Oprah on circumcision today? - Page 5

Also, the foreskin is used to make large amounts of skin to be used for testing--"like human yogurt" is the way one article I read puts it. The foreskin is used to culture more skin.

Slightly OT but, if foreskin is used to culture more skin, would a reconstruction of the foreskin be possible from a circ'd man, say if he "borrowed" foreskin cells from an intact man?

Thanks for nothing Oprah

I've been convincing DH why we should not circ our 8month old. Yesterday he comes to me saying he watched the Oprah and how everyone should be circ'd etc. So all the work I've done has gone out the window thanks to her UNINFORMED show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My DH is Muslim as well, so the convincing has been difficult but I had really made some progress!

Please is anyone doing a letter writing campaign? Do we just send the letters to the website. I'm so irate that's she's such a powerful woman and would let some uninformed Dr. inform so many parents.

Thanks!

Soap is unnecessary and can irritate and problems can occur from that. There is no way I could use soap on my inner folds.

You should mention this on the board. Its a stark contrast to what others are saying. It should slap them up a bit. Which is what they need. Following the crowd, a very UNINFORMED one at that!

Don't give up on the hopes for your WHOLE ds. In the end you WILL win! You have the power to protect him. Makes you feel liberated doesn't it?

As for Oprah, personally write her an e-mail. Click "Send in your thoughts".

Does anyone have her SNAIL MAIL address?

I sent a message through the website, and I have some anti-circ information I will mail along with a letter when we get a snail mail address. I'm not an Oprah fan at all, but this just pisses me off.

With this link, you can "Ask Dr. Oz anything"

Editing again...

This site says that this is her snail mail address:

Harpo Productions
P. O. Box 909715
Chicago, IL 60607

I also found this one...

I'm very proud of your husband's willingness to accept that his son's foreskin belongs to him. I understand that it's a process that he's not a custom to.

So we pay the doctors to cut it off, they sell it, and then we pay to have it put back on? :

I agree. I sent a letter and anti-circ information and resource sheets to both of the addresses I posted above, in addition to e-mailing through the form on her website.

My son is circ'ed, and he isnt the best washer and let me tell you that little fella gets pretty damn nasty sometimes and he cant figure out why his penis is all red and irriatated, I have to remind him that he has to wash it, like move the skin around (he still has skin) and like wash it. (he is 8 by the way, i dont bathe him anymore) So what he was saying about the boys who arent cir'ed need to be more aware, he is full of it... he needs to talk to my 8 year old lol

Oh Dr. Oz, I expected better from you!

I wrote too. I don't watch her show but love her magazine. Now, I won't buy it.

If she gets lots of letters, maybe she'll have to pay attention.

Usually, Oprah is pretty good at thinking outside the box of American culture.

OMG! I'm glad that thing opened in a partial window. It took me a second to realize what I was seeing!:
