In response to pro-circumcision guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control in tandem with a publication by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Intact America enlists other intactivist organizations to release a joint statement. The statement reads: : “The CDC exaggerates the benefits of circumcision, minimizes its risks, utterly ignores that functions and benefits of the foreskin, and blithely disregards critical ethical and legal questions regarding the rights of all children to enjoy their normal, natural sex organs.” Without question due to this outcry, the CDC’s guidelines die on the vine.
