This excellent documentary staff, both in English and Dutch with English subtitles, follows Dutch journalist / filmmaker Michael Schaap as he learns from his own mother interviews, circumcision, politicians, Jews, Muslims, a man restored British and American activists.

From the author: “I am a born Dutch male who came to Canada in 1981. In most European countries, circumcisions are performed only for religious reasons.

In 1989 I married a Canadian girl very well and we had our first child in February 1992. Although my wife had not seen a circumcised penis until he married me, he realized that circumcision without medical reason was a form of abuse.

There have been some comments from my in-laws, but after talking with them also realized that there was no reason for our son to be circumcised or indeed any child without medical necessity was not.

December 1992 adopted a son and one of the first questions we asked was, “do you want to be circumcised?” Of course our answer was no.

The point of view on circumcision worlds has to change. Most people admit to amputate the foreskin of the clitoris in women is an abuse. There is no difference in the amputation of the glans cover boys.

Thank you and please continue to raise awareness about involuntary circumcision.“
