Steven's Los Angeles Radio Show Overviews Recent Important Events in Intactivism


On Wednesday, June 12, 2013, I appeared on Maria Sanchez' hour-long show, "The Maria Sanchez Show," on Los Angeles-based Internet radio station Maria is a longtime friend of ARC and of intactivism and we are glad to see that she has returned to active media work.  We discussed (1) several important legal developments including the recent $1.3 million award in an infant circumcision case in the Chicago area as well as circumcision-related lawsuits in Queens and in South Africa and a lawsuit filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center over the genital mutilation of an intersex child; (2) recent news of and some of the larger issues raised by the development of a new circumcision device (the PrePex) that is endorsed by the World Health Organization and is intended to help promote the practice in third world countries as an asserted preventive of HIV and AIDS; and (3) an overview of the continually increasing success of intactivism and the work of Attorneys for the Rights of the Child including the excellent achievements by Legal Advisor Peter Adler and by webmaster Jonathan Friedman.

You can listen to a podcast of the show below or through

Our next newsletter is due out shortly.
