Circumcision of Boys and Girls- What Parents Should Know!!!
We at Bay Area Birth Justice are proud to present a forum on two of the many important topics facing today’s parents.
Our focus is the body integrity of children: Who decides what goes into or what is removed from our children’s bodies and why? What are the pros, cons, benefits or risks?
We will present speakers and panels discussion how circumcision affects both sexes ( as well as intersexed children).
Many of our speakers will be members of Bay Area Intactivists and other birth workers and educators, who will discuss the controversy regarding the circumcision of both boys and girls in this country and world wide.
One of our featured speakers will be Tova Springer RN an ardent intactivist as well as devoted L&D Nurse!
Lunch will be available for sale!!!
Child care will be available on site!
