A mother has faced abuse, death threats and promises to report her to child services after posting an image of her baby’s cheek with a piercing on Facebook.

Enedina Vance from Fostoria, Ohio posted the image, which has now been shared more than 12,000 times, saying: ‘I’m the parent, she is MY CHILD, I will do whatever I want! I make all of her decisions until she’s 18, I made her, I own her!’Enedina argued that it was her right to do whatever she wanted to her child's body - as a way to highlight her opposition to circumcision and any form of genital cutting 

As the post spread like wildfire, people were threatening to ‘beat her to death, call child protective services and take away her children.’Enedina Vance from Fostoria, Ohio posted an image of her baby daughter with an apparent dimple piercing on Facebook, but the image was not all it seemed on first glance 

However, the image was not all it seemed as the mother-of-six had in fact doctored the picture in order to make a point about the circumcision of baby boys.

‘Its ironic that people were ready to beat me to death over my excuses for piercing my baby, but then they used the same EXACT excuse to justify cutting their baby,’ she explained.

Enedina received a deluge of horrified comments, including one from a woman who stated she was against giving babies piercings but sees nothing wrong with circumcision
