Do Not Retract Information Pack




If you or your loved one has found yourself subjected to the malpractice that is forced retraction, you may request that an information pack be sent to the retracting clinician here. Packs are sent by professionals in health care who volunteer time with Saving Our Sons and cost approximately $4 in printed materials and shipping. You may include a note with your donation toward this cost, or email SavingSons@gmail.com with details of what occurred. Please be sure to include the retracting physician or nurse's name, practice, and mailing address, whenever available.




If you are not able to cover the $4 cost, please email SavingSons@gmail.com with your request. To help in covering 'Don't Retract' packs that others request and are unable to fund, you may do so here or by mail to the address below: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=G6VLETWSGSR22 Our goal is to correspond directly with all physicians and nursing staff who are known to be forcibly retracting their young clients. However, SOS operates exclusively by volunteers and donation, and requests often exceed funding.

In the past we have received a number of responses from physicians and nursing staff, thanking us for this material, for its respectful delivery, and including notations that a change in their practice has been made. Often, retraction is occurring simply because this is what was taught in medical or nursing school, or because a health care professional picked up the practice from someone they were apprenticing under. It is typically a problem of training, not willful damage. 

Items in the clinician's packs include:

1) A cover letter encouraging the physician to review current protocol for the sake of his/her patients, and a note about the retraction epidemic.

2) The current American Academy of Pediatrics, Royal Children's Hospital (Australia), Canadian Paediatric Society, and Paediatric Society of New Zealand's statements on intact care.

3) Citations to practicing physicians' work - those who have composed further articles on the subject matter.

4) An oversized intact care card with bullet points for review.

5) An oversized medical organizations statement card with circumcision positions from around the world.

6) An invitation to join fellow clinicians at Medical Professionals for Genital Autonomy.

7) Contact information for local leaders, as well as Saving Our Sons, should there be questions, critique, or desire for further correspondence.

All of these items are those that parents can obtain online or compose as well. If you are writing your own letter and would like to include the oversized cards listed above, they are available at the SOS materials page: SavingSons.org/p/info-cards.html
