Our thanks to John for informing us of the plight of a 12-year-old boy who doesn’t wish to be circumcised, but is being taken to the QC clinic in Coventry for the procedure to take place at 1:00 pm today. We know of this from three Reddit posts:
The organization carrying out operations is the QC Clinic, which operates in Coventry and Sheffield. We’ve archived a number of pages from their website:
Clinic Address: City of Coventry NHS Healthcare Centre, Stoney Stanton Road, Coventry CV1 4FS.
Pay and display parking on the premises is available. Pay and display street parking is also available and it is cheaper.
We are on the ground floor of the building. Please follow signs for “Phlebotomy”/Blood Test, the “Phlebotomy”/Blood Test waiting area is where you will find our friendly receptionist. Upon arrival please report to our receptionist.
Please report to reception 10 minutes prior to your appointment time.
Contact us which shows the Coventry ‘clinic’ being open between 9am and 3pm today. I’ve just posted the following through this online form:
Illegal male circumcision
I lead the political party Justice for Men & Boys http://j4mb.org.uk. Non-therapeutic circumcision is illegal under the Offences Against the Person Act (1861), being at least Actual Bodily Harm, and possibly Grievous Bodily Harm. I shall be travelling to your clinic in Coventry today in a bid to stop the circumcision of a 12-year-old boy who has claimed on Reddit that he is to be circumcised at 1pm today without his consent.
If you can, please join Patrick Smyth and myself in our bid to stop this circumcision. We plan to arrive at the clinic well before 12:00, and will be bringing placards and leaflets, as well as wearing a bodycam. I’ll also do what I can to alert the local media in Coventry. Please call me (07967 026163) if you’ll be joining us. Thanks.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
