Some parents in Florida have sued a hospital over the unwanted circumcision of their son while he was in NICU.
I hope they win and that the judgment is so huge that doctors & hospitals will cease involving themselves in the routine mutilation of little boys.
The parents of a four-year-old boy who was circumcised at a Miami hospital against their wishes are suing the facility.
According to Delgado’s attorneys, Viera’s parents told South Miamidoctors several times that they did not want him circumcised.
Though Viera had spent over a week in the NICU for birth-related complications, at one point, he was taken out of the NICU and the circumcision was performed. (via)
Frankly, I think the adults who do this should be put in jail for a very long time. I don’t care about religious/cultural traditions. No one should get to practice either on the bodies of other people, children included.
