A group against circumcising children are in Lafayette as part of their Gulf Coast tour.
The group Bloodstained Men & Their Friends held signs at the corner of West Congress Street and Bertrand Drive with messages like “Circumcision is medical fraud” and “His body his choice.”
Lafayette is their second-to-last stop on their 22-day tour, spanning over 20 cities. The group will head to Hoston tomorrow.
According to the group’s senior advisor and director, Erika Talvitie, Bloodstained Men & Their Friends is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes peaceful protests.
They believe someone who cannot consent, like a child, should not be circumcised.
