Re: SC Medicaid no longer covering routine circumcision!
They absolutely do not. They only pay for chiropractors at MTF facilities for ACTIVE DUTY personnel. Believe me, if they paid for it I wouldn't be paying for it myself.

There are medical reasons, including infections and preventing infections and I know kids via my job who have had to have circ. at ages 2-6 because of them.
To me its no different than any other elective procedure and its a personal choice that I don't think someone has a right to decide for someone else.
ANd to the bolded...REALLY? I cannot believe you just said that!!! So it's okay to decide FOR a baby boy who has no choice? You contradict yourself every other sentence.
