Child Circumcision - page six

A Collection of Information Resources for Expectant Parents

What happens when a child circumcision goes wrong?

Because there is no medical basis for this surgery, a doctor who has sold the parents on a child circumcision has only one defense--that is to claim the parents made him do it. Taken from actual court records, here is an example of what your doctor will say in court:

Circumcision is not a medically recommended procedure. Even though we don't recommend circumcision for medical reasons, many parents request it for personal or religious reasons. The reason we don't recommend circumcision is because we feel the risks of circumcision outweigh the benefits. The risks of circumcising a child include bleeding, infection and damage to the penis in varying degrees and in some rare instances, sepsis, which is a generalized infection which can spread rapidly over the entire body.
--Sworn statement of doctor who claims he first gave this warning to the parents, excerpted from the court record. The boy acquired an infection following his circumcision, which lead to severe brain damage. The parents say the doctor is lying, and that they were not warned of any risks.

Child circumcision is a horribly painful procedure that was instituted by extremists to diminish sexual pleasure.

"When you were a little boy, your parents had you operated on so that you wouldn't feel sex so much."

If someone said that to you now, you could respond, "No, my parents didn't mean to do that to me, they just didn't realize that's why it was done." Will your child be able to give the same response?

Times have changed, and as people discover the truth about child circumcision, the rate is rapidly declining. The sexual mutilation of children is finally becoming obsolete in the US. If you are one of those who still cling to the tradition, your child may some day find it difficult to believe that you didn't know the causes and consequences of sexual mutilation.
