Did you know that a baby boy bled to death in London this year as a result of a medically unnecessary circumcision? Or that a woman in Salford will be tried for manslaughter later this year because a baby boy she circumcised for religious reasons also bled to death?
This shocking news has so far been kept from the national media and when baby boys are bleeding to death in the UK and not afforded the same legal protection as girls against medically unnecessary genital cutting, then doing nothing is no longer an option
To help us prevent further cases of death and injury from this medically unnecessary practice that affects more than half a million boys in the UK, The Men’s Network is seeking to work with a broad range of partners to tackle this issue - and we’d like supporters and readers to consider what action you and your organization can take to help us address this problem
To help you take the first step towards making a decision today we have five actions for you to take and we’d like you to consider choosing one and taking action now. We believe that big problems can be resolved when enough people take small actions together, so please take one action now:
