CDC is coming after your foreskin - Rich

It seemed like circumcision was rightly about to lose its place in American culture.

The American Medical Association spoke out about the US-centric procedure in 1999, saying:

"Virtually all current policy statements from specialty societies and medical organizations do not recommend routine neonatal circumcision, and support the provision of accurate and unbiased
information to parents to inform their choice."

Vastly less common in Europe and of dubious medical benefit, the controversial procedure has steadily been losing ground among people who might have opted for it for non-religious reasons. But that trend may begin reversing again, thanks to a new recommendation from the CDC.

Dr. Peter Kilmarx, chief of epidemiology for the division of HIV/AIDS prevention at the CDC, looks to be starting a new campaign to throw the baby's foreskin out with the bathwater, stating
<http://inquisitr.com/5gCu5> :

"We have a significant HIV epidemic in this country, and we really need to look carefully at any potential intervention tthat could be another tool in the toolbox we use to address the epidemic," Kilmarx told the newspaper. "What we've heard from our consultants is that there would be a benefit for infants from infant circumcision and that the benefits outweigh the risks."

Strangely, other Western countries have neglected to routinely circumcise babies and don't seem to be suffering rates of HIV significantly higher than those of the US. It's also fairly clear at
this point that the odds of contracting HIV from standard man/woman banging <http://inquisitr.com/vTj> are pretty low. What do you think- barbaric practice, or necessary protection for the locker room?

  1. The passage:
    "don't seem to be suffering rates of HIV significantly higher than those of the US"
    is misleading. The US has by far the HIGHEST rate of HIV infection in the industrialized world.

A Woman Speaks about Being Circumcised as a Woman

Circumcision Played on the air August 31

Even if you can't bear to watch it, just listen. Let this baby's cries speak to your soul. If you can not watch this circumcision be aware that that tells you something very important. It should NOT BE DONE. This baby and many, many other baby boys have experienced this brutality. If you can't watch it or listen to it, remember that the majority of men in our lives experienced this. His penis was being mutilated for no medical or logical reason, against his will, without his consent. This happens to him at the moment that the only thing he needed was to be in their mother's arms, at her breast.
"If you have been abused it is a hard thing for you to have a lot of compassion for yourself but if you can, think about the poor defenseless children who are going to come after you who could have a chance at happiness if you are able to face your own trauma. And face it realistically so we don't have to keep doing this. The reason we keep doing this is that we are trying to justify our pain." --Veronica Monet

Discussing the Canadian researcher who hooked up babies and monitored their brains while being circumcised to learn the tragic impact on babies, and who was forced to destroy the research, accused of inappropriate research on babies, Jody McLaughlin, Publisher, "Compleat Mother" told me (Janel): someone should hook up the people who are DOING the circumcision, the adult, the doctor, and see what their brains are doing. Better yet, she added, they could use that equipment they use to research erections and monitor their physiological, sexual response to mutilating a helpless baby. Brilliant, she is so brilliant. Any researchers want to take it on? Any adult doctors WILLING to mutilate baby boys for no good reason willing to be the subjects? Should we give them a choice? Should THEY have a choice while baby boys don't?

Leave the Cord and Placenta Intact -- Stop cutting!!

"Caution! because just where we least expect it, there are civilized barbarians, which we don't entrust our children." Listen to podcast of Lynn Reed about the many ways American doctors cut women and babies (boys and girls).

Thank you, Francesca Geppert.

2. Early clumping stops abruptly natural placental transfusion, and into placenta remains from 30 to 50% of blood for the child.

3. Umbilical cord, after birth too, remainss an exchange channel between mother and child, bringing nourishment and oxygen to the newborn, removing its waste products,until his body will be not able to breathe effectively and to receive oxygen by langs and no more from ombilical arteries.

4. Umbilical cord and stem cells must be leave to the owner!!!!

5.If umbilical cord has cutted before timely, baby will be founded, suddenly, without oxygen and he will live a distressing experience of suffocation ( with the risk of brain damage by anoxia).

6. Reflection is that baby will be forced to inhale much air that, in contact with his mucosal, will causes a terrible burning, like a scalding.

7. late cut of ombilical cord or no cut is the physiological process

8. Immediate cut (early) is an invasive procedure which must be justified; in natural childbirth isn't justified. (O.M.S. Health organization world) - 1985

9. These recommendations of O.M.S even if, are entered in Midwifery story like "Scientific evidence" are not accept and apply in departments of obstetrics

10. Caution! because just where we least expect it, there are civilized barbarians, which we don't entrust our children.

11. There's no need to cut ombilical cord

12. Most simple thing to do is NOT TO DO
Finally they suggest the natural detachment of ombilical cord.

I made my best to give you a good translation, could you forgive me if it will result not perfect.

God bless you
