How Parents Are Sold On Circumcision By Medical Societies
Why do doctors still perform circumcisions when “no medical society in the world” recommends it as medically necessary? What do doctors say behind closed doors to one another about the lost business of NOT circumcising? What do parents need to know about the marketing of circumcision? How do you know you are making an informed, conscious choice with such a well designed campaign to play on your fears and push you to status quo compliance?
“I think the marketing of circumcision should be taught at major business schools as one of the most ingenious campaigns ever launched. Every objection has been managed. Every possible fear has been dug up and dangled… The part of me that is a lawyer that marvels at an opponent’s excellent argument stands in complete, utter awe of the people who market this,” says John V. Geisheker, JD, LLM, executive director of Doctors Opposing Circumcision, DOC.
