Regrettably, that doesn't seem to be the case. I am not sure where those blogs got their information but when I read them, I got in touch with the women who sort of coordinates the effort nationally. She got in touch with whomever is in charge of WV Medicaid and found out differently and emailed us. But South Carolina is genuine, state number 17 I believe.

I've worked on MD myself and they seem open to the idea but not ready to commit yet. On the good side though, I did find out that of all male Medicaid births, only 55% were circumcised through the program. This number has been on the decline for at least 5 years.
