At Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, OH more than two hundred baby boys will be circumcised in a study to determine whether the Gomco or the Mogon clamps are “better” in terms of pain and complications. They will be measuring this by observing which clamp results in more blood-soaked bandages and whether the babies are showing painful facial expressions during the procedure.
Although it is still somewhat common for people to think that this surgery is necessary or even preventative, every proposed benefit has been thoroughly debunked. The reality is that this procedure permanently removes an important, functional and highly sensitive part of the body while putting the child at serious risk. Over one hundred little boys die from circumcision in the United States every year. There is even an organization started by doctors who refuse to perform this unnecessary surgery because they see it as a direct violation of the Hippocratic Oath. You can learn more of the real facts about circumcision here.
Intact America is hosting a press conference and demonstration on October 3, 2013 outside Good Samaritan Hospital in an effort to stop this dangerous clinical trial. They need your help to collect 10,000 signatures; please add your signature and pass this on. Let’s work together to stop this cruel experiment while helping bring attention to the truth about circumcision.
It’s very likely that the parents giving consent have not been honestly informed of the details and risks involved and therefore don’t realize the harm their babies face. The Gomco versus Mogon study serves no purpose aside from helping “researchers” compile unscientific “evidence” to support the use of a device that causes un-needed harm (and possibly even death) to these helpless children who have no voice. Every child deserves the right to genital integrity and no human should be experimented on without voluntary consent.
If you live in the Cincinnati area, you’re welcome to join this demonstration. You can find out more information and RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/events/483717488390739/
