Death is a risk of circumcision.
An estimated 117 deaths occur every year in the United States due to circumcision. This is a rough estimate, and more conservative than its predecessors (in the past, estimates have been as high as 200 or more deaths per year). The fact is, hospitals are not required to release this data. Adding to this is the fact that doctors lie about a child’s cause of death to cover their own bases, and parents, wanting to divorce themselves of any fault in their son’s death, are complicit in repeating whatever their doctors tell them.
The child “bled to death.” The child “suffered hemorrhage.” The child “went into cardiac arrest.” The child died of “septic shock.”
Nevermind the circumcision performed on him beforehand.
What have the parents to say about the possibility that circumcision most likely killed their baby?
They’re grieving. Don’t you dare bother them.
And a year later, “Don’t remind them. It breaks their heart every time.”
Nobody wants to talk about it.
Meanwhile, the tragedies continue.
So when is it a good time to talk about it?
When is a good time to break the silence?
