I spoke on October 18 at the Twentieth Annual Thomas A. Pitts Lectureship in Medical Ethics, at the Medical University of South Carolina pursuant to a conference titled, “Ethical and Legal Issues in Pediatrics.” I debated Dr. Michael Brady, a member of the AAP’s Task Force on Circumcision, in a talk entitled, “Newborn Male Circumcision is Unethical and Should be Illegal.” The title was not my choice but after some consideration, we decided to accept it. At the same event, I also appeared in a “Seminar on Pediatric Controversies” opposite several noted supporters of circumcision.

We are hoping to publish recordings of the events in which I participated to our website.
