I just found out that some friends of mine had their two day old baby circumcised. :( :( :( This was after I shared EXTENSIVELY with this little boy's mom about circ, reasons not to circ, etc. She was very open to the discussion, asked for opinions on whether they should circ or not, and is an incredibly intelligent person. I really thought I had gotten through to her.
I am hurting for that little baby and upset at his parents. I found out they circ'ed him because his father put it on a FACEBOOK status. I gave them sooo many reasons not to circ, soooo many studies, and even the list of "50 reasons to leave it alone" on this forum. They are not stupid people. They try to make well-research decisions. And yet they needlessly did this to their baby boy. They have no religious reasons to circ either. WHY?
Anyway, I really need to vent and many of my real life friends either believe in circ or don't care and are tired of hearing me talk about it. Thanks for listening. I am so sad that these parents made an informed (?????) decision to cut up their child.
