"So my big boy slept through (it)" Vanesha from Georgia












Reality check: Not possible without total anesthesia, which is not available. Even the dorsal penile nerve block leaves the underside of the penis receptive to pain. Babies go into shock, which though it looks like a quiet state, is actually the body’s reaction to profound pain and distress.  Nurses often tell the parents ”He slept right through it” so as  not to upset them. Who would want to hear that his or her baby was screaming in agony and then went into shock?

Trespass - an encroachment or intrusion.

Circumcision, trespassing upon the most intimate      aspect of somebody else's life. -BK

2011 AAP policy statement vs 2014 policy statement









The AAP has since revised their 2011 stance (above) due to the fact that insurance companies stopped covering the procedure.  AAP physicians started losing a lot of money. The new statement is designed to make sure the insurance companies keep covering it. 

AAP current policy statement says: "the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks and that the procedure’s benefits justify access to this procedure for families who choose it." The AAP stops short of making a full recommendation of the the procedure for all boys.

Another exerpt from AAP website: 


8/27/2012

"After a comprehensive review of the scientific evidence, the American Academy of Pediatrics found the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks, but the benefits are not great enough to recommend universal newborn circumcision. The AAP policy statement published Monday, August 27, says the final decision should still be left to parents to make in the context of their religious, ethical and cultural beliefs."

A stitch tunnel or a suture tunnel is a common complication of circumcision in which "tunnels" of skin remain from the sutures.




"Suture tunnels and skin bridges are seen frequently in our practice," -Harold M. Reed, M.D.

The assault we ignore




















It is estimated that between 100-600 baby boys (in the USA) die each year due to hemorrhaging from unnecessary circumcision.

Diane










Assisting a madman who probes and cuts a helpless child's genitals is not "awesome". Helping this monster while he inserts a ring around the head of the child's penis and ties a ligature around it, in order to cut off the circulation so that the remaining skin rots off, is also no"awesome". Dear Diane, you have a very twisted idea of what a good time is. Seek professional help asap.

"Imagine the lack of empathy required to find baby screams, and baby blood, "awesome"!  -SM

WARNING TO PARENTS: FORESKIN RETRACTION OF INTACT BOYS — AN EPIDEMIC

Forced retraction is the naive or deliberate attempt to

prematurely retract a child before the child's penis is ready for it.


Retraction happens at different times for different boys.


Forcing retraction leads to the infections, adhessions, and 


scarring for which a doctor will then recommend circumcision


as the solution. 



"They cause it, they fix it, ingenious, huh?"  -BK
