Has anyone seen this brilliant video yet? I want to give this guy a big hug for what he is doing.

That was great!  You can't search for that video, so be sure to keep the link.

I'm not having a boy, but I hadn't made a decision on whether I should or not as it seemed the only reason to do it was for remote medical reasons. This is a great argument against it. Thanks for sharing the link to the video T'man's Mama!

Congratulations on your baby girl!  Even though you are having a girl, this is a human rights issue and those that care about babies care about all babies!  Don't be surprised that once you have your baby in arms, at your breast and locked in your gaze that this issue becomes something you think about more than you ever thought you would.  I thank you for becoming educated about this issue - truly an elephant in the hospital!

I have no idea. But this presentation should seriously be included in any birth education class for expectant parents!

i was thinking it should be a presentation every college student has to see.  the circ rate would be much lower in a very short period of time!

besides being so well researched and presented, the lecturer wins big points for being so calm and collected. often, it seems, we get emotional about this issue. which probably can't be helped. but a lot of people who still need persuading probably respond better to this type of "calm facts" presentation.

 

well done!

That is awesome. He is so thorough, yet concise, and his manner is so calm and engaging. He should get a Nobel award.
