Baby Foreskins used in Medical Products

Wow is all I could say....read this: http://crunchydomesticgoddess.com/2009/05/28/babies-foreskins-used-to-make-cosmetics-is-this-ethical/ They are using baby foreskins in medical products, yet parents are paying to have them removed...wow...I don't even know what to say to this. Of course, we never had to make this decision with Claire but I would never have a boy circumcised after reading this book called As Nature Made Him about a botched circumcision. I'd highly recommend reading this book. It is very eye-opening

I have read a few blubs about people trying to get circumcisions renamed to "penis reduction surgery" because that's really what they are. What do you think? I would advise anyone who insisted on having one done, to not do it in a hospital do it, but have a Jewish official who has done several to do one at your home...after breastfeeding is established, of course!

How ignorant are people? Do they think a piece of skin on a vital organ is not necessary? I can't imagine how a doctor could actually convince people of this obscure practice. I mean, as a parent would you do the equivalent to a baby girl just because your doctor says you should?

Secondly, using this piece of skin for cosmetic products sounds odd. Why not use stem cells for cosmetic purposes...
