Stop Infant Circumcision Society
As part of our effort to pass legislation protecting boys from genital mutilation in the USA, MGMbill.org urges the United Nations to formally classify male genital mutilation as a human rights violation. Although the U.N. currently recognizes that females have the right to keep their genital organs intact, it does not provide the same recognition to males. This double standard in United Nations policy provides political cover for legislators in the USA who would rather avoid dealing with the issue of MGM.
By allowing parents and guardians to circumcise boys for medically unnecessary reasons when a child is not capable of providing consent, the United Nations violates numerous provisions in several of its own treaties, including the U.N. Universal Declaration on Human Rights, the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the U.N. International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights. These violations were brought to the attention of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in 2001 both orally and in writing byNOCIRC. However, the U.N. has yet to take action.
MGM Bill proposal (PDF, MS Word) to rewrite the U.S. Female Genital Mutilation Act of 1996 so that boys are also protected from genital mutilation (commonly referred to as circumcision). It is partly modeled after the original FGM Bill that was submitted to the House of Representatives on February 14, 1995, along with its companion bill in the Senate (S. 1030, PDF).
Please lets all stand and protect our human rights! Each and every one of us on this planet have rights. Lets defend and preserve them!
