Welcome to the Doctors Opposing Circumcision website. D.O.C. is an organization of physicians, and others who are opposed to non-therapeutic neonatal circumcision. D.O.C. has members in 50 States, 12 Canadian Provinces and Territories, and in nations on six continents. These doctors recognize that no one has the right to forcibly remove sexual body parts from another individual. They also believe that doctors should have no role in this painful, unnecessary procedure inflicted on the newborn. D.O.C. carries out its work in accordance with its mission statement.

Whose Body, Whose Rights?

" Whose Body, Whose Rights?", the award-winning children's rights documentary, is now available for online viewing. This is the only circumcision-related video that explores important issues not addressed in other programs and it's now the only video that can be purchased both as a videotape AND viewed online.

The program is available to both high-speed DSL and 56K Dial-Up users. The viewing format is QuickTime, although a Windows Media Player version will be available soon.
