You can help:
Anyone: If all, who wish the cutting would stop (and there are
thousands in North Dakota--perhaps a majority if fully informed), would
simply let others know how they feel by putting their name on
this list, it would go a long way to stopping the harm.
Students can request that information be provided in classes
in such courses as: parenting and child development, health, psychology
and sociology, biology, and especially in any subject that addresses
human and civil rights, like government, literature and history. At the
college level, similar subjects should address the issue, including
philosophy and ethics.
Teachers can provide students with information in the subjects
above, and administrators can assure teachers that it is
appropriate to do so. Although we still live in an age ruled by by fear
on this taboo subject, this issue must be addressed in the same context
as any other civil rights issue..
Parents can ask administrators and teachers to address the
issue and support them when they do. Too often those wanting to censure
information are the first to speak up.

Physicians can stop soliciting circumcisions, and if parents
request it, simply explain to them that they don't do them anymore since
there are no therapeutic reasons and there are damages. Compare the
decline of circumcision as a routine procedure to how appendectomies and
tonsillectomies are no longer prophylactic performed. >Join Doctors Opposing Circumcision (DOC). Physicians should be prepared to
tell the baby, who will someday look them straight in the eye, why, with
all the information available, you cut him.
Let others know you are concerned. One way to tell others you
too are willing to be counted amongst those who want the unnecessary
cutting of infants and children to stop, is to add
your name to this list. If you can contribute financially to
this effort to distribute this information and bring the issue to a
legal forum, please do so here.
