Circumcision of infants without any medical reasons, the AAP even says it is a cosmetic procedure, thus UNNECESSARY Genital Cutting (male genital Mutilation) is EVERYONE'S BUSINESS! If you say nothing - you are equally guilty of cutting that baby's penis as the doctor himself. Of course, if you do say something - do your best to save new babies around you - and the parents still cut up their baby boy anyway, at least you know you tried. Until male genital mutilation is illegal like its female counterpart, WE MUST ALL work together to help save as many babies as we can!
Don't give up! Start wearing some PRO INTACT shirts and making bumper stickers on your car (if you so choose). If people see that you are PROUD of your stance, they will begin to listen. If you hide behind your uncertainity... then how certain are you that it is wrong? (That would the Pro-Cutters view anyways)
I know if I say nothing.. then nothing will change. If I say something to everyone and anyone ... Now, Imagine if you walked around your pregnant friend - EACH AND EVERY TIME, with a Pro-Intact shirt on. Remember, all these mothers are "stockhome syndromed" into believing that male genital mutilation is the thing to do. They are brain washed. And, all their families and support groups are. It takes a seed to make a tree grow. Your shirt, your bumper stickered car, your custom iron on transfer pro-intact sling, your cloth grocery bags, your child's shirt... could be the seed. that first year - that seed will grow into a sapling. Perhaps only one apple will fall and only one baby be saved. Now, there are two - you and that baby. Two trees later... then 4 ... then 8.
My bumper stickered car got all of my husband's friends (macho men) thnking and all of them researched circumcision. Several proposed arguments for why it should be done to my husband, jokingly (?), but... I feel the seeds were planted. Perhaps, these macho men will save other babies.
Make some shirts for yourself with some iron on transfers and some $3 Thsrits from walmart (you can download graphics @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/62185301@N04
