… and now we hear from nocirc in this compelling response to the NEJM paper.   This issue won't die any time soon … another paper on parental education just off the presses too.  This one seems odd to me too.  Parents didn't change their minds about circumcision even after education.  But the education that they received was the AAP's Circumcision Information for Parents. This is anything BUT an even-handed document — so I'm not surprised that parents still chose to circ.  Trouble is .. there really aren't any good even-handed documents out there.  The NOCIRC stuff is a little too far off in left field "children can go into a coma when they are circumcised."  and the AAP stuff (among others) is too pro-circ.
