I'm new here, so I hope I'm complying with all the rules regarding posting an article.
Anyway, below is an article that a facebook friend posted regarding a proposed circumcision ban in San Francisco. She, a practicing Jewish woman, feels this is an example of "blatant antisemitism". Do you agree?
The study is interesting. Tangentially related: I remember my mother telling me that they used to use the circumcised foreskin tissue for testing when she worked as a microbiologist at a hospital. Only problem is, I can't quite remember what they were testing for. If I recall correctly, it was herpes. Using foreskin tissue, they were able to test for herpes with a much quicker turn-around time. If it was diagnosed quickly enough, the doctors could take steps to reduce the chances of birth-acquired herpes. Sadly (as is probably apparent) I am not competent to evaluate the pros and cons of this. I'd have to ask my mom about the details.
