I found this on the facebook site "Saving our Sons"   I don't know if it's ok to post this here, but if not here I don't know where.  WARNING:  This is a GRAPHIC video of a circumcision intended for doctor training!!!!!  This made me cry in utter horror!!  DO NOT WATCH THIS if you are extremely sensitive to this sort of thing.  I thought it might help some of us prevent this from ever happening to another sweet little baby. 


It makes me sick, because I was not educated enough to demand the doctor not forcibly retract my son.  He is intact, but still he went through so much pain bawling.gif

Life is strange and wonderful.  Me read.gif, DP lady.gif, DS (3/09) blahblah.gif , 3 dog2.gif  and 4 cat.gif

Oh my god. brokenheart.gif  That baby is in such agony... I need to try to forget what I saw. I hate this horrible surgery, there's no justification for torturing a baby like that just to prevent a couple UTIs. It's as if no thought goes into it, just strap them down and slice away...

I had to observe a circumcision while in nursing school, and it was then that I decided I could never put my future son(s) through something that horrific. This was one of the videos I wanted my DH to watch before our son was born, but he ended up leaving the decision up to me.

There's a reason almost no parents are allowed to view this "procedure" being done on their child. brokenheart.gif
