Doctors Opposing Circumcision (D.O.C.) was founded to provide accurate information about the consequences of circumcision and to make available the scientific facts about the uniquely specialized, uniquely sensitive erogenous tissue that circumcision destroys. In the nine months since its founding, Doctors Opposing Circumcision has grown rapidly and now has medical representatives in all fifty of the United States, and in all of the Provinces and Territories of Canada as well as Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand the only other countries where doctors circumcise the citizens without a religious reason. In addition, Doctors Opposing Circumcision has members in countries such as Japan, where this practice is virtually unknown.
