New-Born Males To Be Circumcised

The government is really going in on this male circumcision thing after a decision to nip little baby boys was made.

The national coordinator of male circumcision – yes we have one of those – Dr Sinokuthemba Xaba, says the decision was made to increase the number of circumcised people in the country.

New-born babies will be circumcised in ZimbabweRan Yaniv Hartstein / Foter / CC BY

You see they planned to have 1.2 million males circumcised males in Zimbabwe by the year 2015, and it seems as if this was not going well. So they decided to come after the little babies who have no choice in the whole matter. Never mind the fact that the the little boys will not be having sex for at least 16 years after they are born. So can’t make the figures? Let’s fudge them like a Nigerian election. Well only a technicality.

At least they say they will be asking for the parents’ consent…

    Forced genital cutting is patently evil. Those boys could be allowed to grow to a rational age and decide for themselves whether a very dubious STI benefit is worth a dramatic loss of sexual sensation.

    Foreskin feels REALLY good.

    • How is it patently evil lol

        Every moral or ethical code in wide use today would declare that taking things without permission is wrong.

        Proxy consent for an irreversible amputation is only ethical if waiting for the patient’s OWN rational informed consent would lead to harm, and when non-destructive options have been exhausted.
        Circumcision alters sex dramatically. There are no supposed benefits of the proposed which can’t be garnered through non-destructive means.
        HIS body, HIS decision.
