    Default 13 Babies infected with Herpes contracted from traditional circing *Trigger warning*

    I cannot believe that this is still legal. Not just because of the Herpes - but the way they actually do it as well.

    "Since 2000 13 known cases of herpes have been contracted from the religious practice
    Two deaths and two babies suffering brain damage have resulted
    Department of health warns there being no safe way to perform the ritual that dates back more than 5,000 years"

    They call it religious freedom. I call it child abuse.

    I had never heard of this practice before. Wrong on so many levels

    I'm not pro circ but DS is done and I never normally step into the circ threads anymore.... but that is just foul on so many levels. I also cannot handle that they don't use a local. Sucking on a sore wound with their mouth? that is unhygienic and extremely creepy.

    I don't need to read the article to know of the practice you're talking about.

    So wrong on so many levels.

    The right to religious freedom does not include the right to take an 8 day old baby, inflict unnecessary pain, surgically modify their body and put their life at risk to ensure that a custom is followed.

    WTF???? Did I read that right?
    How the hell are these people not being charged with sexual abuse of children? I don't give a damn what justification these people use but they are orally raping children .

    Someone tell me I read that wrong ? I have had very little sleep so apologies if I'm ranting from misunderstanding something .
