Ask your local library and bookstores to buy copies. Tell friends, family, doctors, nurses, physical therapists and psychoanalysts, parents. They have all been caught in a cruel meme, a socially transmitted practice detrimental to children, that sticks like glue to the adult he or she becomes.
It is the lingering trauma and programming that concerns me, and that should concern us all. Circumcision is a quality of life issue. It is a human right denied. Every child who is cut leaves not only with a physical scar, but with PTSD, a legacy of terror, a host of psychological scars that can last a lifetime.
Read the book. If you like it, please go back to amazon.com and leave a review.
