Circ campaigner caught with child porn

Police raided a circumcision promoter’s home. The man was caught with a hoard of child porn. They found nine-hours' worth of clips showing boys as young as 11 engaging in sex acts. These videos ranked at the second-highest level of severity. He admitted 3 counts of possession of indecent photographs of a child.

The circumcision status of their sons was also found to significantly influence their recommendation.

California Passes Pro-Circumcision Bill

California legislators voted to pass AB-768, which was co-authored by two democratic legislators, Mike Gatto, Fiona Ma., and co-developed with representative Brad Sherman. It's being put forth as an “urgency bill". AB-768 is endorsing a practice that's actively cautioned against by well-respected medical associations from the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Africa may be viewed as the new source of discarded virgin foreskins to sustain a multi-million-dollar industry. Discarded human foreskins are used in the cosmetics industry, in the manufacture of insulin and artificial skin.

U.S. paying for mass circumcisions

USAID is paying for circumcisions in Swaziland. $15-million to circumcise 160,000 men and teens within a year. "Recruiters" are deployed nationwide, combing the streets, persuading men to go to clinics or mobile surgical units housed in tents--their message backed up by a huge advertising campaign.

Man Says: "nice to have
sex without condoms."

Interestingly, Swaziland is one of the many African countries where HIV is more prevalent in circumcised men. See p.256, table 14.10
