The Bay Area Intactivists table turned out to be a hit among Bay Area Birth Justice Fair attendees last Saturday in Oakland. In keeping with the fair's focus on maternal and infant mortality, the intactivist table featured the names of children who had died as a result of circumcision. The half dozen intactivists who were outfitted in shirts proclaiming the human right to genital integrity were hard to miss as they circulated throughout the fair which was held at the Uhuru House. Visitors to the intactivist booth were educated on the care of intact boys as well as the damage caused by circumcision. Resources on non-surgical foreskin restoration were also available for those who were interested.
