I feel so honored, I just found an article I wrote last June for our local newspaper listed on the cirp website!!

http://www.cirp.org/news/thespectrum06-11-03/

I also had a letter published in the same paper today regarding breastfeeding.

I had to share!

Wow! I'm impressed! That was a great letter!

I'm curious what prompted it and what response it generated.

Frank, Back in April when the Utah legislature voted to deny funding for medicaid to cover circumcision I wrote a short letter to the editor congratulating the legislature. The response was immediate and (of course) uninformed. I then wrote a little longer letter with some actual facts which preceded an avalanche of response. The newspaper then asked me for a short "guest editorial" piece, that is what is on the cirp website.

Utah has one of the highest rates of circ in the nation. I am just trying to do my part here in So. Utah to stop it. After my article appeared in the paper I noticed that every stop sign around the local hospital had a sticker on it so that it read

STOP
circumcising babies.

I guess I inspired someone.
