TOTAL BAN on the practice of Oral Suction Circumcision (Metzitza)
Oral Suction Circumcision (Metzitza) is the ancient barbaric practice of, circumcising 8 day old babies with no anaesthetic and the orally sucking blood from the open wound in the penis. Unbelievably it is still legal in the UK!
With all the work and money going into battling FGM, no one seems to raise a whimper in regard to the obvious "sick" factor. The concerns go much deeper
BROOKLYN, NY — The city's health department this week confirmed the first case in 2017 of a baby getting neonatal herpes following a controversial Jewish circumcision process. Metzitzah b'peh was performed on the baby, which is a ritual where a mohel, or trusted religious circumciser, uses his mouth to suck blood away from the circumcision wound on the infant's penis, the department said. The health department calls metzitzah b'peh "direct orogenital suction," or DOS, and said it can transmit herpes to newborn males.Since 2000, there have been 24 confirmed cases of herpes infection following DOS, according to the health department. Two of the 24 babies died, and at least two others suffered brain damage.In 2016, there were two confirmed herpes cases following DOS, and in 2015 there were three, according to the health department. This is the first confirmed case of herpes following DOS in 2017. The baby was put on an intravenous antiviral for 14 days.
