I signed a few hours ago. When I checked my email just now, I got a message saying I am signature 968. However, that is not my name. I don't think it would let me sign again so hopefully it will show up eventually.

Am I the only one who can read the comments on this petition? Do you guys see the comments as well? Just curious. They are pretty powerful!

Thanks.

Am I the only one outraged by the number of signatures? It's currently at 1,189, which is fine, but have you compared it with other petitions? It's shameful.
2,300 people want a ban on plastic bags in LA. 13,000 people think FedEx is unfair to it's workers (are they forced to work there, can't they just quit?). 21,000 people want the govt. to keep toxic toys off the shelf. Heck, even more than half the people who signed the circ petition want to rescind a law that prohibits backyard burning/fires in some place called Kamploos (691 sigs). I'm not saying all of these things aren't important issues, or at least important to those they effect, but COME ON! This petition has been up for almost 2 full years and only 1,189 people think protecting a newborn from cutting is important enough to lend their signature and support.
I have no words to express my disgust.

Can this petition link not be posted in the "activism" forum of this site or is that not allowed?

I could read the comments too. I can't seem to get to anything but the last page, but I think that's because I don't have javascript turned on for it.

Thanks! I also signed and forwarded it as well to my minions who do my bidding.

I'll post it on craigslist...hopefully some people will see it before it gets pulled.

I don't think it lets you sign twice- I read back over it, and found my signature from ages ago (must have been the first time this was posted).

Totally didnt' remember signing it, so signed it again, but my second signature hasn't shown up.

Funnily enough, I left almost identical comments both times!

I, also, am very sad at the pitifully small number of signatories, though.

I signed, but after thinking that I had seen this before, went back and sure enough - #631. The second signature did not show up.

I agree with "Night Nurse" that I find it really pathetic that so few of us appear to be enraged, or even concerned about this violation of basic human rights.

Yeah, in the USA no one does anything unless some celebrity tells them to do it...

I just signed-- signature #1200!

(forgive me for saying, but that IS pretty sad considering i was on a campaign to save a television show that got about 5k signatures in less than a week)

I just checked the site out again..the siggy rate is abysmal. I can't believe that more people don't believe that the torture of babies isn't a huge nightmare in the USA...

What a bummer....I guess the end of the year is the cut off date (no pun intended) for the signatures?

What in the world? Why would they do that? They have NO right!!!

I wrote them a letter.

ugh, that makes me angry.:

Y'k, this kind of censorship is what slave owners did at an attempt to keep it legal.

OP, could you briefly explain in a sentence how the ACLU can help in that matter?

I posted that in a different Forum, most european expats disgusted by RIC anyway. But the yeahsayers start questioning what the ACLU might have to do with it... A brief but "packed" explanation might be helpful.

I understand, believe me... I just wanted some "technical" explanation, what it takes for the ACLU to accept a petition, how the ACLU can help lobby for changes in laws etc.-somebody there just wanted to know how the ACLU would be capable of helping the cause, KNWIM?

I do think some signed there, it's quite a debate in binational marriages with Americans. "European-WTF?? They do what to little boys???
American-it's a little that benefits him his whole life" speaking of whole...
