    Join the Worldwide Day of Genital Autonomy: May 7, 2022

    Dear friends of sexual health, bodily integrity, personal choice, and human rights,

    This year, 2022, marks the tenth anniversary of the “Cologne Ruling”. In 2012, for the first time, a court explicitly granted boys the right to genital self-determination by concluding that medically unnecessary foreskin removal (“circumcision”) from a boy is an offense. This decision has since become a worldwide beacon for the self-determination of children regardless of gender, ancestry or religion.

    The “Cologne Ruling” not only attracted worldwide attention and triggered controversial debates, but also gave rise to the proclamation of the first worldwide activity day focused on genital self-determination which includes all children without exception.

    The “Worldwide Day of Genital Autonomy” calls for:

    • Adherence to and implementation of the UN-Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 2 (protection against discrimination); Article 3 (precedence of children’s well-being); and Article 24 Paragraph 3 (abolishment of traditional practices prejudicial to the health of children).

    • Legislatives initiatives worldwide that provide for the protection of all children, regardless of gender, from non-therapeutic genital operations.

    • Protection of children with atypical sex characteristics from genital surgery and intervention without absolute medical indication.

    • An immediate stop to group or mass circumcision of minor males (boys) for alleged HIV prevention in African countries.

    • Public research and education on the consequences of non-therapeutic genital surgery on children in its different forms and social contexts.
