Defending an inclusive right to genital and bodily integrity for children

Author: Kate Goldie Townsend, University of Exeter

At the time of writing in mid-2021, policy on child genital cutting and modification is inconsistent in the UK, US, and most European states, and there is growing consensus that this inconsistency should end [1–10]. The question addressed here, is whether Western liberal democracies ought to discourage, if not legally prohibit, all forms of medically unnecessary child genital cutting and modification, or permit some relatively minor forms. Given the core political values of Western liberal democracies, including a commitment to human rights, this piece takes a liberal normative approach and argues that individual rights to bodily – and especially genital – integrity should take priority over group rights if they come into conflict…

And a little postscript from Patricia:
If parents, religious and medical personnel would allow themselves to stop, close their eyes, take a breath, ask themselves sincere questions and listen within for honest answers, circumcision would end in a heartbeat. When someone at last sees the child as a beautiful, perfect creation, no one could harm him (or her) in any way.

The fact that the cruel practice of circumcision has endured for millennia, and is celebrated even today, indicates that a powerful form of social mind-control  that convinces parents to close their hearts and allow their children to be sexually abused.

Love, awe, compassion and protection are the normal, appropriate attitudes adults have toward the miracle we call a child. For adults to prey on children for pleasure or profit is foreign and abhorrent to human nature.

 

Scientific Study Concludes that 5G Wireless Radiation Exacerbated COVID-19

This is World War III, folks. Electro-magnetic frequencies (EMF) are also called EMR – electro-magnetic radiation.

We wrote about the 5G-Cv connection here on TCR when the Cv issue first began. The vx contains elements that turn humans into radio-frequency-receptive robots; the 5G system transmits orders; we receive our assignments; we obey.

Have you read “1984” yet? If not, here’s a link to the Complete Works of George Orwell, who I believe was either trying to warn us of the plans that were afoot even in 1948 – or was doing that “pre-programming” thing the “elite” love to do so we grant our tacit consent to the project. Read “1984” and withdraw your consent if you don’t want to live in the world Orwell wrote about.

A research paper published by the National Institute of Health in October 2021 studied peer-reviewed scientific literature on the detrimental bioeffects of wireless communications radiation (WCR), including 5G, which may have contributed to the COVID-19 pandemic as a toxic environmental co-factor. The study presented evidence that WCR/ 5G may cause changes in red blood cells (erythrocytes), reduced erythrocyte levels exacerbating hypoxia/deprivation of oxygen to the brain, amplified immunosuppression, increased cellular oxidative stress resulting in vascular injury and organ damage, promoted inflammation, and worsened heart disorders.

COVID-19 began in Wuhan, China in December 2019, shortly after city-wide 5G had “gone live,” and became an operational system, on October 31, 2019. COVID-19 outbreaks soon followed in other areas where 5G had also been at least partially implemented, including South Korea, Northern Italy, New York City, Seattle, and Southern California. During the first pandemic wave in the United States, COVID-19 attributed cases and deaths were statistically higher in states and major cities with 5G infrastructure as compared with states and cities that did not yet have this technology…
