In a response to the critique by the international physicians, published in the same issue of Pediatrics, the authors of the AAP Task Force report – which included members already on record as favoring the surgery – repeated their contention that infant circumcision is justifiable from a scientific standpoint and labeled the physicians' response as biased against circumcision.
