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. http://www.drmomma.org/2011/01/neonatal-circumcision-video-for.html
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
Life is strange and wonderful. Me , DP , DS (3/09) , 3 and 4
Oh my god. 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.
