Sorry that I don't know more info but several weeks ago, I was watching one of those hour long documentary type shows on MSNBC. It was the case of a set of twin boys, one of whom had a botched circumcision. Because of this he was given sex reassignment surgery.<br><br>
Not that circ was the basis of all of their problems but it did start with a circ and they suffered terribly.<br><br>
I believe the boys were born in Canada but the doc they consulted with for the sex reassignment surgery was in the U.S.<br><br>
This is just for curiosities sake mainly. And if it will help other peoplt to see the case against circ, I am all for it.<br><br>
