Unnamed baby dies in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada of circumcision site infection Sept. 2004.
"Circumcision doctor killed boy, 9, with heroin overdose" The Independent (40 City Road, London, England, ECI 2DB), July 9, 1994.
There were 7 little boys that one Brooklyn hospital "surgically reassigned" into girls in the last 10 years after botched circumcisions amputated their penises!
Three New York City boys died in 2004 after their circumciser infected them with herpes. A fourth one is profoundly mentally retarded from the infection.
"About 1,350,000 newborn American males are circumcised annually, and about 230 of them die as a result of this operation."
(Sex by Prescription, by Thomas S. Szasz, MD, Syracuse University
According to Robert Leon Baker, MD, former rear-admiral in the US Navy Medical Corps, an estimated 229 babies die every year due directly or indirectly to circumcisions. (Sexual Medicine Today, Vol. 3, No. 11, November 1979).
On other boards, the list has been disputed but a google search will confirm all of them. Likewise, they will assert that babies and children have died as a result of not being circumcised but when challenged, are not able to provide even one name or case history. The best they have been able to do is provide a case history of an 82 year old man that died of untreated penile cancer. "Ain't the same, folks!" and there is now a cure for the virus that causes penile cancer. (Gardisil manufactured by Merck Pharmaceuticals)
|It just made me wonder how many of these deaths happen, but are reported as anesthesia-related deaths and not circ-related deaths.|

I've never seen anyone die in a car accident either, but I don't need a list of the names of victims to know that it happens.
Good luck to you, Kathryn - sounds like this so-called nurse more closely fits the definition of Brick Wall.
