In response to local vegan MP’s post about slaughterhouses’ dubious conduct in the humane treatment of animals – she did not mention halal or kosher slaughter methods …
Video every kill by law. Method of slaughter to be included in food labeling. Stop meat that has been slaughtered according to Islamic or Jewish hard line religious law being put into the food chain without being labelled as such – the cult followers insist that their meat is labelled – ordinary people don’t want to subsidize this gross form of occult practice that is cruel to animals. Stop cult followers from cruelly slitting the throats of animals in the name of their idols – this is gross – they are more concerned with religious doctrine than the humane treatment of animals – they are quite prepared to skin the peni of their male children (this should be legislated against) so there is not much hope of these religious zealots reforming their bronze age cult without legislation. It was sexist not to include boys and intersex children in the legislation that claims to protect Somali heritage Muslim British girls from these barbaric cult rituals. Shame on you Politicians – for allowing that to happen – it was because the Politically correct had a crisis of cause – and Mr Rothschild wanders around the corridors of power without being elected – religious “freedom” or protect all children from their parents desire to mutilate them – you guys chose to let boys and intersex kids be cut about for an easy political life. Disgusting. Sexist, Discriminates against Somalis in favour of Jews and other Muslims. Totally messed up morals – inept application of ethics in the unsuccesful legislation – how can you tell a person -“you can dock your son’s penis on the kitchen table if you like – but don’t send your girl to a top Egyptian surgeon who will take only a symbolic nick from her genitalia to acknowledge the hadith”. Change the law so all children are protected – no child has religious freedom to avoid their penis being skinned – no baby has a religion. It’s touching you are concerned for animal welfare – but still in this country baby boys die from circumcision operations that are totally medically uncalled for. Barbarians. Many modern Jews no longer do this blood sacrifice ritual anymore – so the rest of the cult followers can follow suite. Religious freedom is not license to be cruel to children and animals. I will be following your efforts on these fronts. Is genital mutilation a Labour Policy so long as it is not a girl?
“The recent problems — deaths, amputations, injuries, gangsters — occurring in male initiation schools have resulted in negative perceptions of the practice; perceptions which find expression in criticism directed at the initiation schools, especially that they represent an outdated cultural practice,” said the commission’s chairperson, Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva.

Survivors of botched circumcisions live in secrecy
Again a child suffers for its parents’ “religious” self-centered folly.
Kuznetsova, a devout Russian Orthodox Christian, says the boy’s parents must be held accountable for his death, regardless of whatever religious reasons they had for circumcising him at home and denying him proper medical attention. She also told reporters that there’s no need for additional legislation in response to this death, explaining that existing laws against endangering children are sufficient to prosecute those responsible.
Russian Police Investigate the Parents of a Boy Who Died After a Home Circumcision
Hospital mutilation of infant goes wrong. Infant dies. On average I notice at least one death from around the world reported every month. I have only heard of one FGM death in the world in the past six months. Few people seem to care about boy babies getting slit up …
The WHO (World Health Organisation) should treat all children equally and not just protect girls from circumcision …
Baby dies after circumcision surgery
American academic paper which raises all the main issues. Things are beginning to change in the USA. I hope to see all children, boys,girls, and intersex, protected from genital mutilation. The law and medical ethics should be applied without gender bias. If society can override the wishes of irrational religious people concerning gay marriage – then secular law should protect all children from religious blood rites. It is a sad condemnation of western society that the feelings of adults are addressed before the harm to children. Religion has no right to demand genital mutilation of boys – and everyone in society needs to wake up to this. People who promote this should be treated like people who promote FGM. Equality for boys.
Excellent article on the odds of medical intervention being required for the male foreskin.
“… Let’s set ethical arguments about pain, consent, divine design, etc. aside for now. Let’s just look at the math. What are the odds that your son will actually need to have a circumcision later?”
