BERLIN: Muslims, Jews demonstrate for male cutting

When slavery was a custom,every right minded person supported it. Nothing is as powerful a legitimizer as social custom,even more powerful than law. ...

I believe the time has come to acknowledge that the practice of routine neonatal circumcision rests on the absurd premise that the only mammal in creation born in a condition that requires immediate surgical correction is the human male. If the penile foreskin is not merely non functional but a biological disadvantage so severe as to justify its immediate surgical ablation, then surely, it must have atrophied by now.

Van Lewis in 2006
William Van Brunt (Van) Lewis
in 2006

Van Lewis died in Tallahassee, Florida on Monday June 6, 2011 at 12.15 of pancreatic cancer. He was 68.

Van was the earliest known Intactivist. On December 16, 1970, he and his brother Ben carried signs saying "Infant Circumcision is a Sex Crime. Abolish it." "Sex Criminals for Hire? Inquire Within." "Abolish Infant Circumcision." and "Men's Liberation" outside the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, Tallahassee, Florida, and were arrested. They were charged with disturbing the peace and spent a day in the cells. Van took an active part in the movement until mid-April this year, when his last messages were a list of circumcision deaths.

"You can catch more flies with honey AND vinegar
than you can with either one alone"

- Van Lewis
