Part of then answer depends upon the mother's health (and diseases) during pregnancy.
And part of her health may depend upon the health of the people with whom she has had sex.

So not though unprotected sex then?

What are the incidence rates of STDs in babies?
Higher than it should be, sadly, in some areas.

I don't understand why circumcision instead of truckloads of free condoms.

Re: Doctor cuts off boys penis during circumcision

Forgive me for going slightly off topic, but this thread made me think of this video.
Patrick Stewart obviously must have led a bit of a sheltered life...

I'll take any groans for whatever reason on this. I'm not against circumcision. I'm just firmly against the practice of doing it to babies and children. There should be informed consent for elective procedures.

Perhaps I should have been more clear, the ownership of kids genitals, especially to cut bits off, should be banned.

Circumcision per se, fine with me if that's what the owner of the penis wants. And he is over 18.
Understand your point fully, but this is done for health reasons (right or wrong is different issue), and therefore falls under same category as vaccinations. Additionally, it should be done at very young age, actually 4 years is a bit old for this, 18 yrs old will be totally traumatised. I'm not a doctor but have friends who are.

I second this.

If a circumcision is done for health reasons then it's likely done under GA depending on the age.

Mostly it's religious reasons. How on earth you can relate it to a vaccination is anyone's guess. My mind is boggled. My flabber is also gasted.

The only (tenuous) link I see to vaccination is for boys, as well as girls, to have the HPV vaccination which then protects future sexual partners but it's a stretch to link it to circumcision.

Re: Doctor cuts off boys penis during circumcision

Absolutely ridiculous and sorry for that 4 y.o.

Waiting for the day the boy turns 'Legal' and sue's his Father for negligence. If the series of events described in the post are as they were in reality, the father of the boy is here to blame.

Re: Doctor cuts off boys penis during circumcision

My mother and father got me done when I was about 2 and a half years old - in a hospital in St Helens for medical reasons. I still have a vague memory of being held down while I was snipped.
My wife reckons that they chopped more off than they should have.
Never missed the foreskin bit - but the whole willy could be a bit difficult in the urinals.
Can they do transplants? Can you choose your donor?

Heard that circumcised males are also better lovers.
How about that?

(just trying to explain the groan you got from st2lemans)
Hubba, hubba!
On a more serious note, the slammer hammer was docked for medical reasons and not missed since, I can´t understand the fake outrage but I also can´t understand the silly religious reason either.

Re: Doctor cuts off boys penis during circumcision

Many fathers are idiots, but the doctor with the knife in his hand, who ostensibly got into, never mind graduated from, medical school, ought to use some of the sense he has to perform a procedure safely.

That website is sinister. Cutting baby dicks is sinister

Edit to add, ELECTIVE cutting of baby dicks is sinister if the baby had an infection and it went septic and there was a risk to the rest of the penis unless the infected foreskin removed, that's different .

Re: Doctor cuts off boys penis during circumcision

I had it done as an adult to address problems of ongoing bladder infections. I wish my parents had done it when I was a tot. Would have saved many painful moments trying to pee as an adult. And even under local anaesthetic it was bloody painful.

Disgusting and abhorrent practice. Should be banned worldwide. Excluding valid medical reasons ("i think it's cleaner" and "may prevent problems further along" are not valid reasons)

However, now you know how painful is for a tot.

Unless for medical reasons, the whole thing is cruel. But each to their own.

Exactly the same logic as has been misused for female circumcision.

Either you are sexist or you don't support the right of females to decide what is done to their bodies.


http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...-a7459291.html

Quote:
Lise Møller, chair of the Doctors' Association Ethics Board, said it was wrong to deny an individual the right to choose whether or not they wanted to be circumcised.

“To be circumcised should be an informed, personal choice," she said.

"It is most consistent with the individual’s right to self-determination that parents not be allowed to make this decision, but that it is left up to the individual when he has come of age."
