Circumcision Declines: Another Symptom of Illegal Aliens

By Debbie Schlussel
Yet another interesting symptom of the massive illegal alien migration into America: Fewer American males are circumcised. And that’s a health concern.
Even though circumcision has been proven to help prevent the spread of AIDS and lower chances of certain types of cancers (like penile cancer) and urinary tract infections, doctors say that immigration (and liberals) have led to circumcision of American males to drop from a rate of 90% in the ’70s to 57%, today. Males in Latino and Asian countries (including Muslim countries, like Malaysia–even though Muslims are supposed to circumcise) are not circumcised, and they are exporting that trend here as they enter our borders.
AP reports:

In some states, the rate is well below 50 percent.
Experts say immigration patterns play the biggest role in the decline, which is steepest in Western states with big populations from Asian and Latin American countries where circumcision is uncommon.
Circumcision remains the nation’s most common surgery, and the United States is still one of the few developed countries where a majority of baby boys are circumcised….
About one in three males worldwide is circumcised. In the United States, the rates vary widely by region.
It is most prevalent in the upper Midwest. In 2004, according to data compiled by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 79 percent of newborn boys in the Midwest were circumcised before leaving the hospital. Michigan and Kentucky had the highest rates, at 85 percent.
In the fast-growing West, the rate declined dramatically – from 64 percent in 1979 to just under 32 percent in 2004.
In California, the rate of hospital circumcisions among newborns was 21 percent. California – which has more immigrants than any other state – had the lowest circumcision rate in the study, which had comprehensive data on only 27 states.
The decline coincides with rising immigration from Asia and Latin America
….
Circumcision was uncommon in 35-year-old Usha Toland’s family, which has roots in India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia.

Oh, and liberals and their holistic medicine and other psychobabble also contribute to the decline:

The trend has also accompanied a change in Americans’ attitudes toward medicine and their bodies.
“The rates of drug-free labor and breast-feeding all rose during the 1980s, while the initial declines in male circumcision rates began during the 1980s as well,” said Katharine Barrett, an anthropology lecturer at Stanford University. “It may have been part and parcel of the wider effort to reclaim bodies – adult female and infant male – from unnecessary and potentially harmful medical interventions.”

Sad to say, some of the lefties who populate my religion–which mandates circumcision–are contributing to the problem with a “cut-less” bris (Jewish circumcision rite):

On the eighth day of her son’s life, Julia Query welcomed friends and family to celebrate his birth and honor their Jewish heritage.
But there was no crying, no scalpel, no blood, no “mohel” – the person who traditionally performs ritual circumcisions in the Jewish faith. In fact, Elijah Rose’s “bris” differed markedly from the ceremony long used to initiate Jewish boys into a covenant with God: There was no circumcision.
“I knew before I was even pregnant that I would not circumcise,” said Query, 39, a San Francisco filmmaker whose son was born in 2002. “It’s not like you’re just cutting a piece of paper off a pad – there’s no ‘cut here’ line. It’s not made to be cut off, and I would never, ever do that to my baby.”

“some of the most despicable customs and practices in human history.”
Excuse me, but we were talking out “the cut.” Not other customs, but if you want to trade customs, I could tell you a few about your side of the coin.
Customs depends what viewpoint you’re looking at. I always say, “When in Rome…”
HOWEVER, it’s all about EVOLUTION, i.e. cultural – Societal – Evolution, its’t it?
Part of that is to think of the “Common Good” as Xena says. Wouldn’t that include thinking of any pain inflicted on your nearest and dearest, such as the “circumscision of the newborn human male?”
Anywhoo, others can’t do anything or force Jews to stop their religious “habits” – let’s just stop trying to inflict it on the rest of us – under the excuse of health.
As I understand it, the Indigenous Peoples,in the Western Hemisphere, were pretty healthy specimens – AND THEY WEREN’T CIRCUMSCISED.

Steve Ventry–Your ignorance is dangerous and frightening. Did you know that shortly after 9/11, an Indian man wearing a turban was gunned down at a gas station in Dallas by someone who had your same mind-set? The killer considered *anyone* who had dark skin and wore a turban to be a “terrorist.” The man who was killed was a peaceful Hindu who had nothing to do with 9/11 or Muslim extremism. However, his killer thought that the Indian man “looked the part,” and now three children have no father and the killer is in jail for life. This is where ignorance and hate, in the absence of facts and education, lead. You obviously have Internet access; there is no reason to be so ill-informed. I think hatred is your hobby. Is that true? If so, what are you accomplishing? What will be your legacy?

MMC on June 21, 2007 at 1:24 pm

” can’t believe no one here mentioned “schmegma,” either. The definition alone will answer questions for you re: Aids,”

In case you don’t know: AIDS is a new disease.
So, again, I ask, what has AIDS got to do with it?
Someone here stated that the Father of our great religion, Abraham. But you should read your sacred books, etc., because ole Abe was a Sumerian, and his people did not practice circumscision – until after they had been under the influence of the ancient Egyptians.
It wasn’t until the Exodus and Moses that the Hebrews began the custom.

“God knows what He’s doing! And who the hell cares what Europeans are doing, anyway. ”
Yes, God knew what he was doing – he gave the human male a foreskin!
God gives – and man takes away.

I agree with you. If circumcision were so good, it could have peeled off like the umbilical cord remnants do. Also note that new born Jews, Mohammedans and now Christians who endorse that practice have no choice in the matter, and can’t reverse it after they’re grown up. OTOH, adult men aren’t normally likely to get a circumcision.
IMO, opening this can of worms was moronic. After all, all Mohammedans circumcize, while among Infidels, Jews and some Christians do, while others don’t. So what it does is split anti-Islamic opinion on something that one couldn’t get more private about – and we aren’t even talking destructive behavior, like shacking up, or bestiality. Also, it’s inaccurate to say that there are any Muslims who don’t do it – the Malaysians cited above could easily be Chinese or Tamil Malaysians – Usha Toland in the story above is NOT a Mohammedan name.
The AIDS argument is also unfounded – usually, thats driven by promiscuous sex. There have been lots of non-Muslim societies worldwide, and in medeval Christian Europe – both Catholic and Protestant – circumcisions weren’t the norm, and yet, there weren’t widespread cases of AIDS anywhere in the world before the 20th century.

Infidel Pride on June 21, 2007 at 1:44 pm

MMC, your arrogance is stellar. From a few sentences, you’ve determined that I’m hateful, uneducated, without facts, ill-informed, ignorant, that my ignorance is dangerous and frightening, that I don’t know the difference between hindus and muslims, and that it’s my fault somebody got shot. If I find myself unemployed, I will be happy to spend the rest of my life responding to all your bullshit.

steve ventry on June 21, 2007 at 1:46 pm

don’t think you could be jewish without a circumcision. Of course no one will be reading this ’cause I was unable to post yesterday but what the heck!

sandy on June 21, 2007 at 1:48 pm

Steve Ventry–
“maagour, YOU ARROGANT PRICK. You muslims have a lot of nerve preaching about CLEANLINESS while your people SLAUGHTER MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN, AND BABIES, ALL AROUND THE WORLD. What stellar arrogance! If I’m not mistaken, EVERY CONFLICT ON EARTH right now is due to muslims gutting people like animals, and you have the nerve to preach about “cleanliness”?? HA!”
Is this the writing of a reasonable person, or of someone consumed and blinded by hate? The majority of Muslims do not slaughter people any more than the majority of American Causasians blow up government buildings.

MMC on June 21, 2007 at 2:20 pm

I’m not “blinded by hate”, you’re being naive. Muslims are waiting patiently, intentionally having families as large as possible, till they become 30% or so and start imposing sharia or some level of domination over us. The “peaceful muslims” are racial/religious SUPREMACISTS. Apparently, you don’t have a problem with supremacy or separatism, as long as it’s not White.

steve ventry on June 21, 2007 at 2:41 pm

Ventry:
Dude, you’re certifiably insane. People’s Exhibit A:
“Muslims are waiting patiently, intentionally having families as large as possible, till they become 30% or so and start imposing sharia or some level of domination over us.”
The People rest, your honor.

Ouch painful memories of being 8 days old.

Ripper on June 21, 2007 at 4:15 pm

you can have my foreskin …when you can cut it from my dead body! its inhumane. i wish i would have never done it my son. i mean you dont want to cut your pus …right! maybe those lips harbour deseases too … i say we start a new movement “labia removal” ater all it would clean up the area……..

jyd on June 21, 2007 at 4:35 pm

we need to thin the world herd!

jyd on June 21, 2007 at 4:39 pm

Most of you are the only ones who are ever going to see it, so what difference does it make? Some of us have to keep up appearances.

steve ventry on June 21, 2007 at 4:53 pm

Peaceful Islam fans, watch how well things are going in Sweden. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byQD8VPhvdM

There are religious and health reasons supporting circumcision, but none are so compelling as AESTHETICS. A penis is not a thing of beauty, but if well-groomed, can be charming in its functionality.
I’m a nurse; I’ve seen your shaggy weenies. Please — get cut. It will do you a world of good.

AmericanJewess on June 21, 2007 at 5:57 pm

Yes! The Penis is a thing of beauty. And so are the labias, everything that God has created.
If being in the medical profession has given you a contempt for God’s work, keep it to yourself.
THis is nonsense. YOu say one thing about men’s organs and being better looking when cut, and then, someone else, will come along, and say women’s parts will be better looking cut as well.
And all for the sake of better health (like people here, did already). See what I mean?
Everybody, leave the human parts alone. Already!
Weeell, this has been fun, while it lasted.

Steve ventry:
Thnx for the Sweden clip – it’s the same in France and all over Europe. It’s a good reality check for the liberal/leftists, but they’ll deny it until there is a knife at their throat – courtesy of the Religion of Peace.

CarpeDiem on June 21, 2007 at 8:41 pm

Whaaa? No circumcision of the heart???
After all, it it’s not what you have, but what you knead that brings bread – Rabbi Schlomo

ReallyReallyStupid on June 21, 2007 at 10:36 pm

Steve ventry, let me answer your question with another question.
Which race does not rape its people? Does it make it right? No.
My point being, whatever the race, supremacy is just very juvenile and ignorant..if I can even call it that.
I am mixed and have traveled a lot, and I can confidently say that some races to practice it more than others.

markccu on June 22, 2007 at 8:20 am

btw, when I said “rape its people”, I didnt mean it in the stupid liberal hippie way. I meant it as in…”commit rape” on unsuspecting women/men.

markccu on June 22, 2007 at 8:21 am

Well thank heavens it’s on the decline! The practice is stupid and cruel, not to mention that it deprives newborns the right to decide this for themselves as an adult. Female babies are protected from routine genital mutilation. Baby boys deserve the same protection.

Cyn on November 9, 2009 at 10:22 am

This article lacks intelligence in a big way. The whole “circumcision prevents UTI’s” thing is such a weak argument, when it’s still a low percentage, and UTI’s are easily treated with antibiotics. And as for the AIDS thing, CONDOMS prevent the spread of AIDS far better, but that study wasn’t done properly anyways. They didn’t even test the mens partners, or track their lifestyles; they ended the study early, and on and on. You should research the truth about those two studies that the media ran wild with.

And I’m very curious to know if you are even aware of the purpose of the foreskin…? Probably not, since you’re clearly so ignorant already.

If a MAN wants to undergo the cosmetic procedure of removing his foreskin, I wish him the best; but to forcibly remove a perfectly functional and healthy body part on a helpless infant because YOU don’t like the look of his penis, is perverted and sick. Learn the facts.

SMART Canadian on May 1, 2010 at 8:49 pm

Debbie is a sick woman and as bad as those African Muslims who want baby girls to be circumcised. Male Genital Mutilation is as bad as some forms of female genital mutilation. Circumcision of ANYONE male or female under the age of 18 is by DEFINITION a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY unless there is an exceptional medical situation that makes it needed. If people want to get circumcised, they should have to wait till they’re 18 just like they have to to get genital piercings.
Infant Circumcision is a BARBARIC practice like Human Sacrafice or Hindus killing a widow after her husband dies. Routine Infant Circumcision has NO PLACE in 21st Century Civilized Society. If somebody wants practices like FORCED INFANT CIRCUMCISION, they they should move to Saudi Arabia where 100% of boys are maybe 1% of girls are circumcised. Get these BARBARIC practices OUT OF THE US.

Jack on April 30, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Hi Debbie, since you appreciate the benefits of male circumcision, you must have your clit done (hoodectomy, removal of the prepuce of the clitoris) for the same reason. For benefits of true female circumcision also known as hoodectomy see http://www.umatia.org/2011/Safe%20Female%20circumcision.doc

I am a happily circumcised Muslim woman and don’t have a smelly piece of skin covering my clit. I chose to have it removed when it gave me some problems including a bad smell which my husband found irritating and often complained about when we had oral sex. It also gave me painful irritations once in a while. Now my clit’s exposed and it’s great, good hygiene, super sex!

Roze on April 5, 2013 at 2:54 pm

why don’t you get circumcised your vagina instead of forcing innocent boys and men for the mutilation? the hoodectomy is equivalent to removing of the foreskin.

circumcision reduces the sexual pleasure

it doesn’t have any advantage just wash it that’s all a person has to do.
you are an idiot.

Albert on January 23, 2014 at 1:22 pm

@Roze
ROFL xD hahaha
OMG whoever you are I am now your fan. you said well :)
