in Hudson Valley Parent magazine, highlights her dedication to the intactivist cause. She also writes frequently about the issue on Intact America's blog.
Chapin writes and presents widely in the U.S. and abroad on bioethics and health care reform. She is frequently quoted in the press, and has appeared on national and local television and radio. She earned her B.A. in Anthropology from Barnard College, her M.A. and M.Phil. degrees in Sociomedical Sciences from Columbia University, and a J.D., cum laude, with certificates in Health Law and International Law from Pace University School of Law. She has taught as an adjunct professor of law at Pace.

Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin, which is the skin that covers the tip of the male sexual organ. In the United States, it is often done before a new baby leaves the hospital. There are medical benefits and risks to circumcision. Possible benefits include a lower risk of urinary tract infections, penile cancer and sexually transmitted diseases. The risks include pain and a low risk of bleeding or infection. The practice of circumcision dates to ancient times. In ancient Egypt, prior to biblical times, circumcision was performed to improve male hygiene. Later, routine circumcision of male infants was part of the Abrahamic covenants with Jehovah, giving rise to religious circumcisions that continue to this day in the Jewish and Muslim faiths.
In Africa, attitudes towards circumcisions are changing from traditional beliefs into health and preventive measures. Until recently, the lines of circumcisions were clearly defined by cultures and traditions.
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. Intact America operates under the auspices of the Hudson Center for Health Equity & Quality, a not-for-profit organization that is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the internal revenue code. 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. Her "Circumcision Debate" article, published in Hudson Valley Parent magazine, highlights her dedication to the intactivist cause.

As a society we get outraged with female circumcision. We KNOW that this is genital mutilation. Yet when it comes to our baby boys being born in the United States, we quietly hand them over to the doctors to mutilate their cock in the first 3 days of their life. WHY? (i am sorry i had to use the word cock instead of the "p" word, since BlogTalk Radion wont let me use the word "p" its might offend some people. I dont get it either) Whats worst we see no connection to how this violent act shapes our boys into men, and how it might effect their relationship to women. This conversation is dedicated to the 500,000+ male babies per year who got their cock mutilated right here in the United States of America.

Wichita, KS – Parents want their children to grow into intelligent, creative, caring adults, but according to Dr. Barb Morrison, the care currently provided to newborn infants may be causing more harm than good.
Dr. Morrison, or DrBarb, is a certified nurse midwife (CNM) and among the most vocal advocates of “Kangaroo Care,” the method of holding an infant skin-to skin to strengthen the bond between parent and child, facilitate breastfeeding and encourage social development. DrBarb is part of a growing movement among health care practitioners who hope to see Kangaroo Care practiced more broadly to become routine procedure in infant care.
“It’s about listening and acting on parental instincts from the very second you have a child,” explains DrBarb. “Newborns need warmth, protection, comfort and ready access to food. That habitat is skin-to-skin on mom’s chest, or Kangaroo Care.”
By nurturing through proximity, the infant feels more secure, opening the path to physical and psychological health.
“There’s a dance that goes on between mothers and their infants, the initiation of communication,” says DrBarb. “We did not survive as a species without holding and skin-to-skin touch. Kangaroo Care is a rediscovery of the instinctual relationship between mothers and their infants.”
While we may want our children to develop independence, it’s not appropriate at such a young age. Infants separated from their mothers during the first months feel they’ve been abandoned. As a result, the midbrain becomes more developed, which can lead to bullying, personality disorders, aggression and even violence.
“We’ve got to get the word out!” says DrBarb. “Having mothers do Kangaroo Care through much of the first two years is a much easier solution than therapy, down the road.”
