True, but we all knew that anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> At least he got anesthesia (unlike infants). I figure this will come back to bite him big time anyway. Give him a few months, let him heal up and go start having sex again.....he'll realize the error of his ways then. Sadly he can't even get it back. At least he made the decision himself though and can't blame it on anyone else.<br><br>
I cant fathom wanting that surgery. No freaking way. *shudder* Reading that article made me sick. To think it could influence one person to circ their baby. Ugh!

God that makes me sick. This HIV propaganda in Africa seems so insurmountable. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

"If circumcision prevents AIDS, then why are all my friends dead?"

A public health policy that creates open wounds on African men en masse will NO DOUBT lead to increased AIDS transmission! This is so morally irresponsible! I wonder what they need all those foreskins for? Just think of the carnage, the post op infections, etc. etc.

"Circumcised men are relatively well protected against HIV" ??? What an absurd and irresponsible statement!! This sort of thing will only lead to many more deaths. But then again, this is what many of us have been saying all along.

He can blame the people who spread myths about circumcision.

Yep, this is <i>exactly</i> what we've been saying all along.<br><br>
Halperin, Bailey, Auvert and all the other penis-cutting obsessionists are going to be responsible for thousands of deaths thanks to this.<br><br>
They should be ashamed of themselves, what did they think was going to happen with the rubbish they put out? Or perhaps that's what they intended? Who knows.
