    Doctor and Hospital Settle Circumcision Lawsuit
    Stage Set for Men to Sue for Being Circumcised as Infants

    MND NEWSWIRE

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    April 29, 2003

    SUFFOLK COUNTY, New York – After a two-and-a-half year legal battle with Plaintiff William G. Stowell, the doctor and hospital have settled the landmark circumcision case brought against them. The terms of the settlements have not been publicly disclosed. Twenty-one-year old Stowell filed suit December 19, 2000, in the U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, against the hospital where he was circumcised and the physician who circumcised him as a newborn.

    Stowell, born on December 22, 1981, in West Islip, NY, was circumcised the following day by his mother’s obstetrician. This case presented the issue of the legal validity of consent for circumcision obtained by a nurse from a mother who was debilitated by the effects of a Caesarian section and painkillers. It also questioned whether a physician could legally and ethically remove healthy, normal tissue from a non-consenting minor for non-therapeutic reasons.

    David J. Llewellyn, one of Plaintiff Stowell’s attorneys, said, “William and I are very happy that we were able to resolve this case with both the hospital and the doctor. While a settlement is never an admission of liability, I believe it shows that our allegations were taken seriously. Never again can someone say that a young man who is dissatisfied with his circumcision as an infant is being frivolous when he objects to his mutilation and brings suit to obtain justice. This case should send a message to doctors that they run the risk of a lawsuit each time they circumcise an infant for non-therapeutic reasons, particularly when they rely on the hospital to obtain consent the day after birth. Social or cosmetic concerns provide no justification for harmful surgery. I would expect that this is just the first of many cases that will be brought by angry circumcised young men against their circumcisers.”

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) first acknowledged that there was no medical justification for routine circumcision in 1971. In 1999, the AAP reaffirmed that it does not recommend routine circumcision. The American Medical Association concurred in 2000, calling routine circumcision “non-therapeutic.” No national or international medical organization recommends routine circumcision.

    Well when I was born, a print was taken of my feet. Did anyone consult me before doing this? Noooooooooo!!!! They took ink prints of me and pictures of me like I was a common criminal. Surely there were some rights violated there. Let me run out and find a liberal lawyer and sue.

      And, there were probably some nude photos involved, too [Eek!] [Eek!] [Eek!]

        All that I know is that it is in the Old Testament of the Bible that circumsicion first was practiced. It was as seal of a pact with God and one of the Great Men Of The Bible. I think that it might have been Abraham. But in my opinion the people can wait until the child can decide for itself.
        May the Lord shine his light upon your life. Trust in him and you will live for eternity.

          Can we file suit against the mother for getting pregnant with such a dumbass? After all, our rights to living in a land without idiots was tremendously violated here.

            No, I don't think so. Being less than a day old & not knowing or remembering the pain is fine with me. Give me knowledge of what is about to take place between a sharp instrument & my instrument & I'm going to vote not just no but h*!! no! [Eek!] [Frown]
