Another Circumcision Death...
9
Wed, 09-23-2009 - 8:13pm

A death in 2008 which appears to have only made the news now because the parents are suing.

Even one death caused by circumcision is one too many; quite apart from the fact that all infant circumcisions destroy a boy's protection from infection in childhood and will seriously compromise his future sex life as an adult.


A senseless act committed in parental love and corporate ignorance makes this event a total tragedy, in every sense of the word.

This should have been front page news, on every morning show, etc.

Regarding the corporate/medical negligence - all I can say is in my anatomy class, both of my books have contained males WITH their foreskin.

The defense lawyer is going to go at the angle of the negligence of the parents.

"I can assure you my brief exposure to teaching has not convinced me that a doctor would not think the foreskin was natural.
