Do babies feel pain? Does circumcision prevent HIV and penile cancer? Isn't the foreskin just extra skin? Circumcision is the most common pediatric surgery performed in the United States, yet few people know what it entails. Here's your chance to learn from one of the nation's leading authority on circumcision, Georganne Chapin M.Phil., J.S. Chapin is a healthcare expert, attorney, social justice advocate, and founding executive director of Intact America. Chapin has taught health law and bioethics at Pace University School of Law and bioethics to doctoral-level nursing students at Dominican College. Her opinion pieces have appeared in the New York Daily News, HuffPost, and Minneapolis Star Tribune, and she has been interviewed by The New York Times, the Economist, MSNBC, NBC10 (Philadelphia), WPSU radio, The New York Post, AskMen.com, SheKnows, Telemundo, Kacey Shine On, First Time Parent, Mel Magazine, South China Morning Post, the Guardian, and other media outlets. In addition to answering your questions, Chapin will read excerpts from her new memoir, "This Penis Business," published by Lucid House Publishing.
