Nursing, Circumcision, and War!

In this powerful interview, nurse Jessica Rigdon speaks about her experience viewing a circumcision for the first time in nursing school, and what it led to in her marriage and her life. This gut-wrenching experience was, for many nurses, the beginning of a path of advocacy for the body autonomy rights of children. The video highlights the reality of circumcision’s inhumanity, the emotional damage done to men circumcised as infants, and how education and listening to mothers’ protective instincts can shift the playing field for the next generation of boys.

“It’s really important for us mothers and medical professionals to just stand up and do what’s right.” ~Jessica, RN
