Rabbi infects baby with Herpes and baby dies

A two-week old boy died at a Brooklyn hospital in September after contracting herpes through a religious circumcision ritual that ignited controversy in 2005 after another infant died, the Daily News has learned.

The unidentified infant died Sept. 28, 2011, at Maimonides Hospital, according to a spokeswoman for the city Medical Examiner, who confirmed the death after a News inquiry.

The cause of death was listed as “disseminated herpes simplex virus Type 1, complicating ritual circumcision with oral suction.”
City officials declined to comment Friday.

It’s unclear who performed the circumcision.

The rabbi should be charged with murder.

Male circumcision, if performed for health reasons, should be done in a hospital by a doctor. For religious reasons? I am sure the gods are indifferent.

I was on another forum where there was a HUGE dispute about this. As always there's a gender based double standard in treating children or people but nothing ever seems to get done about it. This abhorrent practice should be banned and anyone found doing it should be arrested for attempted murder.

"Oral Suction" ? I thought circumcision was done with a knife ? This reads more like paedophilia - perhaps any Jewish members would care to enlighten me ?

That is assuming that it made any difference to him. I've never missed mine. I think those crazies in California who put weights on their ****s in a vane attempt to stretch their skin to have their foreskins back are completely off their tree. I'm sure their shrinks are making a bundle off these fruit loops.

Whales aren't Jewish?

If they are, was Jonah kosher?

I thought this were a simple case of Herpes transferred accidentally by unsterile instruments. Apparently there is an old Jewish ritual that has the Rabbi take the blood from the wound with his mouth. Paedophilia or child abuse by any other name.

Just like they scared people into getting the H1N1 vaccine?

After the foreskin is cut, it is removed by the rabbi with his teeth:

Circumcision, Talmud Style

We silly "Christians" used to supersize our male kids too, in the name of cleanliness and medical convenience I guess. But it was done in the O.R. and I don't remember anyone biting the end off mine..,...............oww, Jeez that's nasty.

A friend of mine didn't get supersized till he was an adult, and had a terrible, painful, time of it. No sex for quite some time. Hurt to pee. All that nice stuff.

Foreskinned is forewarned..................or something.

Wow, and some people on this forum talk about Muslims following a 'pedophile'; here we have religious leaders who bite the foreskin off babies.

Wow, just wow.

The gods gave men foreskins; we must cherish them. Evolution can't be wrong.

All other crass commentary aside, I feel for the parents. I hope they find comfort in their religious beliefs, especially given that they are a contributor in the baby's death. I'll also say that my wife and I (both theist agnostic) researched the issue of medical circumcision with our little guy (now an energetic 2 1/2 yr old) and opted to have it done, after reading up and consulting with physicians. But it was a Dr. who did it she didn't use her teeth but rather sterile medical equipment. I'm not about to condemn anyone on any side of this issue except to say that it is the responsibility of the parents to make informed decisions on what is best for their child.

I can see how some men would need the foreskin in order to get a grip on things.

Others who research circumcision, opt against it. Pesonally, I respect either decision. But, even in sterile conditions, there are risks to the baby. And, of course, painful. Ideally, it should be done in adulthood, when the man can make his own decision.

In our culture, circumcision is bound to religion. Not always the best guide for medical procedures.

You need it to tie rocks to the member. The poster Stretch will attest to that.

Arguments against.

It is interesting that genital mutilation is alive and well. As long as it's boys who are being mutilated, not girls.
