Just a Snip

In my most recent episode of the Ra-Men, I spoke to Lena Lena Nyhus, founder of ‘Intact Denmark’ and ‘Just a Snip’, organizations opposed to the circumcision of children too young to consent. Female circumcision is already identified as genital mutilation in her home country of Denmark. So now she advocates for the rights of boys against being cut when there is no medical reason to do so, and a number of very good reasons not to.


Lena welcomes discussion and shared a number of contact links.

She also provided a number of links relevant to this discussion.
