The Voice of Change welcomes Georganne Chapin to the show.  The topic:  Thinking about Circumcision? Take the Whole Baby Home! Georganne is the founding executive director of Intact American, an organization that is changing the way American's think about circumcision.  Chapin directs the national advocacy and public education campaign to end the practice of routine circumcision in the United Sates.  In today's program, Georganne Chapin discusses the physical and psychological effects circumcision has on infants and the men they will become.  Circumcision painfully and permanently alters a baby boy's organs removing healthy, protective, functional tissue from the male organ and exposing the child to unnecessary pain and medical risks –for no medical benefit. Regarding this program Georganne writes, “With good information as well as many videos now available over the internet, American parents are learning that their child’s natural body is nothing to fear, and the circumcision rate is falling”.  We’ll talk about why.
