Bay Area Intactivists will hold a peaceful protest outside the Moscone Center during the ACOG 63rd Annual Clinical Meeting to confront those who force genital modifications on healthy male, female, or intersex children. All forms of unnecessary genital alteration violate medical ethics and the human right to bodily integrity when performed without the informed consent of the patient.

Bay Area Intactivists will provide protest signs and literature for distribution but you are also welcome to bring your own. We expect to have the largest attendance for the protest on Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3 but we encourage you to attend any day that the conference is taking place to help us remind medical professionals that their role is to heal, not harm.
