Oregon Mother has three month old Baby.
Mother reads the Old Testament and decides that she wants Baby to be circumcised.
But Mother fears Baby is too old for a doctor to agree to perform the circumcision.
So Mother watches YouTube videos on circumcision.
And decides to perform the circumcision on Baby herself.
Using a box-cutter.
Only Baby bleeds excessively and suffers great pain during the circumcision.
So Mother dials 911 for assistance.
Mother is arrested for harming Baby.
Mother pleads guilty to criminal mistreatment.
Mother is sentenced to five years’ probation…
And ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
The Court finds that she loves Baby and had no intent to hurt him.
Baby has since recovered and lives with his three siblings … in the child welfare system. Mother has supervised visits with Baby and his siblings.
