International doctors’ organizations condemn the AAP’s stance on circumcision

Since the anniversary of the AAP’s statement is coming soon (the AAP’s statement was made on August 27, 2012), it might be worth it to do a news story about the condemnation of the AAP’s statement on infant male circumcision by 38 doctors representing various international medical associations. This is groundbreaking and historic. Why? When was the last time you have heard of so many doctors and their organizations condemning another doctors’ organization?

I am including a reference to the American Academy of Pediatrics own journal which presents the international condemnation of the AAP:
