MSNBC is definitely pro-circ, the same article reads so much different there. They put a clear pro-circ spin. It's all those damn immigrants forcing the circ rate down (just to be clear this is what I think MSNBC is trying to say). : Plus the cute pic of the cut boys, see they are so happy they are missing their foreskin.
You will just want to puke if you read the comments. Oh my, I can't believe there are people like that in the world. One comment was about a woman who said she had to have her 2 sons done at 10 and 3 months. The older one because his foreskin didn't grow as fast as the rest of his penis (???) and the 3 month old because his foreskin wasn't large enough and did NOT retract!! At 3 months old!! EGADS, what is wrong with this world?
I linked directly to the poll the first time and didn't close my browser OR clear my cookies before going there from the article the second time I'm also in a very low-circumcising area of the US. Maybe it's 'cause I'm on a Mac :
At least it's still pretty much 50/50. There's no clear lead for pro-circumcision which there would have been in years past. I don't know any immigrants and I know almost nobody who circumcised their sons. It's such a rare thing for me to even see a circumcised boy being changed in the swimming pool locker room that it's always a shock when I see one.
I live in a very wealthy, well-educated town and immigrants couldn't really afford to live here. We can barely afford to rent here and won't be living here much longer... we live in the middle-class slums (seriously, terrible rental and our landlord acts like a slum-lord...).
