Way to try to pick apart what I said Maybe I should have phrased my statement differently- if that's the case, I apologize. Nobody, and I do mean NOBODY will convince me that a mother's intuition about a baby that hasn't even been born yet and her education or mis-education about circumcision (or any other medical issue, for that matter) will be more intelligent than sources and documents that prove actual statistics. That being said, I fully support moms who choose to circ and moms who choose not to circ, as long as they ARE educated as to the risks and benefits of each decision. http://www.aap.org/en-us/about-the-aap/aap-press-room/Pages/Newborn-Male-Circumcision.aspx?nfstatus=401&nftoken=00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000&nfstatusdescription=ERROR%3a+No+local+token"
Wasn't trying to pick apart anything. Their recommendation is NOT to circ - only that benefits outweigh risks. I didn't pick apart anything - I was more thorough....the rest of what I wrote was to the OP. And I still
don't see how it's any change from what they said before.
And you will not educate me on anything ot do with this, I can promise you that. I can't even begin to tell you how many obsessive hours I spent researching it because I wanted to be sure. I've looked into the flaws in the African research study that was ended early & not done to completion. Are you ware the men who got circs were not sexually active for aperiod of approx 2 months & received counselling on safe sex practices & received condoms? Far from convincing that the circ had anythign to do with it - but it sure seems the researchers were desperate for teh "right" result.
So anyone who circs can go ahead & distrust God or nature or whatever you believe in. *I* personally think that when all is said & done the fact is we aren't born with extra defective body parts as standard issue.
I also think if you've never looked into the sale of infant foreskin for medical & cosmetic procedures (and uber expensive prescription wrinkle creams) you really ought to - because you might better have some idea why
they'd promote it & who might be in a position to benefit if more infant foreskins are made available.
