The Case Against Circumcision
By Paul M. Fleiss, M.D.
Circumcision started in America during the masturbation hysteria of the Victorian Era, when a few American doctors circumcised boys to punish them for masturbating. Victorian doctors knew very well that circumcision denudes, desensitizes, and disables the penis. Nevertheless, they were soon claiming that circumcision cured epilepsy, convulsions, paralysis, elephantiasis, tuberculosis, eczema, bed-wetting, hip-joint disease, fecal incontinence, rectal prolapse, wet dreams, hernia, headaches, nervousness, hysteria, poor eyesight, idiocy, mental retardation, and insanity.
In fact, no procedure in the history of medicine has been claimed to cure and prevent more diseases than circumcision. As late as the 1970s, leading American medical textbooks still advocated routine circumcision as a way to prevent masturbation. The antisexual motivations behind an operation that entails cutting off part of the penis are obvious.
The radical practice of routinely circumcising babies did not begin until the Cold War era. This institutionalization of what amounted to compulsory circumcision was part of the same movement that pathologized and medicalized birth and actively discouraged breastfeeding. Private-sector, corporate-run hospitals institutionalized routine circumcision without ever consulting the American people. There was no public debate or referendum. It was only in the 1970s that a series of lawsuits forced hospitals to obtain parental consent to perform this contraindicated but highly profitable surgery. Circumcisers responded by inventing new “medical” reasons for circumcision in an attempt to scare parents into consenting.
Today the reasons given for circumcision have been updated to play on contemporary fears and anxieties; but one day they, too, will be considered irrational. Now that such current excuses as the claim that this procedure prevents cancer and sexually transmitted diseases have been thoroughly discredited, circumcisers will undoubtedly invent new ones. But if circumcisers were really motivated by purely medical considerations, the procedure would have died out long ago, along with leeching, skull-drilling, and castration. The fact that it has not suggests that the compulsion to circumcise came first, the “reasons,” later.
Millions of years of evolution have fashioned the human body into a model of refinement, elegance, and efficiency, with every part having a function and purpose. Evolution has determined that mammals’ genitals should be sheathed in a protective, responsive, multipurpose foreskin. Every normal human being is born with a foreskin. In females, it protects the glans of the clitoris; in males, it protects the glans of the penis. Thus, the foreskin is an essential part of human sexual anatomy.
Parents should enjoy the arrival of a new child with as few worries as possible. The birth of a son in the US, however, is often fraught with anxiety and confusion. Most parents are pressured to hand their baby sons over to a stranger, who, behind closed doors, straps babies down and cuts their foreskins off. The Billion-dollar-a-year circumcision industry has bombarded Americans with confusing rhetoric and calculated scare tactics.
Information about the foreskin itself is almost always missing from discussions about circumcision. The mass circumcision campaigns of the past few decades have resulted in pandemic ignorance about this remarkable structure and its versatile role in human sexuality. Ignorance and false information about the foreskin are the rule in American medical literature, education, and practice. Most American medical textbooks depict the human penis, without explanation, as circumcised, as if it were so by nature.
Circumcision is almost unheard of in Europe, South America, and non-Muslim Asia. In fact, only 10 to 15 percent of men throughout the world are circumcised, the vast majority of whom are Muslim. The neonatal circumcision rate in the western US has now fallen to 34.2 percent. This relatively diminished rate may surprise American men born during the era when nearly 90 percent of baby boys were circumcised automatically, with or without their parents’ consent.
No one has the right to cut off any part of someone else’s genitals without that person’s competent, fully informed consent. Since it is the infant who must bear the consequences, circumcision violates his legal rights both to refuse treatment and to seek alternative treatment. In 1995, the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Bioethics stated that only a competent patient can give patient consent or informed consent.67 An infant is obviously too young to consent to anything. He must be protected from anyone who would take advantage of his defenselessness. The concept of informed parental permission allows for medical interventions in situations of clear and immediate medical necessity only, such as disease, trauma, or deformity. The human penis in its normal, uncircumcised state satisfies none of these requirements.
Physicians have a duty to refuse to perform circumcision. They also must educate parents who, out of ignorance or misguidance, request this surgery for their sons. The healthcare professional’s obligation is to protect the interests of the child. It is unethical in the extreme to force upon a child an amputation he almost certainly would never have chosen for himself.
To be intact, as nature intended, is best. The vast majority of males who are given the choice value their wholeness and keep their foreskins, for the same reason they keep their other organs of perception. Parents in Europe and non-Muslim Asia never have forced their boys to be circumcised. It would no more occur to them to cut off part of their boys’ penises than it would to cut off part of their ears. Respecting a child’s right to keep his genitals intact is normal and natural. It is conservative in the best sense of the word. >>Full article HERE
“Routine circumcision of babies in the United States did not begin until the Cold War era. Circumcision is almost unheard of in Europe, Southern America, and non-Muslim Asia. In fact, only 10 to 15 percent of men throughout the world are circumcised.”
“The natural penis requires no special care. A child’s foreskin, like his eyelids, is self-cleansing. Forcibly retracting a baby’s foreskin can lead to irritation and infection. The best way to care for a child’s intact penis is to LEAVE IT ALONE.”
Editor’s Note: The following commentary comes from this SOURCE , so I’m including it as an extension to the above.
“(Bobby) Fischer is sincere in his disappointment towards Jew, but he doesn’t understand that they cannot convert to Christianity. More then 2 millennium ago the Jewish elite came up with a conceptual plan to rule the planet. They devised to religions. Christianity-the religion for slaves and Judaism-religion for slave watchers. In order to organize Jews they developed a ritual-circumcision. Yes, this ritual is used by Muslims when their kids rich the age of 12-14 year. The Jews do it on the 8th day. This exactly when a human brain develops and opens chakras. So, why on the 8th day, not on the 5th day or 231st day? Within the first 14 days a human sole opens up all 7 chakras. Within 8 days a human sole opens only 3:
muladhara-instinct, survival, security and health
svadhisthana-sexual energy, sex hormones and reproductive instincts, etc. (Are you curious now who runs the sex and porn industry?)
manipura-power, control, carrier, confidence, etc.
And all of a sudden a little boy experiences pain in the most sensitive organ. It creates a “noise” in the brain and does not develop other chakras:
anāhata-love, compassion, devotion
viśuddha-creativity, harmony, internal voice of truth
ājñā-intuition, intellectus, higher level of conscience,
sahasrāra-connection to cosmos, complete freedom
As you can see, the absence of viśuddha allows Bernanke to look straight into the camera and lie to millions of people, just like it did his predecessor Greenspan. That’s why when these people loot nations they do not burden themselves with the internal voice of truth, compassion and other garbage.
These feelings are simply not available to these people. But Jewish women do not undergo this cruel procedure as you notices they have no place in Jewish business. All business among Jews and Goiym is done by men. So the simple solution to the problem is to confiscate looted wealth and return it to looted nations.
Stop this cruel procedure and the Jews will return to natural cycle of being normal people, instead of being biological robots serving the ruling elite-who as you guessed do not follow any religions, but their own occult knowledge. That’s why you will never see Rockefeller or Rothschild in a synagogue or church. Ah, most importantly – no need for gas chambers and concentration camps.”
