Babies foreskins could be sold --- ethics article
I took this:
"The KwaZulu-Natal department of health said last year that from April 2012 it would, for the first time, offer circumcision as an option to 10% of the mothers of male babies born in public hospitals."
to mean that the government will allow it?
I wonder which 10% will be "offered" circumcision?
A thread for collating official statements, medical article abstracts and the like, regarding the use of foreskin-derived products (both as an ingredient and as a testing medium), with a focus on helping readers prepare arguments to present to the FDA in the lead up to, and to participants at the sixth "International Cooperation on Cosmetic Regulation" (ICCR-6) conference itself (to be held in the United States sometime around June 2012), about why it is ethically unsound and medically unnecessary to use neonatal foreskin derived products in the cosmetic and medical industries, has been started here:
Credible submissions to the FDA in the lead up to the ICCR-6 conference present the best avenue for seriously addressing this issue.
