I guess, according to this pediatrician, it's okay to remain unbeheaded, as long as I occasionally wash that too. Every mammal is born with a foreskin; to call an intact human male "uncircumcised" makes about as much sense. You can't "un" something that has never been that way. You must wash all your body parts. Washing a normal male body is just as simple as washing a normal female, and vastly easier than caring for an open wound in a dirty diaper. Shall we ask him how much he pocket$ for every child he cuts? The bottom line? Every human, no matter his age, has the right to bodily autonomy. It is not the parents' right to choose for another person (or his future partners) how his body parts look and function. Children are not property.

Great to read about this very important protest, men and women standing up for the rights of children. Dr. Naseer needs to re-examine his/her understanding of medial ethics. Surgery without dire need and expressed understanding and consent of the patient is UNETHICAL! Cutting up the healthy genitals of children is medical fraud and child abuse.

Who cares? Joshua Dugger isn't even a legal resident of Tennessee --- just like the Illinois attorney who drafted Senate Joint Resolution 127/proposed Tennessee Amendment 1.
