Make no mistake, Gower has blocked me on Twitter. This may be because when he compared himself to Hunter s. Thompson I said he was not Hunter S. Thompsons drug induced anal shit squirting. Or when I said he was not a ‘political journalist’ now but a useless tool. Or when I posted this photo which I stole from someone on Twitter and stated this boy was actually fuckable. Make no mistake, Gower is not a journalists anus.
Stop mutilating your children, you do not own their bodies. Vile practice. hate the inference that as they do not die, it isn’t all bad.
At least eight young boys have been admitted to Starship Hospital in recent weeks with severe infections from what’s being called “backyard circumcisions”.
The Auckland District Health Board (ADHB) confirmed to 3 News eight boys, believed to be between the ages of eight and 14, have been admitted to Starship with infections.
A spokesperson from Counties Manukau District Health Board said they were aware of at least 10 cases in the area, but several of those may have been referred to Starship.
Pacific Medical Association president Dr Kiki Maoate says the cases are culturally related, and it’s likely the families of the children involved brought someone from the Pacific Islands to perform the procedures.
“It’s not the first time something has occurred like this,” says Dr Maoate.
Although ADHB doesn’t know who is responsible for the illegal practice, Dr Maoate believes cost is one of the driving factors families turn to backyard circumcisions.
“Cost is probably the biggest factor,” he says.
For a circumcision under general anaesthetic, where the child is put to sleep, it would cost around $2000. If the child is given local anaesthetic, which is common with older kids, it would cost around $300-500.
Dr Maoate says although it’s rare for children to die from circumcision complications, those who have been admitted to Starship have had severe infections and bleeding.
Does this relate to……………..Has this ever happened before? What justifies ‘super name suppression?
I wonder why, thought nobody.
