At what age does the most natural, motherly act of nourishing and nurturing a child suddenly transform into pedophilia and child abuse? 4? 5? 6? 7? Seriously?

A mother of two intact sons, Amber Clark believes the ethical and humane choice for parents considering infant circumcision is to hold off and let their sons decide for themselves when they grow up. Her research shows that infants feel pain more acutely than adults, lack safe and effective options for anesthesia (which are available for adults), have greater risk of complications including severe complications and death than do adults, and have to go through a much more invasive operation than do adults, as the foreskin is still adhered to the glans in infancy (while retractable in adults).

Let’s not mince words about it. That’s what circumcision is – torture, sexual assault, genital mutilation, unconscionable child abuse, and one of the most egregious violations of human rights in history.
Is Whole Foods Animal Welfare Rating System telling the “whole” truth about how animals live out their lives before being slaughtered, processed, and sold in well marketed packages?
