The testimonials on this blog are from real people who (mostly) come from the USA. This blog serves to document common circumcision complications and the prevailing ignorance surrounding this archaic practice.

I would imagine that blood loss is quite common in surgically altered babies if they aren't "greased" up enough. We all know that it doesn't take a whole lot of blood loss for a tiny baby to go into shock and die. I wonder how they classify these deaths? CDC states that 600 newborns hemorrhage to death every year. Only takes 2 oz. of blood loss in a newborn.
