According to his own statements, Professor Morten Frisch does not identify as an intactivist. Nevertheless, the area of genital integrity and the medical and ethical effects of circumcision are part of his areas of interest and he has published several papers about the subject.

Danish circumcision debate

In 2020, Frisch and 41 of his colleagues (chief physicians, specialists, ward doctors and junior doctors) protested in an open letter against the knee-jerk reaction to religious pressure that the Danish Agency for Patient Safety has shown in the issue of the boy circumcision problem.[1]
