Thankfully both my exboyfriend and dp were both against infant circ. They both had taken Human Rights and such classes in college and were informed about issues such as circ.
However, if I were not with such a man, I would first try to use reason- say "let's get informed together and watch a video of it being done so that we know what it really is" Anyone who can watch a video of a helpless child being victimized that way and NOT immediately change his mind is not a person I would be willing to be with. Anyone with even an ounce of compassion will get physically ill seeing what circ really is- people think "oh it's quick and easy and pretty painless"- they are just ignorant. Seeing it done is worth a thousand words or explanations, it speaks for itself- its a crime against reason and compassion.
It's good to have these discussions when things are just hypothetical because you can keep emotions from running as high and really help the uninformed person to see circ for what it is.
Never would I give in, wouldn't even consider it. To do so would be betraying my child- I would feel as if I had sold my soul.
