4 types of female circumcision (FGM)









There are mainly four types of FGM, these are:-
 Type I, also called clitoridectomy: Partial or total removal of the clitoris and/or the prepuce (aka female foreskin).
 Type II, also called excision: Partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora, with or without excision of the labia majora. The amount of tissue that is removed varies widely from community to community.
 Type III, also called infibulation: Narrowing of the vaginal orifice with a covering seal. The seal is formed by cutting and re-positioning the labia minora and/or the labia majora. This can take place with or without removal of the clitoris.
 Type IV: All other harmful procedures to the female genitalia for non-medical purposes, for example: pricking, piercing, incising, scraping or cauterization.

DANISH RESEARCHERS SHOCKING STUDY: CIRCUMCISION SCARS THE PEE HOLE "URINARY STRICTURE DISEASE (USD) Meatal stenosis is markedly more common in circumcised than genitally intact males, affecting 5–20 per cent of circumcised boys. "By using comprehensive epidemiological data from the Urologic Diseases in America Project, researchers estimated that male USD in the United States is the cause of more than 5000 inpatient visits and approximately 1.5 million office visits per year at an annual cost of approximately US$ 200 million.57 To the best of our knowledge, our study is the first to report on the potential impact of circumcision on the burden of USD beyond the first few days or months of life. "In conclusion, our two-part epidemiological investigation corroborates longstanding clinical knowledge that non-therapeutic circumcision puts boys at markedly elevated relative risk of USD. These findings, combined with clinical evidence that somewhere between 5% and 20% of circumcised boys will eventually develop meatal stenosis, call for a thorough assessment of the burden of urethral troubles and other adverse outcomes after non-therapeutic circumcision of boys." ~Morten Frisch & Jacob Simonsen Published by Elsevier on behalf of Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. These findings are consistent with the report that Johns Hopkins Medicine removed from its website last spring after I posted it. " *** Johns Hopkins Medicine REMOVES INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE FROM ITS WEBSITE *** Fortunately the Internet remembers. "Pediatric urologist Ming-Hsien Wang had seen one too many parents with complaints about their child’s “office procedure” to correct meatal stenosis, a common complication of circumcision characterized by a difficult-to-aim urinary stream and painful, prolonged urination due to the development of scar tissue at the urethral meatus and frequent urinary accidents." https://www.facebook.com/notes/brother-k/med-school-removes-incriminating-evidence-of-common-circ-complication/673697429454081

NOT "just a snip"


"I made an educated decision to circumcise my son" rebuttal






















"No respected medical board in the world, not even the AAP, recommends circumcision for infants. All of them, including the AAP in their latest statement, state that there isn't sufficient evidence to warrant this endorsement, much to the chagrin of circumcision advocates.

It is simply not possible, then, that parents who defend their decision to have their male children circumcised "did their research."

Parents who claim having "done their research" and choose in favor of circumcision take an unfounded position against the best medical authorities of the West. 

"We've done our research" is, then, a poor attempt at sounding intelligent, that human rights activists in the know will see through rather quickly.

Let it be clear...
No respected medical organization endorses male infant circumcision, not even the AAP. The most respected medical organizations in the West have weighed the current body of evidence, and have found it to be insufficient to recommend the circumcision of infants.

It is simply not possible, then, that parents who choose in favor of circumcision "did their research."

It is fallacious to expect lay parents to examine the same body of evidence, and come up with a more reasonable conclusion than that of entire organizations of medical professionals." -J4GI
