How 'bout a bumper sticker: "If you want to mutilate your child, at least pay for it out of pocket."
Yes, yes, I totally agree! I live in MI too. Cutting circ would save the state over 2.5 million dollars.

FYI in the US, about 3/4 of the time an infant circumcision would be done by the mother's obstetrician.

In military hospitals, only the boy's pediatrician would do it.

I don't know what the situation in New Mexico is if you want I can put you in touch with the person coordinating. Please let me know. BlessedMommy there is an active group in MI who you could work with if you want. I heard they are even at a baby expo this week and were looking for volunteers. Perspective I know a few were working on Ny do you want to get in touch with them?

If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Healthd...8105119&page=1

Legislators think in headlines, and this one is a doozy: "Circumcision Doesn't Lessen HIV Transmission" You might consider sending a printout to your medical director or representative.

You might also want to take a look at http://www.nocircky.org , the Kentucky defunding effort. Lots of work and education, but no change in policy yet.

If you're in KY and want to help, or think we can assist you with open records requests, etc., in your own state, speak up.
