Personally, I think of ending MGM as a tapestry of many different methods that all converge toward one good. Lawsuits, legislation change, education, picketing, demonstrations, conferences, internet sites, sharing our personal experiences where and when we can, manufacturing restoring devices, etc etc are all playing into a change in consciousness. What we have noticed here in Canada is a far greater participation on the part of anonymous hospital employees to be whistle blowers when there are hospital “mix ups” of boys.
It took a case of circumcising the wrong boy in Winnipeg, Manitoba to end MGM being paid for under the Medical Plan in the last holdout province in Canada. That was due to an anonymous call to a radio station by a staff member at the hosp. Now, there is absolutely no public funding for MGM anywhere in Canada. That says a lot in a country with a socialized medical system that has universal coverage. Most hosps in Canada will not allow MGM on the premises because of fear of lawsuits and all circumcisions are done in private clinics.
We still have an unbelievably high rate of 10% throughout the country. That 10% will be eliminated, too, through all the efforts large and small that we all do close to home and around the world.
