WHAT'S HAPPENING TO TENS OF MILLIONS OF AFRICAN MEN: NEEDLESS CIRCUMCISIONS  

BOSTON - May 21, 2017 - An article on African circumcisions by Executive Director Ronald Goldman, Ph.D., is published today in an African newspaper, News Ghana. The title is, "Circumcision for HIV Prevention is Harmful, Ineffective, and Tragic." Other articles by Goldman have been published in other African newspapers. According to Goldman, the primarly American-funded campaign to promote and perform circumcisions in Africa is misguided.

Why does Goldman write articles about Africans? "I care about them. Millions of  circumcisions will have adverse physical, sexual, and psychological effects on African men and society. Then circumcisions will be forced on children and future generations. We must do what we can to warn them. We must also call on our goverment to stop wasting our money on this harmful practice."

Goldman is the author of Circumcision: The Hidden Trauma and has participated in over 200 media interviews. He also gives lectures and seminars on circumcision and counsels parents and circumcised men.
