Freedom of Information requests finds dozens of life threatening injuries from circumcision from one hospital
" In 2011 alone, nearly a dozen infant boys had to be treated for “life threatening haemorrhage, shock or sepsis” as a result of their non-therapeutic circumcisions at a single children’s hospital in Birmingham. This information was made public due to a specific freedom of information request, and so would not otherwise have been reported. It is clear, then, that we are seeing only the tip of the iceberg in terms of risks and complications " = Ref :  Checketts, R. (2012). Response to freedom of information request, FOI/0742.
