The campaign group Men Do Complain held a vigil on Wednesday the 22nd of February outside the British Medical Association (BMA) in London. The reason for the vigil was to highlight the fact that the BMA was discussing ethics, but the non-therapeutic cutting of boy’s genitals was not be on the agenda.
Richard Duncker of Men Do Complain said:
“The vigil went very well the public really are on our side. Several circumcised men approached us and quite openly said that they were glad someone was taking a stand.
“A lot of doctors on their way into the meeting made us feel very welcome. A peadiatric surgeon made it clear he was angry with his colleagues for continuing to circumcise children who have no need of such treatment and cannot give informed consent.
