Rosemary Romberg Wiener (20 February 1947 in Omaha, NE, USA – 7 February 2020 in Anchorage, AK, USA) was an American intactivist from Omaha, who lived 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.[1]

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 worked at it with her website until her end.

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.
