  5. A mohel should be considered a healthcare worker and as such have mandatory health testing.

  6. All moyals should have to under go regular testing for STDs & be certified & have the certification updated with each retesting. If they do not have a valid updated certification they should not be allowed to perform a bris.

  7. Bizarre practice. Circumcision, yes, this practice, no.

  8. The circumcision is not the problem. It is this particular practice that should be stopped. No place to justify this halachally

  10. This is absolutely disgusting I read about this a few weeks ago and was so shocked, this is what happens when people add to the laws of G-d this sucking process is pure superstition and not part of Tanakh or Torah

  13. My son was circumcised in ’82. All 3 of my Grandsons were circumcised. The Moyals were Orthodox. They used bacitracin, and a very thin, gauze like, bandage. There was no mouth used, and had I seen the Moyals attempting that, I would have been arrested for assault!

  14. Fine on the easy side of the debate. What then is the difficult argument? Anyone know it? I sure don't.

  15. Circumcision is usually a healthy thing to do.It allegedly reduces infection and cancer by stopping secretions under the foreskin.However there is no reason for mouth contact so it should be banned.All circumcisers should be medically qualified.

  16. This means these boys will have many questions and concerns when they get older. The lack of care by these people to prevent such things is atrocious, and I'll be honest I'd much rather a medical professional perform a circumcision than anyone else. The child may feel better if it is done that way, as doctors can use anesthesia to locally numb the area before it's surgically altered.
