My mistake I posted in the wrong group
Have a good day!
neither was my grandsons. nothing even close to that. all he did is respond to the cold of liquids used to clean and numb the area. He barely whimpered. circs are no longer barbaric as the one described.
Quoting Mommy_of_Riley:Too bad this is an OLD procedure.
My son's circumcision was NOTHING like what is described.
Even if the baby feels NO pain, the simple fact is that parents are given the right to mutilate another person's genitals. Mutilation of a human being's body is always wrong unless it is necessary in that moment. Seeing as any boy is capable of one day saying, "I want my foreskin removed," there is no reason for parents to make that decision at birth, whether it's so the boy looks like his father, or for the potential to avoid certain diseases.
Any boy, even my own son, can step forward at a later date and say they want the procedure done, or a doctor can say the procedure needs to be done to prevent later problems. Unnecessary procedures should never be done unless the patient wants or NEEDS them.
Our son was circumcised two days after birth over 19 years ago and did not experience any of this.
Nice attempt at swaying, however............
I was standing right there when my son was circumcised. Wasn't even remotely like this.
