Freedom70No-one, absolutely no-one, has the right (outside of individual medical advice) to mutilate the genitals of a child. The fact that Male Genital Mutilation has been granted respectability by calling it 'circumcision' is totally irrelevant. It is nothing short of child abuse. That is to say it is an abuse of the childs inability to say "No, I don't want my penis mutilating".
Those who carry out this practice are living in the stone age. Even those of the Jewish faith, are at last beginning to see the light and the elders have now introduced an alternative 'naming ceremony' to carry out on the eighth day.
The suggestion that it is 'cleaner to be cut' is absolute balderdash.
The thing I don't understand is this; Why on earth don't the human rights activists push this forward?. Are they afraid of upsetting certain religious groups? In fact the European Courrt of Human Rights (relating to the Child) passed a resolution years ago defending the childs right to remain 'as nature intended' until the age of eighteen when that child could do whatever it wanted to its body.
It's time to end this abomination NOW.
