from Hebrew site:

Circumcision vs. Vaccination
& Ear-Piercing

Circumcision is as beneficial as vaccination
and as harmless as ear-piercing.

Vaccination adds medicine to the body
but circumcision cuts off part of the body.
Vaccination does not damage normal anatomical functioning, but circumcision does.
Vaccination is practiced worldwide and supported by
all major medical associations, but circumcision is not.
Piercing punctures the ear lobe but doesn't remove anything from the body or alter any ear functions.
Circumcision amputates a beneficial genital structure and diminishes natural functioning by destroying the foreskin, a unique part of the penis that can never
truly be replaced.

Whose Body,
Whose Rights?

Welcome to

Increasing numbers of men are aware that medical and parental ignorance of
male genital anatomy & function perpetuates circumcision customs.

Living with the long-term physical, sexual and psychological consequences of
a surgery that we did not choose,
we have both a right and a responsibility
to oppose a practice that has harmed us
and continues to harm innocent children.

Our claims are corroborated and our position is validated by the Global Survey of Circumcision Harm.

Tim Hammond, Founder

National Organization to Halt the Abuse and Routine Mutilation of Males is a non-profit, educational and direct-action men's network organized in 1992 in San Francisco, California by Tim Hammond to protest the non-therapeutic circumcision of healthy male infants and children. It gained its inspiration from an earlier group, The Victims Speak.

MISSION: To raise public awareness about male genital cutting (MGC) practices and increase public understanding of genital integrity as a fundamental human right. We exist to:

pearl.gif (960 bytes)  educate men about the functions & benefits of normal, intact male genitalia;

pearl.gif (960 bytes)  document the damage caused by male genital cutting customs and expose them as violations of basic
human rights to physical integrity and self-determination;

pearl.gif (960 bytes)  empower men with the education necessary to oppose male genital mutilation in their own families and at local, national and international levels;

pearl.gif (960 bytes)  support men in other cultures who want to re-examine their own male genital cutting traditions.

NOHARMM stands in solidarity with women against female genital cutting (FGC), and firmly opposes
sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia and anti-Semitism. We impugn no gender, race or religion, but assert
that an intact body is a universal human right.

PROGRAMS:  To support progressive social change advocates.

Whose body is it anyway?
The forced amputation of a healthy part of an unconsenting
infant's or child's genitals,
whether in the name of medicine, religion
or social custom, is a human rights violation.
