Whose Body, Whose Rights?
Examining the Ethics and the Human Rights Issue of Infant Male Circumcision
Dillonwood productions, 1995
Executive producer: Tim Hammond
In a new era of children's rights, this independently produced two-part social issue documentary compassionately explores genital mutilation of unconsenting children, euphemistically termed "circumcision." It boldly and responsibly addresses these vital issues long overdue for inner reflection and cultural self-examination:
- history and medical ethics
- consequences of circumcision
- evolving religious attitudes
- legal and constitutional issues
- foreskin functions
- men's awareness and uncircumcision
- medical conscientious objection
- children's rights
