Incredibly sad news: Jonathon Conte has taken his own life

Jonathon Conte, the founder of this website and a powerful force for saving babies from the barbarity of circumcision, committed suicide on Monday May 9. He left no note, but apparently the pain and rage over his own mutilation finally overwhelmed him. We all grieve.

There is much discussion on Facebook, and some on the BAI Discuss email list (see above).

There is a memorial forming of photos, stories, flowers at 18th and Castro in SF. There will be a gathering there Sunday May 15 at 4pm.

All other BAI events will continue as planned.

Rest in Power, Jonathon!
