Public Service Announcement

The odds of a boy *ever* needing to be circumcised for medical reasons are just 1%.

Conversely, circumcision guarantees a child:

  • 100% risk of losing “the most sensitive parts of the penis” LINK
  • 71% risk of penile adhesions LINK
  • 10% risk of meatal stenosis LINK
  • 1% risk of circumcision revision LINK

…and that’s to say nothing of immediate surgical risks including, but not limited to, anesthesia reaction, hemorrhage, infection, penile amputation and death or later complications like painful erections from too much skin being removed or the progressive keratinization (drying, thickening) of the glans.

A foreskin is not a birth defect.
