I saw this article on the Pregnancy & Parenting site this week that talks about how circumcision can prevent HPV.

I think you'll be proved wrong, MaiTai... but we'll wait and see.

Do you have a link to that statement from the CDC?

"Even the CDC says the only reason the circumcision rates are down is because of the influx of (illegal) aliens that do not circumcise."

That is simply not true.

Every time I see one of those commercials for the HPV vaccine, I wonder why we should need a vaccine in America, if circumcision prevented it?

Pro-circ articles only give you unproven information, with no solid information and no expert support from the ACS.
