Eleanor LeBourdais (died 2016) was a Canadian medical journalist. PubMed Central indexes 82 published articles from 1973 through 2014.

She wrote a factually accurate, but controversial, article in 1995 about the decline in the practice of non-therapeutic infant circumcision in Canada.


The Canadian Medical Association Journal published letters in response to the article by LeBourdais on 1 October 1995. There was a letter by Robin Chorn, who alleged antisemitism, and another letter by Dr. Brian W. Gregory, who defended the practice of non-therapeutic neonatal circumcision on medical grounds. This was followed by a response by LeBourdais and a letter of support by Dr. George C. Denniston.[1]
