DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Circumcision Claims Another Life

A child of four has died after being circumcised, and his parents are left searching for answers.

Below is the online news article translated from Spanish:

Child dies after being circumcised

A child died on Tuesday morning after being circumcised at the Maternal Infant Center. The 4-year-old Yeidy Ramírez Beato was son of Johanna Beato and Anyelo Ramírez.

The directors at the clinic located an Rosario Street still haven't found reasonable explanation as to what caused the death of the minor.

The child's body was taken to INACIF of Santiago to carry out an autopsy to determine the cause of the child's death. (As if this weren't immediately obvious?)

According to the police report and certificate issued by medical examiner Cinencio Uribe, the minor died after being operated by Dr. Nelson Aybar, and anesthesiologist Dr. Abrahán García Gómez.

The child's family told, that supposedly it's about medical malpractice, and they seek an explanation as to why their son died.

On the video, the mother was crying uncontrollably as she asked herself "Why my son?"

The child died after having been circumcised.

Hundreds of curious members of the press were inquiring over the sad tragedy, as one can see in the video.

The question is, why was this child operated on?

What illness was the child suffering that he needed to be circumcised?

Was the child suffering a disease for which there was no other solution?

Or did doctors recommend this to the parents for supposed "medical benefits?"

Did the doctors tell the parents that their 4-year-old was suffering "phimosis?"

Were the risks of circumcision clearly explained to the child's parents?

If there was no medical indication, then clearly here, the doctors are to blame, for offering this "choice" to the child's parents.

Reaping profit from non-medical surgery on healthy, non-consenting individuals constitutes medical fraud. In children, clear child abuse.

The saddest part of this is that without clear medical or clinical indication, basically this child died in vain.

Had the child not been submitted to this needless procedure, he would still be alive.

Final Words
The foreskin is not a birth defect. Neither is it a congenital deformity or genetic anomaly akin to a 6th finger or a cleft. Neither is it a medical condition like a ruptured appendix or diseased gall bladder. Neither is it a dead part of the body, like the umbilical cord, hair, or fingernails.

The foreskin is not "extra skin." The foreskin is normal, natural, healthy, functioning tissue, present in all males at birth; it is as intrinsic to male genitalia as labia are to female genitalia.

Unless there is a medical or clinical indication, the circumcision of a healthy, non-consenting individuals is a deliberate wound; it is the destruction of normal, healthy tissue, the permanent disfigurement of normal, healthy organs, and by very definition, infant genital mutilation, and a violation of the most basic of human rights.

Without medical or clinical indication, doctors have absolutely no business performing surgery in healthy, non-consenting individuals, much less be eliciting any kind of "decision" from parents.

Circumcision has risks.

The risks of circumcision include infection, hemorrhage, partial or full ablation and even death.

Death is a risk of circumcision.

How many times do I have to say this?

Death is a risk of circumcision.

Are parents being adequately informed about this risk?

Had this couple known about this risk, would they have changed their minds?

Death is a risk of circumcision.

Death is a risk of circumcision.

Are you listening AAP?

Death is a risk of circumcision.

Circumcision has claimed yet another child.

His blood is on the hands of the AAP and any other medical organization that dares parrot them.
