Take a stand recommending against routine infant circumcision

    1. Petition by

      Intact TN

Parents need to know that the cultural perpetuation of circumcision is harmful to the attachment parenting philosophy. You discuss needing to educate parents against societally acceptable norms that will contradict scientifically supported and obvious instinctual responses. It is obvious that for the attached family respecting the individual's right to all their healthy body parts is part of that.

Take a stand recommending against routine infant circumcision

      There is no reason to put tiny and fragile newborns through this unnecessary cosmetical surgery.

      All health benefits are long debunked, there are none. Only anguish and a lot of pain. Stop it. Now.

      Because I have a son and it breaks my heart that innocent baby boys have to endure such horrible pain, and loss of healthy body tissue for no proven medical benefit.

      There is nothing "attachement" about severing healthy tissue from non-consenting people.

      Routine cutting a child's genitals without their consent is a clear human rights violation and robs them of autonomy over the whole body they are born with. Girls and boys should have the same protection.
