Eight Physicians Tell Their Stories
and reveal the ethical dilemmas of physicians who circumcise newborns
For every parent considering circumcision for their newborn, every physician who circumcises and every medical student.
Seven family practice physicians and one emergency room physician in Santa Fe, New Mexico, struggle with their consciences as they examine the ethical and human rights issues of infant circumcision. Three of the physicians tell why they stopped circumcising. The rest tell why they continue to circumcise or to advocate circumcision and discuss what considerations might lead them to change their minds.
UPDATE 2021: Recent communication from one of the physicians in this video states that since this video was made (1998) all of those interviewed eventually stopped performing newborn circumcision.
"The film is...the most convincing thing I've seen yet. The doctors are amazingly articulate. I have always said, we must let them tell their truth. Surely this work was divinely inspired."
- Jody McLaughlin, Editor The Compleat Mother Magazine
"Doctors communicating frankly and openly about the practice of circumcision. A compelling video.
It should be viewed by all potential parents and medical care personnel."
- Dean Edell, MD, Medical Journalist
Dr. Christopher Fletcher is one of those interviewed in this video.
