Circumcision is a barbaric tribal practice that amounts to child abuse. Before any individual under go any permanent body modification such as tattooing or sex reassignment surgery they must be considered old enough to understand the consequences. You cannot understand the ramifications of this act to your physical being until after puberty, when your genitals have fully developed.

      Circumcision shouldn't be done to males without their permission.

      I am an young adult, and recently I've been having a severe crisis over the fact that I was mutilated at birth. I will never know what it feels like to have a natural penis because of what my parents and doctor did to me, and this depresses me greatly. Please work to stop this happening to anyone else, any other infant who will have his manhood impaired by infuriatingly impotent justifications. Following this, I think the next step of action is to work on getting any genital mutilating doctor's license REVOKED. I also urge any expecting parents of boys to please not lessen your child like I and millions of others were lessened. If you do, that is a shame that you will carry to death, as you should.

      As the victim of a horribly botched and totally unnecessary neonatal circumcision I can sign this petition with confidence.
