I was wondering what things have you noticed what causes a parent to change the views of being pro-circ or in the neutral position to change to become an intactivist as in against circumcision.
I have noticed that many times that stories of complications don't change the minds of first time parents to be but they more likely will get their mind changed when they read stories from parents that circ'ed and regret it.
The real thing that I have seen parents really changing their view is if they have had high severe complications of their son's circumcision as in bleeding, loss of glans or partial ablation of glans .
Also, a doctor may end up sharing a view stating that circumcision is more cosmetic than anything may result in a change of view of parents who already circ'ed.
Also, I learned that even many times that even screams from their child during circumcision will not always change their minds into not circ'ing and I wonder why is it because they are not researching or just feel like they have too ?
I have learned that when parents who have already circ'ed kid(s) are more likely to change their minds after they researched it .
I know dad's that end up more changed into against circ'ing after they have a child that is left to be intact .
