    2003 British Medical Association

    “The BMA does not believe that parental preference alone constitutes sufficient grounds for performing a surgical procedure on a child unable to express his own view. . . . Parental preference must be weighed in terms of the child's interests. . . . The BMA considers that the evidence concerning health benefit from non-therapeutic circumcision is insufficient for this alone to be a justification for doing it. . . . Some doctors may wish to not perform circumcisions for reasons of conscience. Doctors are under no obligation to comply with a request to circumcise a child.”

    2002 Royal Australasian College of Physicians

    “After extensive review of the literature the RACP reaffirms that there is no medical indication for routine male circumcision. The possibility that routine circumcision may contravene human rights has been raised because circumcision is performed on a minor and is without proven medical benefit. . . . Review of the literature in relation to risks and benefits shows there is no evidence of benefit outweighing harm for circumcision as a routine procedure.”

    2002 Canadian Paediatric Society (reaffirmed 1996 position)

    “Circumcision of newborns should not be routinely performed.”

    2000 American Medical Association

    “The AMA supports the general principles of the 1999 Circumcision Policy Statement of the American Academy of Pediatrics.”

    1999 American Academy of Pediatrics

    “Existing scientific evidence demonstrates potential medical benefits of newborn male circumcision; however, these data are not sufficient to recommend routine neonatal circumcision.”

    1996 Australian College of Paediatrics

    “The Australasian Association of Paediatric Surgeons has informed the College that ‘neonatal male circumcision has no medical indication. It is a traumatic procedure performed without anaesthesia to remove a normal functional and protective prepuce [foreskin].’ ”

    1996 Australasian Association of Paediatric Surgeons

    “We do not support the removal of a normal part of the body, unless there are definite indications to justify the complications and risks which may arise. In particular, we are opposed to male children being subjected to a procedure, which had they been old enough to consider the advantages and disadvantages, may well have opted to reject the operation and retain their prepuce [foreskin]....The 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states that ‘State parties should take all effective and appropriate measures with a view to abolishing traditional practices prejudicial to the health of children.’ ”


    Circumcision and HIV

    National medical organizations unanimously find no proven medical benefit for circumcision and do not recommend it
    Anything more recent than half a decade old or more? The Bulletin by the WHO was from 2008 and the 25 year study listed earlier was from the same year.

    I'd like to keep this discussion about current events and not ancient history as the science community times things.

    The Central Union for Child Welfare considers that circumcision of boys that violates the personal integrity of the boys is not acceptable unless it is done for medical reasons to treat an illness. The basis for the measures of a society must be an unconditional respect for the bodily integrity of an under-aged person.

    Also, what I am seeing is that this isn't about whether or not circumcision has a benefit; it's about consent issues; an entirely different set of issues.

    Human Foreskins are Big Business for Cosmetics

    In the business of vanity almost anything goes. Creams, lotions, and cosmetics are reported to be made out many things that most people would be repulsed by. Fish scales in lipsticks, cow placenta in anti-aging products, crushed female cochineal insects in shampoo, and human foreskin in
    face cream.

    Foreskin fibroblasts are used to grow and cultivate new cells that are then used for a variety of purposes. From the fibroblasts new skin for burn victims can be grown, skin to cover diabetic ulcers, and controversially it is also used to make cosmetic creams and collagens. One foreskin can be used for decades to grow $100,000 worth of fibroblasts.

    Debate is growing over the ethics of using human foreskins for cosmetic purposes. One such cosmetic company, SkinMedica is raising a stir over their use of the growth hormone left over from growing artificial skin from foreskin fibroblasts. Dr. Fitzpatrick, who invented SkinMedica, works with a supplier that uses foreskin fibroblast to make injectable collagen. The foreskins that he receives the growth hormone for are used especially for cosmetics rather than for growing new skin for medical patients

    Re: Call for higher circumcision rate

    Can we all agree on 1 thing:

    The foreskin is there for a reason, whatever that reason may be, God or whatever put it there for a reason.

    Whether it has been chopped off or not, just pledge this oath:

    I will use my penis to the best of my ability. I will use it morally and ethically. I will cuddle with it. I will snuggle with it. I will hold it at varying lenghts of time in public places and in private, that will make some feel uncomfortable. I will name him like a pet. I will see to it that he is well covered in any athletic sporting event. I will tell him size doesnt matter. I will tell him on good days how long he is and on bad days how I wished it was a good day again. I will scratch his brothers on a daily basis, hourly if possible. This I pledge, that this is my penis and my penis is part of me and I a part of it. Amen.
