      | 258 |      LEAD PLAINTIFF: gburlin      Case Filed: 2008-04-16
Case Summary:
1 million infant boys are sexually tortured and mutilated each year in the U.S. This is a violation of their human rights.

Case Detail:
Any man that was circumcised is due reparations for the lost sexual functioning he inevitably suffered since circumcision removes the most sensitive part of the penis.

Case Details:

A piece of my body was stolen from me by force, my foreskin. I cried and screamed and told them I did not want it done, but they did it anyhow. I said this in the only language I knew at the time. I was take advantage of by humans who had a status as authority. I feel like the children who have been molested or raped by priests, police, doctors. I feel less than normal, less than worthy of succeeding. Doomed to failure. My spirit has been broken, I am not the man I should have been. I have not let a happy life due to this. I was once happy those first few hours, and now I suffer a life of impending torment. When will they come after me again? What piece of me will they take next time? An arm, a leg , my eyes? what excuse will they use? It's for your own good, you don't need it anyway, it'll just get infected and we'll have to cut it off so lets just do it now.

(I have been a little dramatic, but there is lots of truth in this, sorry I'm a poet , can't help it.)

i would like $10,000 / day of my life that I don't have my foreskin. Adjust for inflation.

Case Details:
I was circumcised which is a horribly traumatizing infliction of pain and terror on a young boy. It left me mentally, emotionally and physically scarred. I have scars on my manhood from a poor circumcision and there is no way to return my manhood to its original unaltered state. I blame my circumcision for my trust issues, my emotional issues and my lack of self confidence with my manhood due to its unnatural and altered appearance.

Case Details:
Massive emotional distress and physical injury. Doctors mutilated my body at birth without the consent of either of my parents. My mother informed me that directly one day after my birth they took me into a room and came back with the procedure done. It has caused great emotional harm and has drastically affected my ability during intercourse. Not because of function but rather due to depressed and ill when I look at my own genitalia. It is upsets me in a number of different ways: 1. Knowing that someone exists in this world who robbed me of something some integral to my body. 2. The depressing feeling of having no choice in the matter. 3. Going to the bathroom is a calamitous experience because I am forced to look at my own mutilation.

I desperately wish to sue the pediatrician who performed such injurious procedures upon my person without my consent. I not only wish to seek compensation for the damages incurred but to seek criminal charges upon that person. I hope that individuals involved will all be charged with criminal conspiracy charges and will spend the rest of their natural born lives rotting in a cell.

Case Details:
I was born a healthy baby boy in Holy Name Hospital, Teaneck, NJ hospital in 1974. Without my consent and without my parents' informed consent, the doctor who delivered me performed a 19th century surgical operation on me that has no medical indication and is injurious to infants and children. It is euphemistically referred to as "routine infant circumcision".

This is what routine infant circumcision surgery did to my body:
Amputation of over 50% of my foreskin and loss of its integral functions, namely:
Protection of the glans penis, an internal organ.
Coverage of the shaft of the elongated, erect penis.
Provision of most of the nerves for sexual response (the ridged bands on the inner lining of the foreskin).
Amputation of my frenulum
Scar on my penis
Meatal Stenosis – The exposure of my unprotected glans penis to the ammonia in urine-soaked diapers may have been the cause. However, ischemia of the glans penis, caused by the possible severing of the frenular artery at circumcision, may be the etiologic factor. A meatotomy, to open the urethra, was performed on me at age 5 to correct this circumcision complication. Recovery from this corrective surgery was painful and traumatic and left me with a urination problem (spraying) and a scar on the tip of my penis.
Loss of sexual sensitivity - 15+/- cell layer increase in thickness of surface of glans penis due to keratinization.
Progressive loss of glans sensitivity.
Curving of my penis during erection, due to removal of too much foreskin.
Pubic hair on my penile shaft during erection, due to removal of too much foreskin.
Removal of too much skin for a comfortable erection.
Large varicose veins on my penis.
Reduced size of my penis.

Psychologically, this surgery caused me to have low body image throughout adolescence and early adulthood and to completely avoid relationships with women during that time period.

Case Details:
Having a natural part of my body stripped away from me as a helpless infant has caused me frustration during intercourse causing lack of ability to perform at various times. Even during times of acceptable performance I still do not achieve the level of performance I should expect from a un mutilated body. I am forced daily to observe an incomplete piece of my body which was destroyed by a religious belief against my will and a belief of a natural progression of human nature

Case Details:
Along with the fact that, I, as a parent, was never informed of the possible negative outcomes of this procedure, including death and disfigurement, prior to consenting to have my son circumcised, I was also not aware there there was no medical necessity to have it performed.

This procedure has caused my child disfigurement and impairment, although in good faith and intention by his parents, by medical professionals. The action was taken and executed with reckless abandon and negligently performed, constituting an action that is absent redress in criminal court, nonetheless, subject to redress in a civil one.

I am claiming damages in the sum of one million dollars for pain, suffering, and neglect due to injuries, and in-care-of my minor child, herein described.

Case Details:
Like millions of North Americans, I was circumcised without my consent in the days following my birth. Medical and psychological research now clearly indicate that the invasive and intensely painful process of perinatal circumcision is a cause of trauma, which has negatively impacted my self-esteem, body image, and sexual function. I also suffer from the personality disorder alexithymia, which has been linked to circumcision and the resulting trauma-induced emotional dissociation.

Case Details:
When I started having sex I noticed it took me a long time to get to ejaculation...I thought I was a sex god...but now at just 31 I can't even ejaculate during intercourse because my penis is so insensitive. So much for wanting to have more kids with my wife. Also seeing pictures of what scarring looks like I now feel embarrassed to be naked in front if other men for something I always thought was normal.

Case Details:
I have been deeply ashamed of my penis and afraid of sexual intimacy my entire life. My penis does not look normal (curved, hairy shaft, other disfigurements). I have always had difficulty reaching orgasm with the few lovers in my life because of decreased sensitivity and psychological issues.

I was sexually abused by sadistically humiliating semi-public gang rape in first grade by fifth and sixth grade boys while girls watched and laughed because my penis was different from theirs. I was shamed humiliated and accused of being a dirty homosexual queer boy for choosing not to "play doctor" simply because I was ashamed of my penis. I have had an abnormal and very unsatisfactory sex life. I believe my circumcision and the sexual abuse that followed directly and indirectly from that circumcision have prevented me from from having any kind of normal love life and denied me any chance at starting a family.

I am forty-five years old and I have had three girlfriends. None of my relationships have lasted more than eight months. I have not had a girlfriend or lover in over twenty years. The last lover I had ridiculed my abnormal penis, told the man she left me for about it, and he ridiculed my abnormal penis. They then publicly, in front of all my friends, further ridiculed my abnormal penis while laughing together about it.

Every major problem in my life (PTSD, Major Depression with Psychosis, Social Phobia, Love Phobia, deep fear of intimacy, sexual self-hate) can be directly or indirectly traced to my circumcision. I consider it deeply traumatizing sexual abuse. I know that victims of traumatizing abuse tend to be re-victimized repeatedly throughout their lives by a mechanism that is not well understood.

I believe I understand that mechanism but it would sound crazy to most ordinary people. I believe boys who were circumcised as infants are far more likely to experience sexual abuse later in their lives for the same reason that other children who have suffered traumatizing abuse tend to be victimized again and again. I invite some psychiatrist, psychologist, or other 'expert witness' to compile these statistics. I believe that deeply repressed self-blaming shameful unhealed memories of traumatic abuse live in that part of the mind where 'The Secret', 'Law of Attraction', manifest 'Belief into Being' to influence our lives with the power of faith. I believe that deeply repressed traumatic sexual abuse creates a memory deep inside where victims essentially pray to God 24/7 out of fear and self-hate for similar parallel abuse to happen again. I know that anybody who has a suppressed memory of traumatic abuse from an early age that carries any element of self-blame, fear, and sense of impotent helplessness will have a statistically significant greater chance of experiencing similar parallel abuse and nobody in the mainstream psychological or psychiatric community knows why.

I know why because of what happened to me. I know that some circumcised boys have had this happen. I believe that my psychology was damaged by infant circumcision in such a way that my deepest secret heart called deeply traumatizing sexual and psycho-emotional abuse centered on ridicule of my deformed, dirty, and inadequate penis, completely and publicly emasculating me, giving me the sense that it was all my own fault because my penis in particular and sex when I am involved are dirty and should be cut off. I even have unwanted fantasies and nightmares of voluntarily cutting off my own penis to be rid of its horrible curse.

I beg somebody to examine case studies -cross index the statistics. I can almost promise that the incidence of traumatic sexual abuse among boys circumcised as infants will be significantly higher than among uncircumcised boys and boys circumcised by rabbis and imams in legitimate religious rites.
Somebody needs to do this research.

I cannot pay a lawyer until the social security administration approves my disability. However, I offer this advice free of charge. Dig into case studies of boys who have suffered deeply traumatizing sexual abuse. Count how many of them were circumcised versus how many were not. See what the math says. Use those statistics in your case.

Involuntary infant circumcision is psycho-sexual torture and amounts to brutal sadistic child molestation for all psychological purposes. There is no sum of money in this world that can compensate me for what this rationalized abuse has done to me.

I consider infant circumcision as inflicted upon myself and others of my generation to be a crime against humanity for which no retributive justice is sufficient. I would rather have developed some necrotic infection of the penis that required amputation than to have been victimized in this way under the pretense that circumcision somehow slightly reduces the odds of some kind of health problems. The psychological harm is that dire.

If a traumatic experience of sexual abuse in circumcision manifests the phenomena of repetitive parallel re-victimization as I know mine did in others -then involuntary infant circumcision in America is possibly the single cruelest and most harmful sadistic human rights abuse on planet Earth. I would very much like to participate in any legal action that ends this barbaric practice -even if I do not personally receive a dime in compensation.

Infant circumcision by doctors without clear and present medical immediate medical reason should be as illegal as aggravated violent rape of a child with torture and mutilation. I am certain there is no shortage of psychologists and psychiatrists who would agree.

Including surgery. I've know all my life that the knife that raped me also took my soul. I've seen psychiatrists and urologists trying to figure out why I'm pefectly normal in every aspect of my life except for the deformed penis I have as a result of the rape I suffered.

Case Details:
I was circumcised at around 10 years old. Following up to the final surgery, the pediatrician forced my foreskin back on two occasions, which caused painful adhesions both times. He finally prescribed circumcision, which although I was under general anaesthesia, was extremely painful to recover from, and very embarrassing. I have not as of yet taken legal action because of the embarrassment surrounding the issue, but I have a strong reason to believe that I (among others) was a victim to a bad doctor. I was a late Bloomer in almost every way, but I believe the doctor decided to go against his better judgement and thought it was okay to violate my body.
I have a very strong case against him, but until now, I've been too embarrassed to take legal action.

Upon being born in 1985, I was subjected to routine penile reduction surgery preformed by the pediatrician Terence Neff, M.D. of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho without valid 'informed consent' or 'medical necessity'. Should I also mention that I suffer from a hirsute 'shaft' (esp. when my member is erect), wound unevenness, and penoscrotal 'webbing'--which itself requires urological surgery to correct--etc.? For it is true: I do.

Case Details:
My parents were not properly informed of risks or benefits of procedure. My mother was not informed that circumcision could cause difficulties in breastfeeding. My mother was not made aware that I had a hole in my heart that was not yet closed at the time I was circumcised. As a result I was unable to breastfeed, lost of sensitivity to my penis, developed poor body image related to being circumcision when all other boys I knew were not. I may have a higher alexithymia score because of my circumcision.

Case Details:
I cannot remember the actual procedure, however I cannot believe the incompetence of the medical industry. I feel betrayed and angered by what has been done to me. Worst of all, when I try to confront my parents about it, they act as though they are offended by me speaking up for myself. They told me that I am the one who is messed up in the head, however I pointed out to them that I was the only one in the room who was not guilty of baby mutilation. I am sick of being laughed at for being angry that a religious practice (which I abhor) has caused me to undergo physical and psychological trauma since birth. Please hold all practitioners of circumcision accountable for their insidious actions.

Case Details:
On September 23rd, 1974, less than 36hrs after my birth, I became the victim of Genital Mutilation. In violation of his Hippocratic Oath, Calvin C. Clark, MD cut off a healthy, functional part of my most sensitive tissue without my consent, at Vancouver Memorial Hospital. The screams haunt me every day and night. The scar reaches up into my throat and has actually deformed my lumbosacral spine. I suffered from urinary incontinence, soiling my bed nightly throughout my childhood. The emotions of Fear and Lust are so interwoven together in me that I have difficulty maintaining healthy relationships with women. I suffer from bouts of deep, even suicidal depression. My internal monologue is filled with themes of deserving punishment. At my most perfect and vulnerable, I was violated and permanently harmed by those I most trusted, ostensibly so that I would not feel different when I saw the mutilated penises of other boys. THIS MUST STOP!

Case Details:

I'm 25 years old and was mutilated at birth. I've experienced lots of pain when my penis head rubs against things, and now, sex is only rewarding at the end. My mother was lied to by the Dr. that cut me. She was told that it would keep me clean and it was what everyone did for the betterment of their child. I've only looked into what circumcision was this year, now that I'm starting to feel less and less happy about sex. If I were older when I was being cut, I would have ran, I would never have gotten into the car with my mother to go to the hospital, I would have fought until I died. Now, I sometimes cry over what was done to me. I feel like a shell, empty, unwilling to share myself with anyone because I am not whole. I imagine this is how it feels when someone has lost a leg or other limb. Tho I couldn't feel it when I was being cut, I can feel it now, in my mind, stomach, heart... I hate that this was done to me, and sometimes hate myself for still being alive.

I want $1,000,000, enough to fun research into foreskin regeneration and to pay for my own procedure.

Case Details:
I was circumcised at birth, a procedure I never would have agreed to, one that is barbaric, unnecessary, unjustified, and done without my lawful consent. If I could, I would have fought the "doctor" back with a blunt object. But I couldn't, because I was a baby being held down, forced to endure pain and dismemberment of the genitals. My Mother even allowed them to make a video of it, to teach other doctors how to do this disgusting procedure, a snuff film. The doctors never disclosed the terrible effects it would have, and my Father feels terrible about it. The law protects females from having their genitals mutilated so that their clitoris is constantly exposed, why am I not also protected of this basic right?

I have a hard time enjoying sex or masturbation at all. It is usually an unenjoyable and disturbing experience, sometimes even painful. If the glands of my penis are touched at all during stimulation, they just feel irritated and the sensation is completely ruined, especially during orgasm. This effects me beyond the act of stimulation, I feel like less of a man and I feel like I am not whole, both in my body an my desired love life. It also bothers me in my daily routine, The glands are so dry and exposed it causes a constant feeling of irritation. Wearing jeans is extremely uncomfortable. The most important part of my body has been destroyed of it's function and sense of well being. I would have rather they cut out an eye or a hand, and I would trade if I could.

I am gay and every time I see an uncircumcised penis or a depiction of one I feel knots in my stomach and I want to die, because it reminds me of what was done to me. I see the moist, sensitive glands that I cannot have, the enjoyment I cannot have, the feeling of the foreskin rolling over the glands. I take showers with the lights off so that I do not have to look at my own penis. Having a relationship with another person is very important to me, but I feel no motivation to have one because I cannot enjoy it in the beautiful way i should be able to. I feel depressed about this every day. I sometimes feel like they are still cutting it off of me, even though I have no memory of it. I feel as though I have been raped, and have felt suicidal (to the extent of planing out a suicide note, with my circumcision as the first reason listed). My anger and depression are out of control, causing me to break things in the house. My only hope was presented when I learned of the Foregen project. Yet I am still depressed and anguished, since it will be years before the procedure becomes available.

I seek claim damages to cover the cost of my foregen procedure, so that I can get it done when it becomes available, for my emotional trauma, vastly diminished sex life, and the constant physical pain I have endured for 24 years. I will donate the vast majority, if not all, of the money not needed for the procedure cost to the foregen project. I care only about giving people their rights, not taking them away. My foreskin was not an optional part of my body, it was a very necessary part of the most private, sensitive, and sacred part of my body. It's my penis, not a doctor's, not my parents', mine.

Please contact me, I need help.

Case Details:
If you were circumcised as an infant or minor, but you feel that would have never have agreed to such a procedure, you are a victim. You were only circumcised because you couldn’t fight back.
Many men have been either too ashamed or unaware of what was done to them to confront the issue. The advocates of circumcision have counted on that ignorance and shame for decades.

By entering your information into our victims database, Intaction.org will be able to finally document the extent of this human rights abuse.

Case Details:
Well, I was circumcised when I saw 6 years old, because my pediatrician was married to a surgeon, and scolded my mother for not having it done at birth, stating that it would cause problems and would be more painful in adulthood. she also said that I had an infection; after all my mom saw her because touched myself a lot. Of course it had just retracted, and I was learning a new part of my body, which is why I grabbed myself a lot. In fact, everything that Dr. Guanzom told my mother was a lie. The couple who circumcised me, by the way, was a Filipino transplant, and in the Phillipines it's done as a religious rite - usually around eight years of age publically without anisthetic. I did receive anisthetic, as I recall counting sixteen needles of localised anisthetic going in, as my wrists were strapped down to my sides. I remember the feeling of pulling and cold hands. I remember them telling me this was necessary, and for my own good. I remember a nurse - or my mother - being in the room. I remember a sheet laying over my chest with my shirt pulled up, so i could not see what was being done to me. I remember a bright lamp overhead, and I could feel its warmth on my tummy, and those cold hands. I can hear him still setting down his tools and can still feel the now itchy and painful rubbing with his gauze. I remember feeling him stitch on a piece of gauze that would fall off on its own. I remember all the while thinking that I was bad and dirty, because I touched my privates - that this was my punishment - and that I was unprotected from these people. I remember being and then dying - right there on the table. I remember leaving my own self and trying to run away, wishing I were really dead. I remember not being able to move, except pressing my fingers into my thumbs, over and over and over and over. I remember being paralyzed and unable to speak. My own breathing felt foreign to me, like it was some other poy boy lying on that table (This trauma-induced dissociation has since created a very debilitating Dissociative Disorder, one which now explains why I have never questioned my own circumcision or piece together any of its effects, until this past year.). I remember when Mr. Guanzom was done, with those thick glasses, waving the bloody organ in my face and saying in his accent and surprisingly friendly yet evil grin, "you don't still want this, do you? this is dirty," then watching him throw it away." I remember thinking I had learned my lesson, because he was going to give it back. After all my grandma could steal my nose and put it back, even though I always knew it was her thumb - it must have been true. I remember for days not speaking, spending a lot of time in the bathroom, just ... staring and trying to figure out this thing. "maybe mommie wanted another girl." i later thought I was a girl and a boy and mommy wanted to fix me. I remember that I could pull the skin from my scrotum over myself now, but it wouldn't stay put, and it itched and burned really bad. Within a couple days it got really red and I got really sick. I remember not being able to bend over to tie my shoes because I hurt so bad. I remember having a dream where I went shopping with my grandma for body parts; they were in jars at a special store - arms, legs. And I remember not being able to sleep with my arms or legs hanging off the bed, because the monstor under my bed was going to chop them off, right where the bed ends at a perfect angle. I had to buy new parts at the store. I also remember having a dream about my little sister (who was born the year I was six) where she was standing at the edge of the river, and her head fell off where it had been sewn on. I can'`t even begin to explain what this did to me psychologically, as it's still tough for me to face that reality and be safe doing so; I had experiences when I was an adolescent where I was sure I had been molested as a child, like I had memories of memories, and just a feeling. This was perfect to me because it explained why I was gay (something I only fully accepted my third year of college); I studied self-hypnosis, assured that I would uncover it and face it, and I would be healed. This was shortly after my mother's fiance was killed in a car accident who I intended to come out to; when he died I felt like maybe I was sick and God hated me, so I must repent from who I am and change. When I started to ask questions and try to remember what happened, I did not once consider circumcision as the culprit (likely because denial was the very psychological coping mechanism caused by my dissociation), and honestly it's only been recently that I've really began to grasp that. What this has done to me psychologically I cannot explain in detail, but I do suggest for anyone reading to check out sidran.org as a website.

Neither did I only recognize very recently that the Dr. made a huge mistake, even in pretending that circumcison is a viable option. I'd known that there was a knot that I could feel at my circumcision scar when erect since I was a teenager, but I always assumed it was normal. I had no idea that the reason my penis was hairy (which I assumed to be normal) was that the Dr. removed ALL of the skin from my penis, and stitching the site up with skin pulled up from my abdomen on the top and sides and my scrotum on the bottom. I did not know that the reason the glans never grew with the rest; in fact, there's an obvious shrinking at the circ scar forward, was because he cut away all my veins and bloodflow, that the knot was likely a blunging vessel that had been reverted back to itself. I didn't even know to question any of these things - always hearing that 'penises come in all varieties and shapes - until the loss of sensation became almost complete very recently, due to gradual keratinazation the the tightness of the pulls. I had never noticed the stretch marks on the top sides. I thought everyone's testicles went all the way up to where the skin got lighter (the circ scar) because that entire side of the shaft was engulfed in the scrotum.

I thought all men had to tweeze all the hairs all over their penis bending over the toilet several times a week to look smooth, just like women shaved their legs.

The reason I was sick afterwards was because I developed a bloodborne infection, and I almost died. That infection did cause a cross reactivity immunologically, and hence a perpetual autoimmune response. I began staggering shortly afterwards, and developed into a movement disorder like tourettes combined with choreoathetosis, mostly the latter, along with severe ocd, which I often got in trouble for, always told I was faking it - even still actually. Now it's gotten so severe that I'm too disabled to even walk through a doorway at times without taking hours and hurting. My joints are arthritic. I've gotten to see all of my dreams pass me by because I am so disabled. No more studying abroad in Pyat*****k, learning ***etian, and interning with the DIA. No more joining the AF as a backup plan, as a cryptolinguist. Hell, I can't even work a basic job. I'm never going to be a martial artist, or even excercise the way I want to, which is very important to me. I'm in pain every day, constanly reminded every time I use the bathroom, or even sit in a room alone what was robbed from me. Not just a piece of skin, but my life, not just my life, my self. Lately I've been noticing that I can't do the things mentally that I could just a year ago, and even then I was inferior to myself as a child - far inferior. 3d spatial reasoning is lost on me now, calculus not nearly as exciting, forgetting simple words, not recognizing people that have known me for years - all neurological damage. My sense of smell has actually grown a lot since my last infection/attack, which is strange. I can't even sit up straight for more than a few seconds without my back and neck being in severe pain.

Case Details:
I was circumcised at birth. At the age of 22 I learned about what circumcision is and asked my mother and father about mine. My dad never knew anything about it and just thought it was "what you do". My mother asked the pediatrician before I was cut "what is the purpose", "is it necessary", "does the foreskin have any purpose" and the doctor simply told her "no". He said "the foreskin is useless and will only cause him problems". So like any good mother she had me cut because she thought it was the right thing to do. Now that I have educated myself on this subject and have enlightened my parents both of them feel terrible about it. My mother has even cried over it. My purpose in all of this was not at all to upset or blame my parents. They did what they were told to do by my pediatrician. My purpose is to fight back at the one who harmed me, harmed my whole family. I want to fight back at the doctors who lied to my parents and to millions of parents across this country. Circumcision should be outlawed. As a result I am not normal now. I long for my missing foreskin. Laugh all you want but to me its serious. I have mental disstress from this. I call my circumcision scar the "scar of shame". I am embarrassed that I am cut, I feel like less of a man. A piece of me is missing, I am not happy about this. Why couldn't I have just been left alone??? I want what was taken from me at birth against my will. My penis is smaller, has drastically less sensativity and it is uncomfortable. All day long the head of my penis rubs on my underwear and it hurts. Why was this done again??? What are the benefits??? Also its interesting that I have had 3 UTI's in my life and i'm circumcised. I am a very clean person, I shower twice a day. I'm not seeing any of the so called benefits from being cut.And the disfigurement of my penis.

Case Details:
I'm a victim of genital mutilation. It made permanent changes to my body, sexuality and mind. I was thrust into sexual perversion as I sought out retribution against women and sought out in vain the real feeling of sexual contact. Due to the mutilation occurring on private parts, the whole issue was hidden for two decades. After finally realizing it, I had to undertake the daunting task of emotional healing. It took another ten years before I could unravel the psychological mess that was created by this sadistic, evil act on my infant body. I am now restoring what little can be restored, a process which usually fails and can take up to ten years of constant care and work. If successful, I can only regain a small portion of what was lost.

I am requesting ten million dollars in physical and emotional damage for this unspeakably cruel treatment.

Case Details:
Shortly after I was born in 1967, I was circumcised (sexually mutilated). This action reduced the sensitivity and responsiveness of my reproductive organs and rendered important parts of their functioning inoperative, resulting in a diminishing of my quality of life and negative psychological effects that were entirely avoidable.

The action was done without my consent and was cruel and usual and hateful. Since it resulted in permanent disfiguring and functional impairment of an important part of my body, its execution exceeded the rights of my parents to mandate the process, lawful though it was at the time and remains so, and requested nonetheless in good faith by them.

The actual agent of action, the hospital in question (_____), however, undertook this procedure without disclosing the nature and impact of this procedure to my parents. In addition, its behavior with regard to the procedure was reckless, also with a state of negligent indifference being present, together constituting an action and that is, absent redress in criminal courts, nonetheless subject to redress in a civil one.

I claim damages of $11 million for pain and suffering compensation due to the injuries herein described.

Case Details:
In 1990 at a hospital in Crawfordsville, Indiana some stupid doctor took away at least half of the nerves responsible for my sexual satisfaction. I don't know if my mom consented or not but who cares the doctor I'm sure failed to mention that he was butchering me for life all for a couple extra bucks and maybe a claim of "cleanliness". BS! Intact men have no problem cleaning, but I have have an incomplete penis. Girls aren't allowed to have their genitals cut yet I was. At birth I had less Human Rights than girls. After finding out about this recently, I have never felt more depressed in my life, and I have had my share of rough times, but am still a very optimistic person. I looked to see if something can be done and bam! I found foreskin-restoration.net and foregen.org to give me hope! they are researching how to regrow a foreskin COMPLETELY. They still need money to do their clinical trial. The doctor who genitally mutilated me should be held financially responsible for my suffering and have to pay to have my foreskin regrown when the technology soon becomes available. But mainly, If every doctor that performed these terrible operations had to donate to the foregen. org fund, then we could make much quicker progress.

Case Details:
I was circumcised at birth without my consent. I didn't even know I was circumcised until I was 16 years old and at that time I didn't have any idea how it would affect me today. The scar I have caused me to be afraid to let anyone see it and my cracked glands have barely any feeling in them. emotionally I have to deal with being circumcised every day. I feel like I am less of a man and find it hard making connections with other men because of this. I am angry, sad and disgusted with my circumcision and am to the point where I have started restoration of my foreskin in hopes that the cosmetic aspect will allow me to feel at least a little more whole, a little more human.

Case Details:
On 22 October, 1962, I was born and then "circumcised" involuntarily. Under the "Reason to Operate", listed on the consent form, were the words "Live Birth". This is not a medical condition warranting "circumcision". In fact, there were none then, now, nor will there ever be a reason to "circumcise" anyone. Nothing about my natural penis was deformed, damaged, or diseased, and these are the criteria for a legitimate "Reason to Operate". It is illegal to perform an operation without consent from the patient (not the parent), or without the medical conditions of the aforemetioned. I could go on about what it did to my body, but either way that's irrelevant.

Regardless of what it did, it was then and now technically illegal. I therefore hold them, Norman Regional Hospital and the estate of Dr. Donald Dycus, accountable and negligent in their act, and claim 100 million dollars in damages and disfigurement, most of which is to be donated to the various organisations to stop the practice of involuntary male genital mutilation, after attorney's fees have been paid.

Case Details:
Like all of the men on this class action I was mutilated as a baby for no other reason but a common medical practice in the united states.There was no medical reason why I should have had the most sensitive part of my body cut off for the monetery benefit of the doctor. Because of this I suffer loss of sensetivity and self asteam along with phycological and emotional distress to the point where im trying to restore what was stolen from me. I can't even put a dollar amount on the value I have lost because i can never buy back what was taken from me. As an american citizen I can not even fathom how this practice is still leagal for any reason unless it's for a dire health issue. Laws need to be changed, and the goverment that allowed this to happen to me needs to be held accountable and stop this brutal practice for good.

I have suffered the desensitizing effects of circumcision to my penis. Circumcision has no medical benefits and about 85% of the World's men are NOT circumcised. They do just fine. I have suffered not only physically, but also mentally, knowing that part of my body was cut off, mutilated, without my consent.

Case Details:
I was born in Canada on 1979 with a perfect penis and it was mutilated right after I was born. I experienced the first horrible result of being cut when I was 5 years old in kindergarden class. I was going to the washroom when all of a sudden I was urinating blood it was a shock to say the least. I remember that day like it was yesterday. Studies have indicated that male circumcision contributes to the development of urethral stricture. In Van Howe's study, all cases of meatal stenosis were among circumcised boys. When the meatus is not covered by the foreskin, it can rub against urine soaked diapers resulting in inflammation and mechanical trauma. Meatal stenosis may also be caused by ischemia resulting from damage to the frenular artery during circumcision. So I had to endure another brutal surgery on my penis to correct the problem which left me with a mutilated urethra to top it all off!!! My memories of that procedure aren't pleasant.

The glans (penile head) is normally an internal organ protected by the moist mucosal tissue of the prepuce (foreskin). Without the foreskin, the glans is exposed to the outer environment (air, soap, clothing, sun, etc.). The glans dries out and develops several extra layers of skin (keratinization). Compare the dry, cracked appearance of the glans of a circumcised penis with the moist mucosal end of the glans of an intact penis. The unnatural dryness of the circumcised penis can cause abrasion and bleeding during sex, whereas the moistness of the intact penis makes sex more comfortable, especially during penetration. For women with circumcised male partners, the problem of 'vaginal dryness' during sex may also be partly attributable to the unnatural dryness of the circumcised penis.

Besides removing the densely nerve-laden foreskin, circumcision removes 50% of the penile shaft skin and associated nerve endings. The exposed glans then keratinizes, causing further loss of sensation. Many circumcised men in the Awakenings survey reported that desensitization caused them to abandon or bypass the subtler pleasures of genital foreplay in favor of immediate intercourse, which would offer them greater stimulation. They often hurried through intercourse, however — often needing extraordinary and sometimes violent thrusting — to obtain sufficient stimulation for both pleasure and orgasm. Other men reported frequent reliance on behaviors offering more stimulation than vaginal sex (e.g., oral sex, anal sex or masturbation) or compensating for diminished quality of sexual response with quantity (sexual compulsivity).

Imagine how different female sexual response would be if the clitoral hood (female foreskin) and the labia were removed. Exposure of the clitoris to the constant effects of the outer environment would approximate the effects of male circumcision.

Therefore since circumsicing a femal is illeagal in Canada under the Canadian Criminal Code a doctor can be charged with aggrivated assault but, males aren't coverd by this law. Any doctor who preforms a circumcision in Canada (male or female) should be charged with aggrivated assault. Its simple logic.

I think I deserve a settlement of at least 10 million for pain and suffering. Oh one last thing, I have to wear a condom with every woman I'm with and not because of disease its because of the hair on the shaft of my penis due to the mutilation. The friction caused by the hair and lack of gliding action is painful for the woman. Sadly I have learned this on my own many times.

I was circumcised at birth and have a 1/2" high scar that goes around the entire circumference of my penis. I have never experienced satisfactory sex because my penis lacks much sensation.

Sex is essential for a human's well-being, but I am not able to enjoy it because of my lack of sensation. This has killed my self-esteem and has made me withdrawn from society. I have a hard time seeking gainful employment or form close relationships with people because of my lack of self-esteem caused by the circumcision.

The scar that circumscribes my penis is unsightly and is a result of an necessary medical procedure. Moreover, the bottom of my penis has extra bunched up skin that looks unsightly and disfiguring. Couple the disfigurement and lack sensation, and you can see how physiologically traumatized I am.

Case Details:
I was brutally tortured as I was circumcised without anesthetic as an Infant.

I have never experienced an orgasm via vaginal intercourse as a result of Rose De Lima Hospital brutally circumcising me as an Infant.

I am in a constant state of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I experience nightmares weekly in which I and or Baby Boys are circumcised.

The United States has allowed/promoted the circumcision of Baby Boys and Minors, honoring all others except the Rights of the Child and his Autonomy, His right to genital integrity.

I am on a mission to expose all circumcisers and their agendas.

Some years ago, death by hanging was instituted. I sincerely wish to see all circumcisers of all backgrounds hung until death. I write with complete sanity of mind.

Sincerely, Joe.
one of millions of victims of circumcisers.
Hang them all!

Case Details:
My first circumcision was considered 'incomplete', I feel that it was botched. I have a memory of waking up in the middle of the procedure and seeing/hearing my skin being cut, which haunts me to this day. Seeing any sharp objects makes me uneasy due to that.
I have indefinite discomfort and pain from the procedure dating to today (I am now 24). Sex can be rather painful and my skin is very sensitive to the point of being uncomfortable most of the time.

Case Details:
Psychological trama and feelings of violation from the permanent damage resulting from my circumcision. Had I been raped by my local priest in the catholic church and subject to fallatio and/or some form of sodomy, the damage would not have been permanent physical damage and I'd have a claim against the church. I have both permanent physical damage and mental distress as the result of circumcision.

Case Details:
Shortly after I was born I was circumcised for non-theraputic reasons by doctors who ignored the fact my mothers was legally mentally retarded. When I discovered that I was circumcised at age 12 it caused immediate mental harm that has only gotten worse over time, also masturbating and having sex does not given any pleasure except when I orgasm.

Case Details:
I am angry like I have never felt before about anything in my entire life that this was done to me. I feel personally violated and sometimes the depression this has caused me is overwhelming to the point where I can't sleep or concentrate on my work. No longer can I look at or feel anything in my own penis without thinking of it as mutilated, unnatural, disfigured, incomplete etc. I did not consent to having my prepuce (foreskin) unnecessary removed and I would not have consented had it been my choice. This is going to affect me for the rest of my life and I want compensation for the damage that has been done to me (both physical and emotional).

Case Details:
When I was an infant and defenseless, I was subjected to a medically unnecessary surgery without anesthetic.

It is a crime to pull out an infant's fingernails without a good medical reason. It does not matter if you use sterilized instruments and antiseptics to do so safely. It is also a crime to defile an infant's sex organs in any way, even if you cause no injury. In either case, it does not matter that the infant will not consciously remember what was done to him when he grows up -- it's still a crime.

However, for some unfathomable reason, it is not a crime to injure a male infant's genitalia in a surgical procedure that is every bit as painful as having one's fingernails ripped out, and which leaves his genitalia permanently damaged in such a way as to permanently impede its natural function.

This senseless mutilation of infants must be stopped, and the individuals who perform such procedures must be made to pay for their crimes.

Case Details:
I grew up feeling deformed and afraid of girls, simply because I had a rather large skin bridge due to a botched circumcision. Constantly afraid to get intimate with women because they would see my deformity and laugh at me. I finally had the guts at 21 to show my father , of which freaked out and my parents immediately took me to the Dr to have it fixed. I had a recircumcision which now leaves me with a flap of skin on my penis. Dr called it a "natural french tickler and the women will love it" I did not agree.

Day after surgery was spent sleeping 23 out of 24 hours because of the pain pills. I quit taking them and the next way woke up with an erection that tore all the stitches. Scared me to death!

Eventually it all healed and I met my wife. However, I can never use condoms because orgasm is impossible. It takes me about an hour to achieve orgasm if not longer. Masturbation is at LEAST 30 minutes to achieve anything.

I still feel deformed and I'm now 31 years old and still can't achieve orgasm about half the time during sex.

Case Details:
Besides the obvious way in which circumcision removes the foreskin and it's 20,000 nerve endings, I also believe I was the victim of a botched circumcision.

Measuring on the left side of the shaft, from the base to just under the left side of the glans compared to measuring on the right side of the shaft, from the base to just under the right side of the glans, I am 5/8" shorter on the right side.

Taking a circumference measurement at the base, or mid-shaft I am approximately 5" in circumference. Taking a circumference measurement just under the edge of the glans, I am 3 3/4" in circumference.

I believe the doctor who performed the procedure on me cut into the right corpus cavernosa resulting in significant scarring which prevented my right corpus cavernosa from growing normally and fully expanding like it should and as a result I have a significant decrease in girth after the circumcision line as well as diminished length.

I have not yet obtained the medical opinion of a urologist on my abnormality nor have I yet obtained the medical records of my birth and circumcision from Middlesex Hospital where I was born.

My parents gave permission for my circumcision.

Case Details:
I was circumcised without my knowledge or consent as an infant. I am now beginning to learn the facts about what was destroyed without any valid medical indication or justification. "There are no valid medical indications for circumcision in the neonatal period." American Academy of Pediatrics, 1971. I am at this moment attempting a non-surgical stretching technique that will restore the foreskin to a certain extent and allow the glans to be covered which I'm hoping will improve it's sensitivity, but even this cannot entirely restore what was lost, particularly the nerve endings of my foreskin are gone forever. And it will take several months to be complete.

Physically I have lost an important part of my sexual response and sexual sensation. I will never be able to feel the complete sensations normal to sex because someone removed an organ critical to that experience. Emotionally I am outraged that someone would take this from me for no good medical reason whatsoever. Every time I look at my penis I am again reminded of the fact that a part of it has been chopped off. Do I not even have the right to decide what is done with my own body? This practice (circumcision) is barbaric and needs to end!

"There are no valid medical indications for circumcision in the neonatal period." American Academy of Pediatrics, 1971. Since the doctor who circumcised me is now long dead and gone, I ask that the AAP and American Medical Association be held responsible for my unnecessary genital mutilation and be required to pay me for the damages and losses and physical, mental and emotional suffering I have undergone because of their negligence and active advocacy of and participation in the heinous sex crimes and permanent genital mutilation they helped commit against me.

It is a horrible feeling to know that your body has been permanently scarred for as long as you can remember, and that it will never fully recover, no matter what you do. I can think of nothing that better matches the description "cruel and unusual" than strapping a baby boy to a table and forcibly removing part of his penis and then never even telling him a word about it, leaving him to piece together the truth about what happened to him many years later. I don't really want to sue to make money -- there is no sum of money that can undo the damage I have suffered, both physical and emotional. I just want to do everything I can to make sure that this never happens to anyone else.

Case Details:

Healing should be a service. The AMA, a professional labor union, has pushed medicine as a commercial venture, a greedy, vulturous business. As a result, medicine reinvented a bizarre, rare, social custom found only in the farthest reaches of the Australian outback, the African jungle, Arab people and Jews -- as a routine medical procedure performed on non-consenting infants at birth, which was and still is being sold to parents with the flimsiest of excuses: to look like dad, to fit in, to avoid teasing in the locker room, etc... and the AMA and its minions have willfully ignored the weakness of the 'research' that was used to justify this abusive practice. Only six men in 10,000 are circumcised in Europe for legitimate medical need.

If the AMA had focused its efforts on healing and serving, and if the US government had protected its very young citizens, neither would have ever allowed genital mutilation of any US citizen and I would not have had a vulvectomy, including a clitoridectomy in the 1950s in Kansas. My story can be read in the book, "The Rape of Innocence."

I have had lifelong PTSD. I know other women and men who also have been circumcised and who have PTSD. Our lives have been seriously affected by the practice of genital cutting. One surgeon said that clitoridectomy used to be 'big business'. Circumcision still is. Anything for a buck.

Well, it's time that the doctors paid us all back. They can reimburse us all and pay damages to us all, but I don't think they can ever replace the quality of life that was lost. So many years of anger and frustration, so many broken families and ruined relationships, so much loneliness... I think money may not be enough of a penalty for the ruination they have wrought.

The USA and the AMA have long been derelict in their duty to protect children who could not speak up for themselves -- and they still are derelict in their duty to protect their youngest and most vulnerable citizens. FGM has been illegal in the USA only since 1996. That law should protect all Americans, not just females. The medical system is out of control. It polices itself as well as a kid watching the candy jar.

I was circumcised shortly after birth (4/1/1981) without legitamate cause, my genitals are permanantly disfigured and scarred and I was denied vital compenents of my sexual organs for life by an unscrupulous, arcane, non-medical procedure sanctioned by the AMA.

My parents were misled and misinformed by hospital staffers. When I confronted my mother about it she told me she was not even given a choice, the doctor just did it, because "that is what people did."

This practice must be made illegal for the safety and wholeness of our infant sons. So generations more men are not mutilated by hospitals and doctors.

Case Details:
I was circumcised at birth. At the age of 22 I learned about what circumcision is and asked my mother and father about mine. My dad never knew anything about it and just thought it was "what you do". My mother asked the pediatrician before I was cut "what is the purpose", "is it necessary", "does the foreskin have any purpose" and the doctor simply told her "no". He said "the foreskin is useless and will only cause him problems". So like any good mother she had me cut because she thought it was the right thing to do. Now that I have educated myself on this subject and have enlightened my parents both of them feel terrible about it. My mother has even cried over it. My purpose in all of this was not at all to upset or blame my parents. They did what they were told to do by my pediatrician. My purpose is to fight back at the one who harmed me, harmed my whole family. I want to fight back at the doctors who lied to my parents and to millions of parents across this country. Circumcision should be outlawed. As a result I am not normal now. I long for my missing foreskin. Laugh all you want but to me its serious. I have mental disstress from this. I call my circumcision scar the "scar of shame". I am embarrassed that I am cut, I feel like less of a man. A piece of me is missing, I am not happy about this. Why couldn't I have just been left alone??? I want what was taken from me at birth against my will. My penis is smaller, has drastically less sensativity and it is uncomfortable. All day long the head of my penis rubs on my underwear and it hurts. Why was this done again??? What are the benefits??? Also its interesting that I have had 3 UTI's in my life and i'm circumcised. I am a very clean person, I shower twice a day. I'm not seeing any of the so called benefits from being cut.

Case Details:

The Medical Community has not provided parents with the information needed to make an informed decison regarding whether or not to circumsize their children. They consistently minimize the value of the foreskin and its contribution to sexual function and protection against disease. They isolate and emphasize minor benefits and personal preferences. They do NOT act in the best interests of the child.


Because of this biased information from the medical community, my parents made the UNINFORMED decision to circumsize me as an infant. Further I was not given the chance to make this decision as an informed adult.


I believe that if my parents had been informed of the trade offs in an objective and unbiased way, they would have chosen to leave my foreskin intact, as evidenced by the fact that my younger brother was not circumsized at birth.


I have now found, through foreskin restoration, that my sexual function and satisfaction were dramaticaly harmed by circumcision. And that there was no medical disease or condition that would have outweighed this loss of function and satisfaction.


As a result, the first 30 years of my sexual experiences were significantly impaired by the medical community and I seek compensation for that harm to me.

I resent the fact that my parents made the decision to mutilate my penis. I was circumcised twice, once as an infant and once at the age of 10 or 11. I remember the 2nd time and it is not something I would put anyone through. The damage is they removed too much skin from my shaft and now erections and intercourse are painful unless I use a lube.

I have no information on the Doctor who performed the "surgery" that mutilated my penis in 1968. I don't if there is a public record of the event at all. I imagine I have to make a public records search in New York City to determine that. If the Doctor is not alive, do I have recourse to sue the hospital or the city or state of New York?

It hurts to think that at this moment some poor boy is going through this inhumane act of abuse. Shame on you people who let this continue.

Case Details:
When I was born a little over 31 years ago in January 1977. I was unnecessarily circumcised by a doctor whom never gave informed consent nor received any written/verbal consent from my mother who was single at the time. He took advantage of my mother's ignorance. The doctor basically said "it was the thing to do" back then. These doctors have motivation to perform these surgeries because it benefits them financial, while the helpless infant has no say what happens to his penis. I am totally outraged by these atrocities performed on little boys while it's against the law to remove the clitoral hood on females. Imagine what the clitoris would look like after years of being exposed to the elements.

My penis has suffered the ill effects not having a foreskin to protect the glans. It has become keratinization being exposed to the elements for 31 plus years.

Thank You

Even though I have not been attacked with a knife on my penis when I was a helpless child, I am feeling violated by the fact that this injustice and brutal rape of little boys in the U.S. and children across this world is still being allowed and ignored by the government and the law makers. Watching a circumcision on a video and on photos made me very angry and sick in my stomach. It made me want to chop those bastards’ hands off. I propose that anybody who sticks knives into children’s genitals shall be punished with prison for life if they don’t drop their knives and torture clamps in spite of this global awakening so this brutal form of slavery will come to an end now.

Case Details:
I was genitally mutilated without any medical need or consent. As an adoptee, I didn't even have parents to consent on my behalf!

I was born at Rochester General Hospital (1600 Portland Ave, Rochester, NY) in 1966.

Not a day goes by without me seeing the damage done to my person. I have spent thousands of dollars and countless days of deep depression due to my circumcision.

It has caused many problems with establishing trust with others, as well as prevented me from leading a normal sex life. I remain a single man at almost 42 years old with more baggage than anyone care to deal with... all thanks to a "little snip."

I'd like to harm the people that caused me the pain and suffering I've endured for so long. If I can't have my 'original equipment' back, I should at least be comfortable with compesation and the knowledge that EVERY surgon that commits this unjust procedure on any unconcenting person will pay the price.

Case Details:
I was circumcised as an infant, at an age where I was unable to speak for myself. There was no reason to do it, either. I guess my parents believed in the old myth that it makes it cleaner. But at what cost? It bothers me to know that I do not have an intact penis. I actually think about it quite often. As a result of this, I am brutally offended and traumatized whenever I see male genital integrity violated in the media. I know that sex for me will never be as satisfying as it would be for an uncircumcised man. I also know that sex will never be as satisfying for my partners either, because the foreskin serves as a gliding mechanism that makes sex better for women. I wish I could have mine back, but sadly that's impossible. It's gone, and I'm left to feel like a fraction of a man for the rest of my life.

Case Details:
The doctor who circumcised me has been described by other doctors as "incompetent". I knew as a 3 or 4 year old that my penis did not look like those of my brothers. I have had
fine touch sensitivity testing on my penis and there was less sensitivity than those of most circumcised men.

Even if the circumcision had been done
properly, knowing what I now know about
foreskin and circumcision, I would never have consented to a circumcision
without an absolute medical emergency.

Female genital cutting on minors is illeagal in the USA, but male genital cutting on minors is perfectly legal.
Why aren't all infants afforded the same protection under the law against unnecessary forced genital cutting?

Case Details:
I will always be an easy mark for the jailers of the world. why? because my first sexual experience was bloody, violent and shaming. yet the society i live in requires that i bury the memory of this experience deep, or else. circumcision is the soul-killing experience and the penitentiaries of this country are filled with sweet baby boys who were betrayed and humiliated by those who should have known the consequences. no wonder we live in such a violent country. please e-mail or phone. 707 293-0863. dr. ragan of oak ridge hospital in tennessee is long gone but i struggle to keep up the will to live every single day.

Case Details:
Dr. Robert Landgraff circumcised me for no reason in Niles, Michigan in 1962. I was healthy and normal and he amputated a valuable body part. Sex feels dull as a result.

I hold culpable Dr. Landgraf and any doctor who was in a position to formulate a sane policy statement that should have discouraged warrantless surgery on unconsenting minors, and also the insurance company who paid for a destructive amputation.

Case Details:
Nobody consented to my circumcision, my brother's or my 2 cousins. We were all born before the 1973 court decision. My uncle and aunt specifically told the doctor not to circumcise my cousins and they were circumcised anyway. My uncle still gets very angry about this if it is mentioned. The same doctor delivered my brother and me so I have no doubt there was no consent given

Case Details:
I was circumcised without my consent as an infant. I have been physically and emotionally damaged because of this. On the physical level, I have lost an important part of my sexual response and sexual sensation. I will never be able to feel the complete and normal feeling of sex because someone removed an organ critical to that normal experience. On an emotional level, I feel violated—I feel raped. Whenever I look at my penis I am again reminded of the violence forced upon me.

Case Details:
i was genitally mutilated without any form of medical need nor did i offer any form of consent. when i found out this was done to me a couple of years ago i was devastated. i felt (and still feel) as though i don't own a single thing in this world because the one thing that i thought i could always consider mine (my body) was mutilated for absolutely no reason... and my opinion on the matter was never considered.
like too many other people in the world i was never asked or even informed what was going to be done to me. i feel as though this is a very obvious violation of human rights but nobody seems to care, as if my thoughts/ideas don't matter in any way even though my body is the one in question (for the surgery that is).
i'm reminded every single day that my body in no way belongs to be, i believe i should get some sort of compensation for that. how can such a terrible and barbaric practice continue in the US? how can so many people be forced into cosmetic surgery and seem to not be effected by it in any way? i'm unable to answer these questions because people really should be bothered by this and the government should have taken action on this terrible thing many years ago.

Case Details:

Shortly after I was born in 1968, I was circumcised. This action, based on evidence of human physiology gleaned from research, substantially reduced the sensitivity and responsiveness of my reproductive organs and rendered important parts of their functioning inoperative, resulting in a substantial diminshment of my quality of life and having had negative psychological effects that were entirely avoidable.

The action was done without my consent and absent medical necessity. Since it resulted in permanent disfiguring and functional impairment of an important part of my body, its execution exceeded the rights of my parents to mandate the process, lawful though it was at the time and remains so, and requested nonetheless in good faith by them.

The actual agent of action, the hospital in question (_____), however, undertook this procedure without disclosing the nature and impact of this procedure to my parents. In addition, its behavior with regard to the procedure was reckless, also with a state of negligent indifference being present, together constituting an action and that is, absent redress in criminal courts, nonetheless subject to redress in a civil one.

I claim damages of $10 million for pain and suffering compensation due to the injuries herein described.
