This is a beautiful verse from The Book of Mormon that has always intrigued me:
Listen to the words of Christ, your Redeemer, your Lord and your God. Behold, I came into the world not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance; the whole need no physician, but they that are sick; wherefore, little children are whole, for they are not capable of committing sin; wherefore the curse of Adam is taken from them in me, that it hath no power over them; and the law of circumcision is done away in me.
The sad and ironic part is that Mormon boys are circumcised. But the scripture seems to be very clear and clean. Maybe they just forgot to read that verse; maybe they need to be reminded.
For those who are concerned about the practice of routine infant circumcision in the USA… or for those who are simply curious… see the link below.
There’s a teeny tiny little trailer box above the words on the American Circumcision webpage. You can tell how I think about circumcision by the keywords I chose, above the title of this post. I wrote a book about FGM in the USA because it happened to me. Parents, please protect your children from cruel people wielding sharp knives. They will be far healthier and happier if not tortured.

Please watch the Rock-a-bye Baby movie, above. It runs less than a half hour and is worth watching. Think seriously about how very strange it is for medical and scientific investigators to subject animals and children to experiments like those in the movie.
Operation Paperclip brought many Nazi doctors and scientists to our shores after World War II. With them, they brought medical birth and circumcision.
The practice of pathologizing birth has detrimentally influenced the quality of life in the USA. It is obvious to people who hail from countries where birthing and parenting are seen as simple, happy, natural, human activities, that our society in general has suffered greatly.
Our nation is far from happy and healthy. Much healing is needed.
Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by a lack of empathy and remorse, shallow affect, glibness, manipulation and callousness. Previous research indicates that the rate of psychopathy in prisons is around 23%, greater than the average population which is around 1%. From Neurological basis for lack of empathy in psychopaths
1) I’m a hypnotherapist and can vouch for the fact that memories are never lost; always there, and can be remembered. In fact, we need to remember so we can release the trauma that got stuck when we were in fear. 2) I’m a circumcised female (“The Rape of Innocence: Female Genital Mutilation and Circumcision in the USA”) and I can relate 100% to what Gerald says here… except for his additional birth problems… so sorry for that horror, Gerald. You didn’t deserve to be treated like that… nobody does. 3) I’ve met other c’d women and yes, they all have that “macho” kind of mentality. 4) Yes, circumcision is a form of mind-control… a form of Satanic Ritual Abuse. 5) The GOOD news is, men can restore up to 75-80% of what they lost… foreskin restoration.
Cot death occurs when a seemingly healthy infant – under 12 months of age – dies in their sleep with no cause of death established in a post-mortem investigation. Although many risk factors are known to increase the risk of cot death – such as maternal smoking and bed sharing – nobody is exactly sure why it happens.
Research, for example, indicates that cot death is more common in boys than girls – at a ratio of 3:2. Studies also show it is 39% lower among US Hispanic communities compared to non-Hispanic people. There is also a seasonal variation – most cases occurring in winter. And 50% of cases occur between seven and 17 weeks after birth – with only 10% of cot deaths occurring after 24 weeks.
My research from 2016, suggested that exposure to chronic stress, such as that caused by maternal smoking, can put a baby at higher risk of cot death – and that early circumcision may also be one of the major risk factors in sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) or cot death in boys.
In my latest study, I analysed the data on SIDS and male neonatal circumcision across 15 countries – where post-mortem examination of infants is mandatory – which included 40 US states. The results show a strong correlation between early circumcision and cot death. So where male neonatal circumcision rates are high, higher rates of cot death occur…

And as our very own Richard Winkel commented, circumcision may also factor into the equation. After all, violence begets violence.
As a circumcised woman, I have always related better to men than women, and I finally realized it was because I relate better to traumatized people than peaceful people. Circumcision certainly sends the message that you are not valued, not respected, not loved and cherished; that you are no more than a body, a slab of meat; that you must submit to authority because you are powerless, helpless and hopeless. These teachings can stick and need to be seen for what they are, then thoroughly “divorced”, released. They are false, destructive, subconscious mind-control teachings that surely have tormented some who have given up this beautiful gift of life prematurely.
Males in the USA commit suicide four times as often as females and I have often wondered if that might have something to do with circumcision. I tell the story of my childhood interest in suicide in my book The Rape of Innocence: Female Genital Mutilation and Circumcision in the USA. I have also met other circumcised women who have also reported serious attempts at suicide very early in life.
Now that the birthing process is more violent for both baby genders, even though females so far have been spared routine infant circumcision, undue birth trauma and daily stressors are extreme for both, so some girls may be as suicidal and reactive as boys. It’s just not easy being a people – especially in a world where someone sitting in a palatial estate somewhere apparently wants to rule the world… and is working hard to make that happen.
I’d prefer to live in a life-affirming world where no one is traumatized by birth practices and all people are blessed with a peaceful beginning; with wise parents, kind teachers and a safe society; in a world filled with respect for life, joy, love.
