THE ASHLEY MONTAGU RESOLUTION OPPOSES

Egyptian image of an adolescent being circumcised as a doctor's aide holds him still.


Circumcision was practiced in Egypt as long ago as 4000 BC. According to the inscription on this bas-relief from the Ankh-Mahor tomb at Sakkara, the youth balks and must be held by the doctor's aide. Adapted from: Sixth Dynasty bas-relief from the tomb of Ankh-ma-hor at Saqqara. From: The Truth Seeker, July/August 1989. Source Credit: Gerald A. Larue, Ph.D.
