In more than 50 years of pediatric practice, I have never seen a single, legitimate medical reason for foreskin amputation -- never, not one! I think we have been lied to by a lot of people in the medical business, and we politely accepted what they said as fact. -Paul Fleiss, M.D.

Most parents want what is best for their baby. Wise parents listen to their hearts and trust their instinct to protect their baby from harm. The experience of the ages has shown that babies thrive best in a trusting atmosphere of love, gentleness, respect, acceptance, nurturing and intimacy. Circumcision wounds and harms the baby, and the person the baby will become. Parents who respect their son's wholeness are bequeathing to him his birthright - his body, perfect and beautiful in its entirety. -Paul Fleiss, M.D.
