Do not use federal $s to pay for another country's circumcisions!

To be delivered to President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

According to a news story on cmsnews.com titled "U.S. Will Spend $24.5M to Circumcise Men in Swaziland" the U.S. Agency for International Development will be spending $24.5 million to circumcise males. Never mind that circumcision is not proven to prevent STDs, it's just not our place.
There are currently 69 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100 signatures!

Petition Background

I am circumcised. I chose not to circumcise my own children for many reasons, after doing significant research. I do not appreciate my tax money going toward something I am against on multiple levels.
