Why are males not given the same protection?
Popular today is “HER BODY HER CHOICE” when it comes to decisions that effect females concerning their body. Yet, I have been flipped off, called names, and laughed at when people read the bumper sticker on my truck that reads, “HIS BODY HIS CHOICE / SAY NO TO CIRCUMCISION”.
Are males not worth the same consideration?
If a doctor were to cut off a perfectly healthy fully functioning piece of tissue from a baby girl for monetary gain, he would go to jail and loose his license. Yet, that same doctor can legally cut off a piece of healthy fully functioning piece of tissue from a baby boy and gets to cash a check for his efforts. That’s right, not only does the doctor charge the parents for permanently modifying their son, but he then sells the foreskin to biomedical companies, where it ends up in face cream and shampoo.
So, are baby boys only worth the going rate and who is willing to pay for it?
If a baby girl were to die, from a medically unnecessary procedure, there would be outrage and disgust from the public. However, over 100 baby boys bleed to death, have heart attacks, strokes, and choke to death on their own vomit during and after a circumcision. Yet nobody says a word, because foreskin is a billion dollar industry.
