This week a woman was convicted of grievous bodily harm after she procured a circumcision on behalf of somebody else's baby boy by pretending to be his mother. The
conviction is welcome – but as Megan Manson writes below, the case is a troubling reminder of our society's inconsistent and harmful attitude to infant genital
This horrific case should be a reminder that all children deserve protection from unnecessary alterations to their most sensitive body parts. And our campaigning
has helped to move the debate over the ethics of infant circumcision into the mainstream of public conversation.
Meanwhile we're looking forward to seeing some of our supporters tomorrow at our Bradlaugh Lecture with Andrew Moffat. This event has proved popular and tickets
have now sold out, so unfortunately there won't be any available on the door.
If you think our work is worthwhile, please consider supporting it by joining or donating
to the NSS. Thank you.
