"American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG)" is the name of the largest gynecological and obstetric medical society in the United States, based in Washington, DC, with over 55,000 members. ACOG is a nonprofit organization of women's health care physicians advocating highest standards of practice, continuing member education and public awareness of women's health care issues.

In September 2012, ACOG has updated his FAQ on the topic Newborn Circumcision.[1] Thereon ACOG repeats the (now disproved) allegations of the WHO and the AAP, circumcision would have mor advantages than disadvantages and would protect against various diseases.
