FLORIDA BULLETIN: Circumcision Scheduled for 4-yo - Anonymous User Discloses Details

The mother of the boy in question as she is forced
to sign consent papers for her son's circumcision.

Previously on the Florida Circumcision Saga, a mother was forced to sign the consent form for the circumcision of her healthy, non-consenting son, by Florida courts, in order to appease his father's wishes.

It appears that the father has become successful in finding a doctor that will perform the elective surgery, and a circumcision has been scheduled. The child is scheduled to be circumcised on Thursday, June 11 at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital by one Gary Birken, MD.

The following was sent to the group dedicating itself to help the child:

"To the page administrators,
This is a throwaway account. I cannot give you any further information about me. This is NOT my real name. But I work at JDCH and due to my position and job I have gotten to see a lot of what has been going on surrounding Chase's situation. I want to share what I know because I am so strongly against anyone so much as touching Chase with a ten foot pole. This is what I know - rumor or otherwise - and whether you share it with your followers or not is up to you.

-Chase's father has not actually met with Dr Birken. From what I understand from his scheduling nurses, they are being ushered in without needing to establish a new patient relationship. Thursday will be their first meeting.

-Dr Birken will cut Chase no matter what Chase says or does in office. I have worked with Dr Birken in his office before and he is a very no nonsense doctor who will do whatever he has to in order to get done what he feels should be done. He has pressured patients and parents into unnecessary or excessive procedures in the past and I have no doubt he will have Chase forcibly restrained and put under anesthesia without regard to Chase's medical history. Birken is NOT one of the more well loved doctors in our hospital system and that he has agreed to do this does not surprise me. You WILL NOT stop this by trying to reach out to Birken's office - but you WILL make a big difference through the hospital itself. If you can convince them that their general image will be tarnished or that they may face lawsuits they may bar Birken from taking Chase as a patient.

-Hospital administration is threatening staff that chooses to participate in any sort of walk out, protest, or refusal to come in/work with the patient. Nobody in Birken's office is allowed to call off sick on Thursday. They have said that they will place anyone who participates in any acknowledgement of Chase's procedure on leave or will outright fire them for insubordination and violation of HIPPA (because by refusing to come in, protesting, or refusing to work with Birken or Chase they are acknowledging that he is a patient who will be in that day - it is a VERY fine line but the hospital believes they are within their rights).

-There is talk of secretly rescheduling the procedure to TOMORROW (Wednesday, June 10) or even to Friday. A very good friend of mine is a float nurse that was in Birken's office yesterday and she said that one of the administrators is even considering having Birken be called to "emergency surgery" later today so that Chase can be circumcised, but I do not think this will happen.

-Regardless of when the procedure occurs the hospital will likely hire additional security detail and may also ask the police to be present all day on Thursday. This may mean additional risk for protesters, so those who do choose to protest should bring cameras and be prepared to be as open and obvious about being peaceful as possible.

-Currently the hospital is directing all questions about the case to the director of corporate communications, Kerting Baldwin - and that's only because if it's going to one person then all phone calls and emails can be systematically ignored if they are not "important". I have been told that comments on the Facebook page will likely start being deleted soon (within 24 hours) and that they may shut down commenting entirely.

-Despite discussing taking precautions, hospital administration does NOT think that there will be much to worry about on Thursday. They are PREPARING for the worst but I have personally heard one of the upper level admins say that they would be shocked if there were "more than one or two of those crazy, smelly hippie moms with misspelled signs whose kids are homeschooled and unvaccinated". That comment will probably stick with me forever. It was wrong on so many levels."

It appears as if this country will actually allow a miscarriage of justice, and allow a doctor to get away with performing elective, non-medical surgery on a healthy non-consenting child.

The good that will have come from this fight is that it has garnered global attention about this, and the forced circumcision of healthy, non-consenting minors has become an issue that people can no longer ignore.

One thing is for sure; even if the father is successful in having his healthy, non-consenting son forcibly circumcised by a medical professional, it won't be the last we will have heard from this.

One Dr. John Trainer MD has publicly posted this on Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital's Facebook Page where the boy is scheduled to be forcibly circumcised:

"Simply an observation: the surgeon who would perform an elective surgery on a four-year-old, over the objection of his mother, and the objection of the four-year-old, has committed a gross breach of medical ethics.

If your hospital is complicent in the mutilation of Chase Hironimus, know that I will be filing an ethical complaint with the Florida Board of Medicine the next day."

What can you do?
(1) Post on the hospital's Facebook page, demanding that they refuse to circumcise a healthy child whose mother is vehemently opposed to the surgery, and telling them that if they do, there will be both public relations and legal consequences
(2) Call the hospital 954-265-5933, and (similarly) tell the risk-management department that there will be both legal and reputational consequences if they circumcise the Hironimus (Nebus) boy
(3) Call the physician's office (954) 265-0072 and warn him that the mother of the child is vehemently opposed to the circumcision, and that to conduct medically unnecessary surgery under these circumstances is both unethical and legally risky

 Muslim child about to be circumcised. One can be sure
nobody "convinced" him of anything, money is not
enough to comfort this child who knows what is coming

As a 4-year-old, the child may have to be restrained.
Here is a picture of a 4-year-old being forcibly circumcised
in Turkey. Boys in Muslim traditions are circumcised at later ages.
