One of the many "complications" of #circumcision is death. Hundreds of boys die annually. Completely unnecessary surgery on a newborn is risky. No major national medical body in the world recommends routine infant circumcision. #Intact is the normal globally (70% of men are intact). Bring your whole baby home; he is perfect as he is. #i2 #HisBodyHisChoice

I think it's important to actually watch the procedure, and to watch it with the volume turned up, to have an idea what is actually being discussed when we talk about circumcision. This is not "just a snip". Keep in mind that the majority of circumcisions on newborns are done with no anesthetic. Anesthesia carries risks of its own, so the answer should not be 'give them all anesthesia', the answer should be, 'perhaps we shouldn't be doing painful, risky, traumatic, damaging unnecessary surgeries on newborns in the first place'. #circumcision #i2
