Cynthia Maloney, Intactivist



Cynthia Maloney Special to Global News Centre

Today is Independence Day. This is a day to celebrate America’s history of independence and freedom. As you celebrate today I want you to consider how free you truly are. Were you allowed the freedom to a whole unaltered body? Were you allowed the freedom to decide for yourself what body parts you were able to keep? In the Declaration of Independence, the entire reason behind the celebration of the day, we are told:  “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”The forced genital cutting of infants and children is a direct violation of these truths. The forced genital cutting of infants and children takes these basic rights away.  For nearly two months now I have been featuring an intactivist from each of the 50 States every day in order for you to see that we are not a fringe group. We are Americans demanding for the rights that we were promised in the Declaration of Independence. We are Americans demanding that our son’s Constitutional rights not be violated. We come from all corners of the country, all walks of life and we are angry and disgusted at this blatant violation of human rights. Each of the people in this video has taken a stand to end the forced genital cutting of infants and children. Every person in this video is doing something to protect the basic human rights of children. The intactivists featured in this video:

A special thanks to James Loewen for openly sharing his photographs and videos. I’d also like to thank Danelle Frisbee for allowing me to use some of her beautiful photography for this project as well. And a special thanks to Brother K and Carrie Simon for helping me to find the right intactivists for this project!

I would also like thank Ace Knight for use of his amazing intactivist anthem! This video would not have been the same without it! I could not have dreamed of a better sound track!

And to Jonathon Conte, wherever you are, your work was not in vain. You made a huge difference in the lives of each and every one of us. We will continue this fight. We will continue to educate and we will change the culture.

“If we don’t talk about it it’s never going to end. And it’s got to end. It has to end. It absolutely has to end” ~ Jonathon Conte ~
