Oh, on this I totally agree!
My son is now 29. He is my only child because complications at delivery, a massive blood loss requiring a 10 unit whole blood transfusion and then
surgery. I was in intensive care for 2-3 days, and pretty well drugged up to the max. People would ask me things and I would do it, but don't
remember much. When I was finally moved to a regular maternity room, my doctor came in and said my son would be brought to me in a little while,
and that he was screaming and angry. When I asked why, I was told he had just be circumcised. I had not wanted it done, but had apparently been
given the infomation and signature of approval the previous day.....while I was still in intensive care and drugged. It was too late to reverse, no
"harm" had been done over and above removing sensitive tissue from my son without even numbing........and I was still hopped up enough to just drop
I don't know if it's because I am not litigious, or if it was just before the seeming massive amount of medical malpractice lawsuits, but nothing
It's a cruel unnecessary practice that should NOT be done. And the people who disagree should have it done the same way as the children they are
okay with mutilating, strapped to a table, without numbing (too early to spell the medical term correctly), and scraping it off with a scalpel.
