Mother Accused Of Child Abuse After Baby Ear Piercing Video Goes Viral
I want to pass along a word of caution. My 2nd GrandSon’s name is 2 Hearts. The first X-Ray showed nothing out of the ordinary, the second showed the same dark shape as the first, which the Doctor said was his heart and right near the top of the X-Ray was the shiny shape of a heart. After surgery, it was the small gold heart earring my Daughter-in-Law had lost.
A controversial video of a baby’s ears being pierced has sparked a fierce debate online with some even regarding it as ‘child abuse.’
The short clip, which is believed to have been filmed in the US, surfaced on the Piercings Facebook page earlier this month and has caused outrage with more than 3.6 million views and 12,000 comments.
In the video, a young baby is being held by her mother as the salon worker attempts to place marker dots on her ears.
While she seems at ease at first, the child appears to become increasingly distressed as the procedure takes place.
After two workers puncture the baby’s lobes at the same time using a piercing gun, the startled youngster cries out while the mother and staff do their best to comfort her.
Concerned by the footage, the vast majority of comments range from disbelief to hatred, with many calling it ‘child abuse.’
“Barbaric! Why would anyone do this to a baby?” one Facebook user wrote.
Another added, “All done for the sake of the parents, should be an age limit to stop this from happening.”
WOW…. 3.6 Million views and 12,000 comments. You know, I wonder why Children still aren’t safe after 7,000 years, and I wonder how anyone can think the murder of an unborn Child should be legal.
