Baby Boy Struggles with Circumcision Hemorrhage: Mom Pleads with Parents to Reconsider


Tennessee mom, Shyanne, and her little one need love and healing as they wrestle with one of the worst outcomes of infant circumcision that we see far too often among newborn babies in the United States each week.

She publicly writes:

If everyone could please continue to pray for my sweet sweet baby. They are keeping us overnight at Children’s to monitor everything, and I will post updates as I find out. Yesterday I made the worst decision of my life. I regret strongly how I allowed my doctor to torture my son, and I will never forgive myself. I 'researched' circumcision when I was pregnant, and saw that it was cleaner, prevented UTIs, infection, and STDs, and I believed it... Please consider this before making the decision to get your baby circumcised! This is something that will haunt me for the rest of my life, something that I can’t take back... Not just a surgery gone wrong, but a surgery that should have never happened. 
💔

An IV line is commonly placed into the scalp of a newborn baby if their peripheral veins are otherwise inaccessible, while they are in intense pain, hemorrhaging, or dehydrated (causing vasoconstriction).

If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were an Intact Advocate Alive Today...




Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today - a leader who shared countless wise thoughts, and led a revolution in social change. 

What would he say if he were alive today to witness the treatment of so many newborn babies,
born of all skin colors in the United States?

Would he have thoughts on the continued lies pushed upon African men and women today? Or the myths that surround Black American families -- with pressures to cut their baby boys.

We can only speculate, but his words lend insight.
