The Truth About Circumcision: Ending Male Genital Mutilation + Protecting Infant Innocence | Eric Clopper

Wellness + Wisdom | Episode 628

Why is circumcision leaving an imprint on boys for the rest of their lives?

Eric Clopper | The Truth About Circumcision: Ending Male Genital Mutilation + Reclaiming Fetal InnocenceEric Clopper, Leading Attorney and Activist in the movement to protect children from genital mutilation, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom Podcast, episode 628, to explain why male circumcision is genital mutilation and should be considered child abuse, why the U.S. must expand the laws to protect both male and female children from genital mutilation, and how his law firm, CLOPPER LAW, is planning to launch historic constitutional challenges to ensure that ALL children are protected.

“The first sexual experience of most American and Jewish men is that they are sexually stimulated and then they feel the worst pain that they will probably feel in their entire life, as the most erogenous part of their body is crushed and amputated. It is not only an active mutilation of the penis, but it also causes an incredible myriad of complications which can include the loss of the entire penis or the death of the child.” – Eric Clopper

Power Quotes From The Show

Masturbation Prevention

“John Harvey Kellogg said we need to circumcise our kids to prevent self-abuse, aka masturbation, so the child forever associates sexual pleasure with pain.”Eric Clopper

Our Swords Are Unsheathed

“As men, our swords are unsheathed. We're always irritated and ready for war. If you look at the Middle East, that's almost an entire genital mutilating area and they're the ones in chronic wars. Because if you abuse or inflict violence on your men, you're going to damage these individuals and they will in turn be damaged and damage others, including women.”Eric Clopper

Metzitzah B'peh

“Before the 1800s, a mohel would use his sharpened fingernails to shred the foreskin off of a child and some of the babies would bleed out and die. So rabbis instituted a new practice called Metzitzah B'peh sucking, which is after they'd shred the infant's genitals, they would suck on the bleeding penis. The thought behind it was if you get a cut, you may suck on it to stop it bleeding. But it seems overtly sexual to me to perform bloody fellatio on an infant. It's horrific, it's disgusting, and it spreads diseases and kills infants.”Eric Clopper
