Mamanurse, if you want to be inspired just read this over and over:

From the Third International Symposium on Circumcision
University of Maryland, May 22-25, 1994:

Look at these hands
.

These hands have taken a newborn baby from his mother's safe warm breast
and
his father's sheltering arms, and these hands have tied this baby to a
cold
hard platter and served him up to the circumciser.

These hands have readied the scalpel, even as they caressed the brow of
the
terrified baby as he struggled for freedom and searched my eyes for
compassion he did not find.

A tortured being has sucked frantically on this finger in a hopeless
effort
to end the agony as his flesh -- his birthright -- is ripped from him
and
thrown in the garbage.

These hands have removed the diaper painfully adhered to the
feces-covered
wound between his chubby legs.

These hands have shielded my ears from his screams.

Nurses of America, I did not become a nurse to hurt babies, and neither
did
you.

In 1992, with over 20 other nurses at St. Vincent Hospital in Santa Fe,
New
Mexico, I gave notice to my employers and declared I would no longer be
an
accomplice in the atrocity that is infant circumcision.

I have reclaimed my tattered soul and begun the process of becoming
whole
again.

I am a conscientious objector in the war against our infant brothers and

sons, and it feels wonderful.

Nurses of America, wipe the blood from your hands and join me!

Mary Conant, RN

[Mary Conant is one of the 24 heroic Conscientious Objectors to
Circumcision
nurses at St. Vincent's Hospital, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and co-founder
of
Nurses for the Rights of the Child

I met with the dean of my school yesterday and went over the situation. She agreed that I handled it well and was appropriately exercising my right to not participate in procedures I find "unethical." Anyway, my instructors write-up was taken out of my file and I fell satisfied with the way the situation was resolved. Thank you for all your support!

Ok, so I gotta ask...Who done it?
