Circumcision protest group demonstrates in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. You might take a second look driving through one of Springfield's busiest intersections.

There's a group there protesting infant circumcision - using fake blood on signs and clothes at Battlefield and Glenstone.

The protesters here pulled out fake blood, splattered it on their pants and posters, and stood on the corner here for the past hour.

Despite the blood, and graphic pictures, they say the point is not to scare people, but to get you to see their signs which they say point out what they say is cruelty to boys.

The group "Bloodstained Men and Their Friends" are behind the protest. They've been traveling across the country with the same message against infant circumcision.

The protesters call circumcision torture to babies, and wear the blood to represent that.
Protesters say boys should be able to choose whether or not to get circumcised when they become an adult -- instead of being forced at birth.

The protesters are also handing out flyers and information on circumcision.
