This man cuts his children's genitals with a box cutter, no anesthesia, has damaged their sexuality, and robbed them of a WHOLE LOT more...and he gets 120 days jailtime for "misdemeanor child abuse".
And it all happens the same week that an OH family is charged with the same for their safe, gentle, baby-friendly homebirth... Again, I have to wonder: What is wrong with us!?!
*Note: The accused man is correct about not doing anything that would not be done in the hospital - the vast majority of baby boys undergoing genital cutting (circumcision) in the United States receive NO anesthesia for the amputation. Anesthesia of any kind is counter indicated for newborns as it can be harmful. Last I checked, circumcision is also counter indicated and always harmful as well.
