Informed medical opinion is now unanimous that circumcision confers no benefits.
Circumcision is a cultural phenomenon that affects 15.3 million children and young adults annually.
In terms of gender, 13.3 million boys and 2 million girls are subjected to the involuntary
removal of part or all of their external sex organs every year.
Their external sex organs cut off for reasons that defy logic and violate basic human rights.
Doctors, parents, and politicians have been misled into thinking that circumcision is beneficial,
necessary, and harmless.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the rights of the child
and other important international texts don't mention the right to physical integrity,
most probably to avoid interpreting it as a condemnation of male circumcision.
UNICEF never produced any document on male circumcision, and always refused to
open the debate about this subject.
