Just heard this in the religious thread, which I had not heard. I woulda thought Tony would ahve been all over this one- for those of you who know who Tony is:

The mohel tested neg. for herpes and was cleared.

Has anyone else heard that? Just wanted to get an update.

BTW, the above link was not working for me- I'd like to read that info.

Thanks,

Jessica

"Neonatal Genital Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 Infection After Jewish Ritual Circumcision: Modern Medicine and Religious Tradition"

I don't know if that's of interest to anyone, but the problem is well known and has been documented.

Is it the same Tony that is a moderator on a circumcision support board at another site?

I had read that Mayor Bloomberg had dropped charges against the mohel and had turned it over a rabbinical court but not that he had tested negative for HSV1. Do you have a source for that?

Yeah, I'm just surprised if this is true that he wouldnt' have posted it up and down and sideways over there.

I don't have a source, but I thought I'd check here first. I'll have to ask for the source on the spirituality circ thread (Emily, Queen of the Pride's post got moved over there) - I just am sure that will not go over very well. I'll try to do some more searching first but if I don't find it, I'll ask for a source.

What I've been hearing is that the results haven't been (and, presumably won't be) publically released. What we do know is that he's now being required to use a glass tube and or gauze to do the suctioning instead of his mouth. Hmm.
