LA CROSSE (WKBT) – Motorists in La Crosse and Onalaska Saturday may have seen a group of protesters rallying in front of new billboards.
The group, called Bloodstained Men, is advocating for an end to the circumcision of infants.
These protesters, who refer to themselves as “intactivists”, have been doing multiple tours all over the United States for the past ten years. They say circumcision is harmful genital mutilation.
The group’s CEO David Atkinson says this isn’t a medical issue, it’s a human rights issue.
“We would like to live in a world where children are protected from genital mutilation,” said Atkinson. “The more you learn about foreskin, the more infuriating it is that this body part was stolen from us when we were too young to defend ourselves.”
