Interesting story, Dave! Makes one think that maybe some doctors collect foreskins in a similar manner to some tribes who (historically) collected scalps!

I think Edward Wallerstein was one of the first people in the U.S. to publicly oppose RIC. I read his book "CIRCUMCISION, AN AMERICAN HEALTH FALLACY" in a library about 25 years ago. It was an...
