End Male Circumcision Petition Hits 500

More than 500 people have signed an online petition to End Unnecessary Male Circumcision in the UK that was launched just three weeks ago.

The petition - which you can sign here now - highlights the fact that a baby boy bled to death in Oldham as a result of Unnecessary Male Circumcision, states that the practice is risky, abusive and unnecessary and affects 1 billion men and boys worldwide.

If you sign this petition today you will add your voice to the growing number of people who are calling on  Government to take immediate action on behalf of the 500,000 boys in the UK who are affected by or at risk of Unnecessary Male Circumcision:

  • Setting up a national register of all male circumcisions performed in public, private and community settings to assess and monitor the scale of the problem

  • Taking action to reduce the number of ‘medical’ circumcisions that are performed unnecessarily on boys who could have their condition treated without surgery
  • Starting work towards giving boys the same legal rights and strategic support that girls are currently given to protect them from unnecessary genital cutting and mutilation
As well as signing the petition yourself you can help us to End Unnecessary Male Circumcision in the UK by sharing on social media sites or emailing the petition to you friends.
