I finally got my web site up and running. I have a "resources" section and in it there's a pretty long blurb on circ. If you have any input, I'd appreciate it!

Nice! So happy to see more people getting the word out

Just a typo I saw here:
Quote:
The circumcision rate is about 57% depending on your are.
(change to area)

I don't particularly care for this line:
Quote:
There is such an emphasis on being independent in our country; this decision would be a good thing to not be part of the flock on.
It just reads very awkward to me. Maybe change it to something more like "this decision is an appropriate one to leave in the hands of the individual when he is older." Or simply emphasise that it's not a parent's place to make such a decision for someone based on anything but medical need.

I would also, in the section about hygiene, consider adding a blurb about how EASY it is to care for an infant's intact penis. No retracting, no q-tip use, no gauze, or poop getting into the urethra, etc.

Glad to see others are getting the word out on the web. The more sites we have like this the better.

Thank you, parents need to see something like this, gently, simply urging them to research.

Thank you for your input! (And once I get the password to the FTP site, I'll get the changes up! =) )
