Urologists offer pizza with a vasectomy
upi ^ | March. 15, 2012

SANDWHICH, Mass.,-- A Cape Cod, Mass., urologist is offering a free pizza to men who are seeking vasectomies in March, officials said.

The Urology Associates of Cape Cod is running TV commercials offering a free pizza with a vasectomy, the Cape Cod (Mass.) Times reported Thursday.

March Madness is also tied into the deal as a way of enticing men to undergo the procedure, which requires men to sit on the couch and rest for a few days.

The ads feature an attractive woman playing with a basketball and a voice over that asks: "Hey guys! Want to watch the college basketball tournament guilt-free?"

Then, the free pizza with a vasectomy offer is presented. "You know you've been thinking about a vasectomy, anyway. Now's the time to get it done," the voice over says.

Urology Associates of Cape Cod administrator Evan Cohen said March is the busiest time of year for vasectomies for his practice, with perhaps 45 to 60 being performed.

He said he hopes the pizza promotion -- a free one-topping pizza from Surf's Up Pizza and Seafood in Sandwich -- drums up some extra business.

"It does actually come with one topping. Maybe you can put some meatballs on it," joked Cohen.

When I was in the military a friend got this done. Major infection causing things to swell to the size of a softball.

Apparently it was quite painful.

Why would anyone want their pizza to have a vasectomy? Is that even possible?

It’s funny too, because Cape Cod is known for being a “gay” hangout. Provincetown is well known as a “gay” tourist destination. By the nature of their activity, a “gay” man would have no need of a vasectomy.

I had mine done in December of 1991. I ws told to stay in bed for 4 days and use an ice bag often. I followed the instructions and had no problem.

I know a fellow who left the doctors office and started a round of golf. About the fifth hole he had to be helped off the course and got himself admitted for a two-day stay in the hospital.

It’s minor surgery if you follow the instructions. If you decide you know better than someone who actually graduated from medical school, bad things can happen. Since it was my genitals we were discussing, I decided to pay attention.

When I was in the Army Medical Corps, a friend--and orthopedist--was sent by the Army to a neighboring facility to learn how to do vasectomies.

He came back laughing--said he'd had a ball--made lots of puns on that word: "You have to be on the ball." “You tell him to stand on the balls of his feet.” “You hold the ball like this.” That sort of thing.

Several months later, I found myself at the same facility having lunch. The rather humorless urologist sitting next to me happened to be the one who had taught the orthopedist.

When I discovered this, I recalled the jokes he had made--all the puns on the word ball--many of which I couldn't remember. I couldn't help laughing uproariously.

Then I noticed that the urologist wasn't laughing.

So to change the subject I said: "What did you say your name was?"

He replied coldly: "Dr. Ball."

Later I made the mistake of telling the orthopedist about this.

He wasn't amused either.

Speaking of inducements for business, some men (also doctors) who returned from military service in Asia, spoke of getting a...well...in Army slang...when they went to get a haircut they also got...well...fellatio. There was some alliterative phrase for it. When I protested that the haircut could come out...uh...quite askew considering the reactions to the bonus...uh... (This is kinda hard...uh...to explain...here.) They informed me, to some relief, that the two features were offered sequentially not simultaneous.

A vasectomy isn’t medical care.

It’s mutilation.

Remember “first do no harm?”

There’s a reason why that oath is now optional.

The rubicon has been already crossed, when in a “health care facility,” patients are being killed (abortion), mutilated (vasectomy, tubal ligation), and poisoned (the pill, botox) on a regular basis.

There is no logical end this.

1. Gen. 38:9–10, Deut. 23:1
Also from NT:
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Philippians 3:2 ESV

Look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh.

2. http://www.catholic.com/tracts/contraception-and-sterilization
Lists what many early Christians said of the practice.

3. Also check the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Since you may be a sola scriptura believer then you can refer to 1.

You obviously are bothered by this and I wonder why. Why should you be concerned about a person's not wishing to have children--or more children--and closing off that possibility by this medical (and it is a medical procedure no matter how much that bothers you) procedure?

I never, ever wanted children and before I got married I had a vasectomy in 1971. Never regretted it either.

So, relax and let people make their own personal decisions rather than railing that doing so is an "abomination against God." My goodness.

Sorry, none of the verses you mentioned refer to vasectomies. Let me illustrate.

Gen 38:9-10 is talking about Onan refusing to fulfill his brotherly duty. That was the wickedness, not spilling seed. Do a word study on the idea of spilling seed and you will find that it is not a sin whether intentional or not. Not in the Old Testament, not in the New. Onan did not wish to bear his brother a child (selfishness) nor did he want to be referred to as the line of the unsandaled (pride). His wickedness was his selfishness and pride, not spilling seed.

Deut 23:1 states that those that have lost testes are prohibited from fellowship. Nothing about vasectomies. Elsewhere, there are restrictions for priests that are disabled. They were prevented from entering God’s presence. However, Jesus reinstates these into fellowship with the following:

Matt 19:12
For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have made themselves eunuchs because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

No longer are the disabled or physically altered prevented from fellowship through Christ Jesus. No longer are illigitimate children prevented from the assembly (Deut 23:2).

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 is speaking about a christian having sexual relations with a prostitute. Nothing about ejaculations nor vasectomies.

Philippians 3:2 is speaking about physical circumcision specifically and reliance on adherence to the law in general, for salvation, not vasectomies.

If the early Christians or the Pope believe things that are contrary to what Scripture teaches, they are wrong and God’s Word is correct. Satan misused God’s Word and has been doing so quite effectively for millenia. Christ even rebuked Peter because what he said was contrary to not only God’s Word, but God’s will. What man says, or angels or demons say, is secondary to what Scripture says: Gal 1:8.

Finally, Deut 4:2 “Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you.”

The Pharisees fell into the trap of adding to God’s Word - and killed Christ to protect their beliefs. Many throughout church history have followed this path of adding to God’s Word and killing to protect that belief. Including the catholic church. And the protestant church.

Scripture verse that mandates Scripture references, please?

Deut 4:2 “Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you.”

Gal 1:8 "But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!"

Scripture forbids adding to or subtracting from what God states. Scripture also says that what differs from scripture is condemnable. Your claim of God abhoring the practice must therefore be in scripture if you are not adding to what He commands. I'm asking you to provide that reference so that I may learn more of God's ways. If, however, it is not contained in scripture then someone has added to what He commanded and is therefore in violation of God's commands.

Regardless, do you think God favors mutilation?

Jesus spoke this in Mat 19:12 "For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have made themselves eunuchs because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

Finally, I think God looks on the heart, but man, as usual, looks on the outward appearance (1 Sam 16:7).

Scripture is in line with Natural Law. Self-mutilation is against natural law, especially if it is to engage in sexual gratification without the consequence of pregnancy.

Your analysis of Genesis is a little flawed. This is one of the critical verses Catholics rely on to show that God does not want contraception. Why was Onan killed for his “selfishness” by God? God already proscribed a punishment for failing to want to give your brother an hei,r if he has died - public humiliation (Deut. 25:7–10). Why would God impose the particularly harsh punishment of death for Onan for this crime? The answer is simple - Onan did more than refuse an heir to his brother - he used his wife sexually outside of natural law. He “pulled out”.

1 Corinthians 6:19-2 definitely applies. Your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit and it shouldn’t be mutilated or used immorally.

Perhaps some of the other verses are red herrings, as it relates to this topic.

Also, there are numerous mentions of sorcerers not inheriting the Kingdom of God. What do you think a sorcerer is? My understanding is that a sorcerer was commonly considered one who provided abortions and contraception.

Deut 4:2 “Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you.”

Well the New Testament right through to the book of Acts is a demonstration of God giving commands. One of the commands He gave was in Matthew 16:18-20. Herein the papacy of the Church was founded - His hierarchy was established. The Gates of Hell shall not prevail against His Church.

God bless.

I understand the story of Onan is foundational for Catholic doctrine. I understand Jesus speaking to Peter is also foundational for Catholic doctrine.

However, an in-depth study on the words and phrases used in both instances will flush out the truth of the matter. As is the case for all doctrine - whether or not it is consistant with Scripture.

In Onan’s case, punishment for spilling seed is not consistent with God’s commands elsewhere in the Levitical law dealing with such matters (to wash himself and be unclean till evening). Therefore, Onan’s instant death was for some other infraction. Pride contained in his heart for not wanting to be called unsandaled was the smoking gun.

Onan died because of his pride. The same pride that caused Satan to be cast out of heaven. The same pride that caused Herod to fall down dead for not acknowledging God. Instant punishment from God. Consistent with what God has stated regarding pride throughout scripture (He hates pride).

Jesus spoke regarding eunuchs in Matt 19:12: “For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have made themselves eunuchs because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

Therefore, regardless of Natural Law, vasectomies are not counter to what Scripture teaches.

As for sorcery, scriptural context demonstrates it is the association with death, demon worship and the dark magic arts that is forbidden. God forbade them from cutting themselves for the dead. Nothing about preventing pregnancies.

Deut 4:2 “Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you.”

This refers to the Ten Commandments, or the Pentateuch, at most. Regardless, where does this say that we can ONLY justify our beliefs through Scripture references?

Gal 1:8 "But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!"

Citing this verse is a more than a tad ironic, since it's talking about preaching the Gospel, not Written Tradition. Sacred Oral Tradition! E-gad! Again, regardless, where does this passage say that we can only justify our beliefs through Scripture references?

The fact is that sola-scripture-reference is a Protestant tradition, begun by Luther. It's also un-biblical, since we are commanded in Scripture to hold fast to the traditions passed down to us by the Apostles, whether by word of mouth or by letter. "So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter." 2 Thes 2:15

Jesus spoke this in Mat 19:12 "For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have made themselves eunuchs because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”

I'm glad that you accept the validity of celibacy "for the kingdom of heaven." Most Protestants don't.

Finally, I think God looks on the heart, but man, as usual, looks on the outward appearance (1 Sam 16:7).

Meaning... what?

I find this paragraph problematic. Can you expand on it as I fail to see how coitus interuptus falls under merely being unclean? Can you provide scripture (or non-scripture) references that this is so?

Post 49 did a great job of addressing Matt19:12, so I will expand no further on that.
