Circumcision Legality/Consent Lawyers

“[T]here is a growing body of law to suggest that if you have been circumcised without  your consent (that is, even if your parents consented for you as a child), you can sue the doctor when you reach 18 years of age.  The laws here vary as well, but many states allow a six month to two year window from your 18th birthday to initiate litigation for any violations you suffer as a child.  If you had a circumcision performed on you for non-medical reasons, then it may qualify as a personal injury, regardless of parental consent.  This is especially true if you’ve suffered any physical, sexual or psychological problems resulting from your circumcision.  Time is of the essence for this type of litigation, so you should contact a personal injury lawyer immediately.”

“Compelling reasons exist for strong concern among attorneys and the public about the various types of damage caused by circumcision. These include pain and suffering, psychological harm, behavioral changes, irreversible reduction or loss of full sexual function, and underreported tragic complications, including deaths. Moreover, no satisfactory medical justification for routine circumcision has ever been demonstrated.”
