NNMC is an abbreviation for Non-voluntary Neonatal Male Circumcision. This term has been used by Myers & Earp in their recent medical and ethical analysis "What is the best age to circumcise?"[1]

According to a footnote of the mentioned analysis, they use the term "non-voluntary" in keeping with a familiar distinction in bioethics, because it concerns a moral patient unable to express their will in relation to a given procedure, rather than "involuntary" which implies a moral agent able to express their will who refuses the procedure.[1]

NMNC does not decrease one's susceptibility to HIV infection.[2]
