Doctors Opposing Circumcision

Stated Mission

“We are an international network of physicians dedicated to protecting the genital integrity and eventual autonomy of all children, serving both health professionals and the public through education, support, and advocacy.

Doctors Opposing Circumcision (D.O.C.) is dedicated to ending routine, non-therapeutic circumcision – the genital cutting of infants.
We endeavor to raise awareness and challenge prevailing opinion. We provide support and guidance to parents and medical providers who wish to make honest and thoughtful decisions, regardless of tradition or cultural pressures.”
