Anonymous asked: So let me see if I have this right, according to Waluigi, it's ok to make sure something has no future, but it's not ok to allow it to have a future, minus a foreskin? Would it be ok if there was a way to circumcise in utero? I'm trying to see where the line is drawn for you.
Is this about my views on abortion?
Let’s look at the differences between a fetus and a child about to have a circumcision, shall we?
A fetus can’t feel pain before 24 weeks. A child about to have a circumcision? Can 100% feel pain.
A fetus cannot survive outside of it’s mother before a certain time period (roughly the third trimester.) A child can.
Children are conscious. A fetus isn’t.
A fetus has no idea that it is being aborted, because it doesn’t have the cognitive ability to understand the concept. A child understands pain and is conscious enough to know that something is very, very wrong during circumcision.
Abortion is like you’re getting the ingredients to bake a cake…but while the ingredients are still in the mixing bowl you decide you don’t want a cake and you scoop it out into the trash.
Infant circumcision is like making the cake to completion, then before serving it you scrape all the frosting off.
As a circumcised individual, I have no memory of the pain and am told that I slept through the ordeal.
Infants can’t remember anything. 117 infants die each year from either blood loss or shock. (Shock can actually knock you unconscious, and for an infant it would look like they’re sleeping peacefully).
I think if you look back through my circumcision tag on my blog you could find a series of photos from facebook of a mother who had her infant circumcised and she said that “He didn’t cry a bit, look at him sleeping peacefully.” Later the infant’s heart stopped and they were unable to resuscitate him. He died of complications resulting from circumcision.
I wish people would stop chiming in with testimony like “well they did it to me and it was no big deal so I don’t see what the fuss is.” I was circumcised, and it has significantly effected the sensation in the head of my penis. Loss of about 20,000 nerve endings can tend to do that.
