one of dh's old friends recently had his first child (well, his girl did) & my first question was, "they're not going to circ him, are they?" dh is the modest type who does a good thing & then doesn't talk about it, so i had no idea that he had had The Talk with them months ago. he explained the pain, the fact that it's unnecessary, etc. well, they circ'ed him, of course. i just don't get it! why do people persist in such a barbaric procedure?! ritualistic mutilation of our babies has got to stop! well, i was not a fan of these people before, but now i am completely disgusted by them. they are not welcome in my home & i have no desire to visit the baby, since i will practically have to sew my lips shut to keep from making cruel remarks about circumstraints, vanity & mindless cruelty perpetrated onto children by their own parents, the very people who should be protecting that sweet baby.<br><br>
people who beat their kids have them taken away. mothers who do crack while pregnant lose their babies, too. why is it socially accepted to slice a large chunk of skin from the middle of the penis of your newborn boy?

You quasi-kid, but you're also on to something there. The U.S.,-- the paradise for pharmaceutical companies selling these E.D. drugs.<br><br>
I was curious about non-U.S. circumcising countries like Israel, Turkey and the Philippines... what the E.D. market like over there?

I think they just don't believe that doctors would do something as bad as what you're saying. They have no grasp of the history of the medical profession or how medicine is practiced. They asked dr. about the pain your husband talked about and the doctor said they use pain relief and it was no big deal and your husband was wrong. They also don't believe that our great culture could participate on such a large scale in a dysfunctional program like this. After all we have human rights here.
