On May 7th, Cologne, Germany completely banned circumcision in the entire city for patients not old enough to decide for themselves. As of July 21st, that ban was overturned.
For our Get Together on August 11th, we’re going to look at the practice of circumcision. Our guest will be Norm Cohen, State Director of NOCIRC, the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers.
NOCIRC of Michigan is the state chapter of the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers. Founded in 1986, NOCIRC states that they are the center of expertise on circumcision. They are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization of health care professionals and children’s health activists
Norm Cohen has been active in the anti-circumcision movement at the state, national, and international levels as the Director of NOCIRC of Michigan since its founding in 1994. He appeared in the 1996 documentary on male circumcision, “Whose Body, Whose Rights?”. He has spoken before many groups and been interviewed by local and national newspapers, radio, and television.
Come and join us for lively discussion, drinks, dinner and debate! This is a good event for Skeptics of Michigan to come together and discuss local, national, worldwide items affecting skeptics. All are welcome to listen and take part.
I hope to see you all there!
