Ban ear piercing for babies/toddlers

Ban ear piercing for babies/toddlers

Make it illegal for babies/toddlers to get their ears pierced. Set a minimum legal age requirement.

Why is this important?

It is a form of child cruelty. Severe pain and fear is inflicted upon infants unnecessarily. It serves no purpose other than to satisfy the parent's vanity. Other forms of physically harming children are illegal- this should be no different.


Reasons for signing

  • Dont agree with it
  • It's not your body to pierce, let your child decide when old enough. The only reason you would get it done is becaise it looks cute, Children are not accessories!!
  • Child cruelty
