American Academy of Pediatrics Protest

Date: 
Saturday, October 20, 2012 - 8:00am to Tuesday, October 23, 2012 - 5:00pm
Location: 
Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
Address: 
900 Convention Center Blvd, New Orleans

Following up on our recent American Academy of Pediatrics protest which included a SHAME Award presentation ceremony, members of Bay Area Intactivists will coverge with other human rights advocates from across the country in New Orleans during the the AAP 2012 National Conference and Exhibition to protest the AAP's failure to discourage its members from performing routine infant circumcision. It has been more than 40 years since the AAP first acknowledged that there is no valid medical indication for routine infant circumcision but American doctors are still looking for excuses to continue the practice. Join us in New Orleans to educate American pediatricians about the human right to genital integrity and to protest the AAP's lack of moral courage to oppose non-consensual, non-therapeutic, genital surgery.
