Rosemary Romberg (born 20 February 1947) is an American intactivist from Omaha, who lives in Fullerton. She has studied anthropology and sociology at the University of California in Santa Barbara.
In 1976, after Romberg had given birth to her first two sons, she became a regret mom while being pregnant with her third child. On her own website, she tells her own story about how she finally became an intactivist.
Romberg was active with the earliest known US intactivism group, INTACT, in the 1970s, and wrote "Circumcision: The Painful Dilemma" in 1985. Romberg set the standard for remorse, grace, and redemption, and has saved generations of baby boys from circumcision, and she's still working at it with her website.
“ Our mission as intactivists is to protect babies and children from this unnecessary atrocity, not to insist that grown men who had no say over it many years ago have to be unhappy about it. ”
