Now I definetly know that I will not have any child I have in the future circumcised. Here's why:
I had to go to the urologist for a pre-op appointment 3 months ago, before they injected Botox in my bladder to help with severe incontinence. They had a baby boy in the waiting room that looked about 6-8 weeks old. Cute as a button. Well, that baby boy and his mom were called back before me. I didn't think of it, and kept reading my insurance handbook for a homework assignment I had due that evening. All of a sudden, I heard this ear piercing scream out of that baby who was in one of the exam rooms. It sounded like they were torturing the baby! I commented to an older lady in the waiting room that it sounds like that baby isn't too happy. She smiled and replied, "Oh, he was born premature and is just getting a circumcision to catch up with everyone else." Apparently, that old lady was his gramdma.
That baby didn't stop screaming the whole time him and his mom were at the urologist. I felt so sorry for that baby. It was apparent that they didn't use any anestetic at all before they did the procedure. The baby and mom finally came out of the exam room, and that baby was beet red in his face, from screaming so much, and he was still fussing when they left.
I vowed that day to never have any future child to go through that kind of torture and abuse. I don't care if a doctor says that its cleaner and easier on the child as he grows up, its not worth putting an innocent baby in that kind of pain for the parents conveience.
