Message from Franny Destined for Parents Considering Circumcision

Not one national medical organisation in the world recommends routine infant circumcision. NOT ONE. There is no REASON to cut healthy, living tissue off a newborn.The foreskin has a function, which is why GOD or NATURE (whichever you believe) put it there.

God does not make mistakes. And evolution does not make mistakes either (for every single male to be BORN with a foreskin, there is a reason. He was “BORN THIS WAY”!) Indeed, if you are Christian, you need not, rather MUST NOT circumcise.

Circumcision is extremely painful, unnecessary, cosmetic surgery, which can have dire consequences. In extreme cases, the baby can DIE. In others, suffer complications like this infant:

“Nothing in life is 100% safe, but circumcision is 100% avoidable.”

His body, his choice. Leave his private parts alone. 90% of the world’s males are intact. Today, only some 30-35% of baby boys in the USA are circumcised. If you cut off the most sensitive, pleasurable part of his penis, making him lose the equivalent of a 3 x 5 inch index card of skin containing some 40,000 to 100,000 nerve endings, do you REALLY think that he will thank you for it? If someone had cut off YOUR clitoral hood, leaving your clitoris exposed, rubbed, and keratinised since birth, would you be able to enjoy sex as much as you do today?

There really is NOT MUCH DIFFERENCE AT ALL between “male circ” a.k.a. male genital mutilation (MGM), and female genital mutilation (FGM). To find out the REAL difference between male and female circumcision:

Which do you cut?

As you can see from this link, many types of female circumcision are actually much less invasive than the male kind: http://aandes.blogspot.com/2010/04/circumcision.html

The chances that he will “need” to be circumcised later in life are tiny, as long as you follow two golden rules: “Intact, don’t retract” and “only clean what is seen”.

The foreskin is fused to the tip of the penis (glans) at birth and for years thereafter, providing effective protection from all the poo and other messes in a diaper, for example, preventing any infection and preventing the glans from being exposed and keratinised, which may lead to sexual dysfunction by the 30′s or 40′s (ever wonder why Viagra was “invented” in the U.S, where until about 5 years ago, some places had as much as 90% of boys sexually assaulted at birth?)

If you are one of the parents who DID circumcise your son(s), please do not feel bad about it. You did what you thought best at the time, and nobody can or should judge you for it. Know that there are millions of parents who may have regrets. One well-known mom, Marilyn Milos Fayre, turned into an ardent anti-circ CRUSADER (No-CIRC) after her three sons had been circumcised and she was doing a hospital rotation to become an RN. After witnessing a routine infant circumcision (RIC) like that which had been carried out on her own three boys during a hospital rotation the doc turned around nonchalantly to her and said, “There is NO MEDICAL REASON TO DO THIS!” You can read about Marilyn’s story here: http://www.drmomma.org/2009/12/circumcision-what-i-wish-id-known.html

You should know that Marilyn is far from being alone. Indeed, just ‘google’ “parents or mothers” and “regret circumcision”. You will be astounded by the results.

If you cut your first son, you DO have an alternative and do not need to carry out the same barbaric procedure on your second son. There are support groups for savvy parents just like you, who have learned from their mistakes. One such group on Facebook is “Keeping Future Sons Intact”: https://www.facebook.com/FutureSons.

There really should be no “choice” other than the baby’s, when it comes to the most sensitive part of his perfect little penis. Repeat after me: “His body, his choice. It’s not a “CHOICE” for you to make!

When my infant was in NICU, I had the great displeasure to witness several circumcisions, and those screams haunt me until today. Often, for newborn circumcision, there is either no anesthesia at all, or just a little bit of local anesthesia, which has been proven NOT TO WORK. An older child or adult can benefit from full general anaesthesia (unsafe for newbrons) as well as a vast array of pain meds, including narcotics (again, dangerous for newborns, as they may suppress respiration.) Quite frankly, I think the practice is barbaric.

Mercifully, circumcision is slowly but surely becoming unfashionable across North America. In Quebec, the rate is only about 12.3%.

Have you not heard of all the babies who die from this unnecessary surgery? Here is but one example….real screen shots from the mom who blogged about how she “almost” killed her NICU baby….only to have him die the day after he was circ’d. :( Here is the little guy’s story: http://guggiedaly.blogspot.com/2011/01/tragic-story-of-joshuas-death-according.html

Could your boy be next? Do you not appreciate this special gift that GOD gave you…a perfect little boy in every way…and that HE allowed him to survive? Only to be cut up? NO!

He died at some six weeks of age…not from his primary condition that was the reason why he was in NICU, but because his parents just could not come to terms with the fact that daddy was circ’d, big brother was circ’d, and hey, he had to be to fit in!

Worse, they were Christians who did not even know that as per the Bible, only the Jews (Old Testament) are to get circ’d. Christians follow the New Testament, which expressly FORBIDS CIRC.

Hey YOU, fathers who have been cut! Please read this BEFORE you perpetrate the cycle of unnecessary violence: http://www.udonet.com/circumcision/vincent/vulnerability_of_men.html

MOTHERS: it is YOUR JOB TO PROTECT YOUR VULNERABLE INFANT. Why would you want him to hurt for no good reason? (Unless the “good” doctors who stand to profit from making money from the procedure $chool you otherwise, of course)…That is why I find it hard to blame the parents. I can only encourage them to try to unravel the real truth, before it is too late!

Oh, and for anybody reading this, I have FOUR WHOLE BOYS ALMOST 2, 4, 6, and 8 YEARS OF AGE. Not one of them has EVER had a UTI. Their penises do not smell, look funny, or anything. Remember, the majority (65%) of today’s informed American parents are keeping their baby boys WHOLE. If you actually DO cut your son, when he will be “in the locker room”, he will be the minority. Will the majority of boys with all their body parts laugh at his cosmetically altered penis? Will it be seen as being defective and smaller or shorter than those of his intact counterparts? Do you really want him to be subjected to such humiliation?

If you have not already, please take a moment to sign this petition to the La Leche League, asking them to put back information on how circumcision can harm the breastfeeding relationship into their book, the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, and to allow LLL leaders to discuss this topic with parents.

http://www.petitiononline.com/170211FM/petition.htmlAnd LIKE this page:https://www.facebook.com/HeyLLLCircumcisionAffectsBreastfeedingBaby boys everywhere thank you!

PS: unconvinced? read some of the testimony of moms who had problems breastfeeding after having their sons circumcised in the petition.

  1. Excellent job, Franny. You answer a large assortment of the big myths and have ample areas to go for more. Planting seeds that spark curiosity and ensue questioning often leads to babies saved! Thanks to 4ERIC for sharing this example as well. Press onward everyone!

    • If you look at the big picture, do the research, and still believe traumatically cutting (ignoring his health and welfare) a viable covering working / moving part from a new born babies penis is the right thing to do to keep him clean and stop the spread of aids (is that his fault?), keep him from getting a rare disease or infection,is the right thing to do,
      then you are either:
      1. retarded
      2. profiting from the abuse
      3. a child abusing monster
      You can’t rightfully justify this violation of an Americans basic human rights.
      It doesn’t matter how many people spread aids.
      A traumatized newborn is not the answer to the aids epidemic. The answers may be hidden to some and illusive to others , but the answers are not destroying (maiming mutilating cutting) newborn male infants. How could a babies health and welfare be second to public disease spreading in anyones mind or conscience?
      Routinely cutting infants for public health or any other reason is criminal and and should have been immediately stopped before this punishment for masterbation began and was inflicted on one baby. No good person will do it to a baby for any reason but to save the babys life, and cutting off part of a healthy babys penis will not save his life. It won’t save anything.
      All moms should educate and then make this life affecting decision. Your little bundle of joy will love and cherish you for protecting him from harm in his most vulnerable time. Just research it and decide if you would want it done to you. That is a simple thing to do, but the rewards of a healthy untraumatized infant are certainly worth it. I can’t imagine a babys first touches surgically traumatizing him because people spread aids. Would this have happened had the US consitution said
      “Do not cut off the foreskin from American babies”? or , “Stop aids by cutting off part of a healthy newborns genitalia. ” How is this not obvious?
      Foreskin protects delicate skin that’s supposed to be covered most of the time by skin, (lips cover gums, eyelids cover eyes, foreskin covers glans) it fascilitates procreation since it makes for correct movement during intercourse making it comfortable for both the male and female by reducing unnatural friction, and lets not forget the sensitive nerve endings that make it enjoyable for the male.
      To simplify it, just ask if lifetime trauma to the child is worth it to you as a parent, or watch the infant scream and turn blue till his life force leaves him during his first days of life, when cuddling and bonding to mommy are in order, or in rarer cases, just risk him dying from the shock then you don’t have to think about it anymore, because after all, it is just a little snip, isn’t that what they call it sometimes?
