Here are a few more pages from this site:
"Generally the baby isn't fed for an hour before circumcision. This is to prevent spitting up, since the baby will be lying on his back for the procedure."
Or is it throwing up from overwhelming pain?
"There are moments of the circumcision that appear to be painful"
Their powers of observation under whelm me.
"Post-operative pain can be managed with infant acetaminophen (Tylenol), cuddling and allowing the baby to suck. Some babies seem sleepy or "out of it" for a day after the procedure."
Is cuddling and sucking some new anesthetic or pain management technique I haven't heard about? "Sleepy or out of it?" Is that correct speak terminology for shock?
"Circumcision is a very safe procedure, and serious complications are rare. Very rarely a major complication can occur due to surgical mishap."
Major like death, maybe? Well, we certainly don't want to alarm anyone, do we?
"In the US, newborn circumcision is widely practiced, although the rates vary by region, from about 60 to as high as 90 percent. In contrast, in the UK only a quarter of newborns get circumcised, and in Canada, about half"
Where do they get their information??????? In the US, it's 38%-68%, in the UK, it's less than 1% and Canada, it's 17%. Exaggeration is common in circumcision information and discussions. It's obvious they are trying to subtly promote circumcision.
"Many parents worry that if they don't have their baby circumcised at birth he may need it later, when it would be more emotionally traumatic."
Yet, they don't mention that less than 1 in 10,000 will ever "need" it later.
"In 1999, an expert panel of the American Academy of Pediatrics concluded that circumcision does have some demonstrated medical benefits."
They concluded no such thing! They concluded the same thing they have been saying for 30 years. That is that there is no known medical benefits. There are no "demonstrated" medical benefits according to the AAP.
"However, the expert panel did not feel that these benefits were large enough to justify recommending circumcision for all baby boys."
Or any baby boys!
"Topical anesthetic (EMLA.) cream can be put on about an hour before the procedure to numb the skin. This is the least invasive method of anesthesia, but isn't quite as effective as the other two methods."
Actually, it is totally worthless. It does nothing for surgical pain. That is not what it was designed for.
It is obvious that these people are the bottom feeders of the medical industry.
