Name—Country Comment
Underwood, Matt—Australia It is a crime against human rights, and is not done for the benefit of the victim, but for the self appeasement and/or gratification of the perpetrator. It should end now.
Unluagac, Sara—USA Genital mutilation of children and adults must stop regardless of the reasons people site to continue it(medical,social,religious).There is NO excuse for this barbaric practice. It is my hope that all forms of genital mutilation be banned.There is no excuse for it,and this includes religious and social reasons.Together we can help stop this practice against children.
Valcourt, Greg—Canada Some education is long overdue for those that still support this travesty.
Van Auken, Peter—USA This is an important issue which has been ignored and not faced up to for too long. Defenseless children must be protected from the ignorance of well-meaning parents who are misinformed or pressured into making the wrong medical choices for their children. Males must be protected from being mutilated against their will just as females are.
VAN DER ELZEN, RÉMI—Netherlands iT'S A TERRIBLE FORM OF MUTULATION , IF PEOPLE FOR WHAT EVER REASON WISH TO DO SUCH A THING IN THE NAME OF THEIR RELIGIOUS IDEAS THEN THEY AT THE LEAST SHOULD BE ADULTS.
Van der Mark, Bonnie—USA Everything in or on the human body was put there for a reason. Let us not tamper with perfection.
van der Wekken, Julie—USA There is no medical/ or otherwise reason for circumcision. The public needs to be educated about this. It needs to not become the norm for babies to be circumcisized.
van Litsenborgh, Anton—South Africa Leave as it is....as born with. It really is a must to be genitally integrated. GOD CREATED ALL MALES INTACT. THAT IS THE WAY WE SHOULD STAY. GENITAL MUTILATION OF CHILDREN MUST BE ERADICATED.
van Niekerk, Julie—South Africa Cruel and barbaric acts toward mankind. It is just another power control. Barbarism should now be eliminated from this earth. Pain inflicted to humans for religious believes are barbaric.
Van Velsor, Gary—USA Completely immoral to cut away any part of another person's body without their consultation.
Vanderlip, Brian—Canada Generally speaking, there are no justified reasons for mutilating the genitals.
Veary, Mindy—USA Circumcision is a cruel and barbaric procedure of genital mutilation that should no longer be practiced either religiously nor cosmetically
Viens, Nancy—USA It is barbaric.
Viers, AAHCC, Michelle—USA No one has the "right" to disrespect the human body by cutting off a male childs foreskin without their conscent. It is abusive and we, as a society would be outraged if this practice was being done to female children as it is in other cultures. Why is there not outrage when it is a male?
viets, david—USA Pink and Blue I'm sorry that I was ingnorant when I was growing up, I'm sorrier that my society was more ignorant still. I my parents had only known... I wouldn't be upset about what was taken from me at birth. At first I didn't care. What did I know? I didn't know what I was missing. Now I know... I have learned a lot. And nowI am waiting for my culture and my sociey to catch up. In the meantime I am restoring; To reclaim a part of me lost so long ago... to a baby boy so long ago. And my spirit sees a little joy in every day; New growth of me new skin, now pink! Reclaimed the wounded boy Now proud in new found joy. david r viets dec. 2004
von Schoening, Andrea—Canada I support that nothing should be done to anyone's body, ever, without their willing permission, that is, they want it. I feel SO SAD about the victims of genital mutilation.
Voskuil, Duane—USA American Philosophical Association and Catgut Acoustical Society Member We must stop the insanity of the genital mutilation of all children.
