A man in South Dakota is suing the hospital where he was circumcised as a newborn, saying he only recently became aware that he'd undergone the procedure and that it robbed him of his sexual prowess.
28-year-old Dean Cochrun is asking for $1,000 dollars in punitive damages from Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls. He claims an unknown doctor at the hospital, then named the Sioux Valley Hospital, led his mother to believe the procedure was medically necessary.
He argues the circumcision was not necessary, unethical and without medical benefit.

Should he get paid?

    Because people are wising up and realizing it is not just a piece of skin, no matter how it is removed. They are also realizing that it/s just plain weird to mutilate babies' genitals.

    Well there isn't, there wasn't when he was born and I'm sure there isn't one proposed. So I guess you need to go into healthcare legislation. Kids and babies don't make healthcare decisions in any civilized country.

    If a Dr recommended this procedure then the baby must have had a problem that needed correcting, this would not be carried out otherwise.
    One of my son`s needed circumcising when he was nearly 4 due to a very tight skin which kept becoming inflamed, he`s never suffered any ill affects + now has 3 children.
    So what`s the problem with this feller. He`s just looking for money, $1000 is`nt much though !!.

    this is nothing but a frivolous and ludicrous case by a defendant who most likely suffered zero damages do to the choice that was most likely made by his parents. if he had a right to sue anyone it should be them. as far as i am concerned he should get nothing because he is just another sue happy jerk off looking for a easy payday.

    OK, yes, it was done without his consent seeing as he was a newborn at the time,, but it's done and that's that. It would set a bad precedent if he got paid. I think he's just looking for a way to get some money for free.Will he go after his parents next?

    No, it's an opinion. Sometimes circumcision becomes necessary due to injury or infection and that's what happened to my father. Looks like it didn't hurt anything in the long run or you wouldn't be reading this right now.

    Go ask someone to explain to you just what that means. Ignorant indeed!

    A women can still gain a orgasm and enjoy sex after most forms of a female circumcision so going by your logic . I guess people caring about that is ridiculous .

    I do not agree. That is why the girls get the circumcision, that is the whole purpose. No pleasure from sex.
  • Joey D D 2012/07/02 07:57:36

    The reason by circumcision was popularized in America,was so that boys would stop (enjoying) themselves .

    1887: 10% of the U.S. male population circumcised:

    "There can be no doubt of [masturbation's] injurious effect, and of the proneness to practice it on the part of children with defective brains. Circumcision should always be practiced. It may be necessary to make the genitals so sore by blistering fluids that pain results from attempts to rub the parts."
    Angel Money, Treatment of Disease in Children. Philadelphia: P. Blakiston. 1887, p. 421.

    With that removal of the foreskin it is a harder to do , and this is why many males need some for of lubricant when they are are doing it.

    ok. Some use lube, some don't. I can see you are very anti-circumcision. I got your message.
  • Joey D D 2012/07/02 08:07:19
    Joey
    This is the address the point that you made about it being done to female . So they would not enjoy sex as much . I am pointed out where it is documented that it was pushed in America to stop males from having enjoyment .

    I wonder how you would have liked having parts of you removed as a child .

    Jews have been doing it for forever. I am sorry, but I am not on board with you about it being to stop masturbation. With or without foreskin a penis is going to orgasm. I think it was being done more for cleanliness issues. There may have been some that thought it would keep guys hands off it. They were idiots.
