Circumcision Makes People Money

If foreskin is the most erogenous tissue on a male human, and has such great value to its’ owner, then why is circumcision still being promoted as beneficial?

Circumcision makes doctors and hospitals money.

On average, doctors and hospitals make about $450.00 per circumcision. They then have the opportunity to sell those foreskins (many for cosmetic reasons) to make even more money. There are many companies that have a vested interest in the harvesting of human foreskins.


We manufacture Apligraf for commercial sale, as well as for use in clinical trials, at our Canton, Massachusetts facility. Among the fundamental raw materials needed to manufacture Apligraf are keratinocyte and fibroblast cells. Because these cells are derived from donated infant foreskin, they may contain human-borne pathogens. We perform extensive testing of the cells for pathogens, including the HIV or “AIDS” virus. Our inability to obtain cells of adequate purity, or cells that are pathogen-free, would limit our ability to manufacture sufficient quantities of our products. ”

The male infant foreskin has a lot of value, not only to the owner but to doctors, hospitals and the companies that use them to make a profit. It’s no wonder circumcision is so heavily promoted.
