<<The state Health Department has issued guidelines for the safe practice of oral-suction circumcision>>

<<The centuries-old practice, called metzizah bi peh or metzitzah b'peh, involves a mohel using his mouth to suction blood from the wound after the foreskin is removed.>>

I'm just. I had to tell someone I read this. While trying to be sensitive to the belief system of others, I really, really could have gone far longer in my life had I not known about this.

So of course, I turn around and inflict it upon my internet friends and family.

My e-mail box is now chock full of articles about using circumcision to stop HIV.  I find this so appalling that I have feared to even read some of the articles.  I guess after this thread, I am going to have to do some homework.  I am just so sad that in this day and time, that we have come to "butchering" to stop the spread of HIV.  It now seems that humans have only come out of the caves yesterday, I guess.

Having never been butchered; I have on so very many occasions been grateful that I came from a poor family that couldn't afford this primitive exercise in child birth. 

Now, reading this from Jonathan, I am just sick, and in total agreement with Ann,  THIS THREAD SUCKS!

This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

And to think I've always wanted to be Jewish. Now I think I'll settle for being with someone Jewish. Something about the sight of those earnest tortured scruffy all-black-wearing chain-smoking over-caffeinated philosophy grad students around Washington Square and Washington Heights... mmmmm....
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

Were there clinical trials conducted to determine the effectiveness of this method. If so, please provide link. 

And the training classes must have been/be really "interesting."
