This is a bit of an odd collection of thoughts... please forgive me for the lack of continuity.
I'm annoyed that the doctor's "information" they give doesn't say anything more than "it doesn't do any good, but it's still ok." When I asked one preggo (at the time) friend if she had done her homework, she said yes. Her doctor told her it didn't make a difference if her son was circed or not. Well, it might not matter to the doc, but it might matter to the son, and his wife, and even his mom if there's troubles breastfeeding. What a load of crap.
Frank, you mentioned breaking off an engagement because your fiance was adament about having any sons circ'd for religious reasons. I got the impression she was Christian of some sort (not Jewish though). If this is the case, doesn't it seem odd that a doctor would be performing a religious rite? Would she have her ped baptize her baby? Doesn't make sense.
Is there a way to request a study be done? I would love to know what percentage of convicted rapists are circ'd. Actually, I think it would be helpful to know what percentage of convicts X years old are circ'd vs how many boys born in the same year were circ'd.
Also, I've read here in a few posts that over 200 babies a year die because of circ complications. How many men die of penile cancer?
Thanks for putting up with my rambling.
