    Default Circumcision death?

    What are your thoughts on this?
    http://joseph4gi.blogspot.com.au/201...one-i.html?m=1

    I'm anti circ, but I wouldn't call this death as a result of circumcision. The baby had hemophilia. If he didn't have hemophilia he wouldn't have died as a result of a circumcision.

    Circumcision played a huge part, there's no denying that, but it wasn't circumcision alone, was it? He could have split his head at 6 months old and the same could have happened. It easily could have been anything else, which is why I wouldn't call it a circumcision death.

    The circumcision was the bearer of bad news in regards to being hemophilic (sp?). The parents and medical professionals would have believed that he was healthy, why would they think otherwise? Did you test your child for hemophilia when they were born? I didn't.

    Generally it runs in families but i guess the mum could have carried it without ever knowing (until now).

    I have to agree with this.

    I don't like circing and think there's no need for it. But I wouldn't blame the procedure for the death. Had he not been a hemophiliac it's unlikely that he'd have died of blood loss.
    The circing didn't cause the disorder.

    It's very sad though I know I wouldn't assume that my bub had what is a relatively uncommon disorder, especially when they're so young and haven't yet had a bleeding instance for someone to realise that there was a problem. Poor little guy .

    How very tragic

    The baby died because he was hemophiliac but if he hadn't had been circ'd he wouldn't have died, but we don't know how severe the hemophilia was or any statistics on how it is usually identified so we can speculate all we want but that's all it is, speculation.

    Having said that, this is a risk of circ along with infections and other complications. If you're want to circ your baby you should be aware of the medical risks associated, death being one of them.

    I'm having trouble getting past the fact that if he hadn't been circumcised, he wouldn't have died from his condition after the circumcision.

    Sure, it is possible he may have died from some other situation down the track, there's no possible way of knowing that, or whether he would have been diagnosed with his condition managed and lived a full life, but what we can know with certainty is that if he hadn't been circd, he wouldn't have died from the combination of the procedure & his condition.

    As a mother I would not be able to live with that.
