I don't post on here, mostly lurk, but I saw this and wanted to get other's opinions. I currently don't have a child and just doing research before my DH and I start TTC in October.

I'll teach my son (and my DDs) to have safe sex and let him keep his foreskin.

The numbers don't add up. Your typical American man in his lifetime only has about 0.03% chance of becoming HIV positive by my count. Assuming he is heterosexual and not an IV drug user. I think they're trying to justify reinstating Medicaid. I do find it interesting that no other Western country is even toying with the idea. Thoughts as to why? Anyone?

Hi Jessica. First, welcome to the board and I do hope you will return and contribute whenever you can!


The African experiment: never completed and indecisive in itself, has no bearing upon nations in the developed world. In fact, revered medical bodies such as the BMA, have given no credence to any supposed value in circumcision.


If the CDC and/or the AAP were to revise their standpoint it would be nothing short of tragic, and the respect they currently hold within the world's medical fraternity would be seriously compromised.

I would not be suprised at all if they recommend it.

It is also important to note that the doctor on the NBC show misstated even the results of the flawed study.

I don’t know why the CDC would make such a decision, when it isn’t supported by factual information we already have on the US population. Ethically and morally there is no reason to remove parts of a healthy normal body, and most of the world agrees with this position.
