    Well I'm sure she would have sterilized it. No mother would be that neglectful to their newborn!

    I feel sick in my stomach. My mother is a professional body piercer (in another life) and she pierced both my girls but it was done at an age when they knew what was happening and readily wanted them.
    I almost think you should be inclined to report it. I know it's not against the law to pierce your children's ears but having 2 guns go bang at the same time, done and over with is a bit different then having a thin long needle slowly pierce the skin, come
    Back out and then having a much thicker earring pushed through and then x 2 having it done all over again. WTF - that in my eyes is criminal!!!

    I'm just playing devil's advocate, I don't condone it, but is it that much different to babies getting the heel prick test done?
