I just read the article you quoted and thought it was great but I have to admit that my stomach is in a knot. She started it by saying that the AAP was going to come one with a statement that all boys should be circed. Why? For years they have quietly said its not needed but now they are going to promote it?!?!

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

why? because you can sell 1ml of liquid containing neonatal foreskin cells for almost $600. Money money money.

But it'll still come out to the public eventually and they'll have to explain themselves.

yes!

I recently watched a documentary on UPS and Fedex, showing behind the scenes how they ship stuff, etc. One of the major shipping centers(can't recall if it was UPS or Fedex) holds a special giant freezer just for storing foreskins, to be flown to a company in California. That company then sells them for creams, etc. It was showing the workers rushing to open and shut the freezer so that they wouldn't get spoiled. Why aren't more people outraged by this?

Oh yes....I am actually getting sick of reading about it on facebook through the various groups that I am a member of on there. Whole Network, Saving Our Sons, Intact America, Boys Deserve Better. It's been posted several times in this past week, and reading about it ruins my whole day...just sick beyond words. I tried to tell hubby and he stopped me when I told him a bit of what it involved. How do parents agree to this? A regular bris is one thing, but this is just over the top. Molestation and mutilation.

Yup, I have read that. Sick is what it is. No ones religion should be allowed to impose on another persons body. Even though the sucking part is done in a very small sect of the Jewish faith, it still does not make it right. In any other situation that would be considered child abuse. It blows my mind that this is considered okay because it is done in the name of religion. Poor baby lost his life due to an unneeded procedure. He is not the first nor will he be the last boy child that will loose his life this year because his parents feel it is their right to remove a healthy functioning part of their baby boys penis(no matter the reason).

Edit: The baby did not lose his life this year but in Sept 2011. It was just made public recently. Just shows how unimportant circumcision death is in the US media.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

just have to say that it makes me very sad that some people care more about protecting their precious cloth diapers over protecting their son from an unnecessary and painful procedure. you'd think that people who want to cloth diaper would be more into keeping things natural, kwim?

end rant.
