Team Novoglan have a very focused mission - we want all men to have a healthy foreskin. The foreskin plays an integral role in the protection of the glans and in sexual stimulation and arousal. No boy should ever be left to grow into a man without a foreskin, unless a genuine medical emergency requires this to be the case. So building on the great work of Intact America we say the first 10 reasons not to circumcise are because:

1: there is no medical reason for "routine" circumcision!
2: the foreskin is not a birth defect, it is a highly sensitive and important structure on the penis. It protects the glans and allows adult men to enjoy sexual activity! 3: you wouldn't circumcise your baby girl - as that is also a form of mutilation! 4: your baby does not want to be circumcised - your baby has bodily rights that need to be respected! 5: removing part of a baby's penis is painful, risky, and harmful!
6: times and attitudes have changed - treatments for the small percentage of men with foreskin problems are readily available! 7: most medically advanced nations do not circumcise baby boys!
8: caring for and cleaning the foreskin is easy - and childhood phimosis is normal!
9: circumcision does not prevent HIV or other diseases - Condoms do!
10: children should be protected from permanent bodily alteration inflicted on them without their consent in the name of culture, religion, profit, or parental preference!
For parents worried about phimosis, be reassured that all modern pediatric colleges recognize that childhood phimosis is a common phenomena that is a normal part of the development of the foreskin and almost all boys, 99% will grow out of it. When it comes to men, approximately 3% of men will develop phimosis at some stage in their life. Fortunately phimosis is readily treatable with either steroid cream and or gentle foreskin stretching technique. Don't take his foreskin away! He needs it and he wants it! He will thank you when he's older!
The Foreskin - Leave it alone and it will look after itself!
