The Continuing Violent Sexual Assault Upon Male Babies by Their Parents and Doctors

Cuedus just brought up circumcision in his journal and thereby reminded me that it's been almost a month since I last gave my "Stop Assaulting Male Babies" speech to anyone, and even longer than that since I last gave it here on LiveJournal. So it's time to repeat it.
"Parents should be wary of anyone who tries to retract their child's foreskin, and especially wary of anyone who wants to cut it off. Human foreskins are in great demand for any number of commercial enterprises, and the marketing of purloined baby foreskins is a multimillion-dollar-a-year industry. . . .
The after market for human foreskin is where the real money is made. Foreskins are sold to biomedical companies, which use them in the manufacture of insulin. They're also sold to middlemen, who package them for sale to research companies that in turn use them for biochemical analysis. Corporations such as Advanced Tissue Sciences (ATS), Organogenesis, BioSurface Technology, Genzyme, and Ortec International are taking cells from amputated foreskins and experimenting with artificial skin. Products like Dermagraft-TC, which sells for about $3,000 per square foot, are grown from the cells in infant foreskins and used as a temporary wound covering for burn patients. One foreskin contains enough genetic material to grow 250,000 square feet of skin."

Also see plenty of other websites on the subject.

The vast majority of circumcisions are performed without anaesthetic, upon defenseless babies, without consent.
"Are parents told that their baby's foreskin will be sold? Are they asked if their baby's foreskin may be sold?

Who is the legal owner of a baby's foreskin after it's been cut off? (Who is the legal owner of a baby's foreskin before it's cut off?)

Is it ethical to cut off a baby's foreskin, charge his parents for the operation, sell his foreskin without telling his parents, and keep the money? Is it legal?

Are the foreskins of children and adults being sold too?

Are other parts of people's bodies being cut off -- or out -- and sold without their knowledge or consent?

If someone cuts part of another person's body off -- or out -- and sells it without obtaining signed legal consent from the person cut, and the person who buys it makes money from it, who does that money rightfully belong to?

Do Diane Sawyer and Bill Kurtis (Investigative Reports) know about this?"

from "Foreskins for Sale"
To cut off a person's body part without their permission should not be legal. It's illegal in the United States for a parent to lick or suck a baby boy's foreskin, yet it's perfectly legal for the same parent to CHOP IT OFF. Think that reasoning over a while.
