Predation of children

Re: Foreskin rally, April 12-18

Thank you for your reasonable article on the new circumcision clinic in Victoria. I was proud of B.C. when it stopped funding circumcision way back in 1984. I was present at the rally on Friday, where we protested the predation of innocent children by a person who can no longer be considered a doctor because he has violated all the tenets of ethical medical care. He preys on newborns by feeding inaccurate information to ignorant, unsuspecting parents. Happily, most parents are quite well informed in Victoria, so it should fall on the medical profession to discipline this “doctor.” But they usually do not.
