CIRCUMCISION BOTCH: Another Post-Circumcision Hemorrhage Case Surfaces on Facebook

The American Academy of Pediatrics minimizes the risks and complications of male infant circumcision.

What are the risks?

And are parents being properly informed about them?

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

As minimal as those risks may be, they are real, and parents ought to be informed about them.

The following case managed to appear on Facebook recently:

Are these risks worth it for non-medical, elective surgery on healthy, non-consenting minors?

Without medical or clinical indication, how is it possible doctors are even performing surgery on healthy, non-consenting minors, let alone giving parents any kind of "choice?"

This is just one case, and I constantly read about them on my Facebook news feed.

As it stands, doctors and hospitals are not required to report adverse effects of circumcision, and they have financial incentive to keep this information under wraps.

No one is counting, so the true risks of circumcision are unknown.

Because male infant circumcision is elective, non-medical surgery, how is anything above zero conscionable?
