    “Circumcision doesn’t hurt a bit. Your child won’t even know half the surface area of his penis has been removed.”

    Yeah, right.

    That is horrible! I refused to put either one of my boys through that and if this one is a boy, as well, he will also be uncircumcised. Great blog!

    Those poor children 😦 Pictures and articles like that make the double standard between female and male genital mutilation seem all the more ludicrous.

    I am part of a blog that is opposed to child circumcision.
    I have also wirtten a paper on this.
    These children have suffered, and the long term effects are unknown.
    They will have problems with this.
    I will never put any child of mine through this painful act.
    Never never.
    His body, HIS choice.

    Has anyone visited this link about circumcision in Turkey?

    I’ve seen signs that the end of the world is coming as predictions in the bible come true. When I see things like these pictures here, I’m glad the world will end.

    The U.S. is so eager to educate poor countries, why don’t we teach them things like safe sex instead of hurting them. If I was that country, I’d consider this an act of war if some military came in and did this to my people. And if it’s their own military, it’s a good thing the world is going to end.
