Would you cut off your daughter’s breasts at birth so she doesn’t get breast cancer? Would you cut off your baby’s ears so they don’t become infected? It is illogical and absurd to think of amputating any working, healthy part of your trusting, helpless infant.
Why are most Americans aghast at female genital mutilations happening on the other side of the world yet they think nothing of mutilating and permanently disfiguring innocent infant boys right here at home?
Circumcision crushes or rips off a healthy part of a human body. No medical or pediatric association recommends it because there is no valid scientific reason to engage in this practice. Your doctor does it for the money. As sick and abominable as that is, it is true. On top of charging for the procedure, the hospital will turn around and sell your baby boy’s foreskin for profit.
I get very fired up about childbirth. I believe in my heart that the atrocities visited upon women and children by the obstetrics community for profit is beyond deplorable. It makes me sick and I will do what I can in this lifetime to change it. Western women are able to read and research during their pregnancy however. They are able to rip out IVs, kick the doctor , check themselves out and run if they have to. They can, on many levels, protect themselves. A newborn boy cannot protect himself. He has to rely on his parents to protect him. This is the reason that I find the wholesale mutilation of boys so mind-bogglingly sick and wrong. It literally makes me sick to my stomach to think of the horror that is seared into the brain of up to 70% of boys in this country. What a ghastly way to be welcomed into the world.
Circumcision is a barbaric, cruel, unethical, morally reprehensible, sickening, irreversible, excruciating, human rights violation. Circumcision is a crime against the most innocent and helpless among us.
