To Snip Or Not To Snip?
posted:
People have always expressed strong opinions about circumcision.  Is the practice really outdated or are there medical reasons to support it?  Some medical research in Africa indicates that circumcision lowers the transmisison of HIV among male hetrosexuals - although there's no American studies like that.  Pediatricans no longer recommend it and the practice has declined drastically in recent years down to 50%.   So what are new parents to do?


This illustration was created for the Mother Jones and art directed by the fabulous Tim Luddy.  It will be in the March/April issue and hits the stands on February 18th.
