Genital autonomy advocates confront San Francisco Medical Society

In August, the San Francisco Medical Society held a physician's networking social on a Thursday evening at Ironside restaurant in San Francisco. As the doctors arrived, they were met by a group of intactivists wielding messages such as "Foreskin is not a birth defect" and "Forced circumcision violates medical ethics." The protesters decided to target the event due to the San Francisco Medical Society's condonation of non-therapeutic infant circumcision.

Armed with protest signs, intactivists stand ready for their encounter with members of the San Francisco Medical Society.

Activists to ACLU: "Stop defending forced circumcision"

It has been known for some time that the American Civil Liberties Union opposes men's right to decide the fate of their own foreskin. In 2011 after over 12,000 San Francisco voter signatures qualified a ballot initiative to restrict circumcision to consenting adults, the ACLU of Northern California sued the city of San Francisco on the grounds that such a law would prevent families from practicing genital-cutting rituals on their sons.

Intactivists hold signs condemning the ACLU's defense of forced circumcision.
