I have been begging the surgeons to please remove my appendix. They want to wait until it becomes “acute.”
I have “chronic appendicitis” meaning it does become infected and swollen off-and-on (Margaret Hullahan in M*A*S*H had it in one show) and usually it settles down again with an antibiotic and fasting. But, it could burst and require emergency surgery.
I live in the jungle. Emergencies are not good. Wouldn’t it be better just to have the thing out?
In regards to the foreskin, God commanded the removal and it doesn’t serve any purpose. Why not remove it when there are benefits?

Do you think the way every single male child is born is a MISTAKE?

I’ve never seen a cute appendix. But then I’m not a doctor.
Is a cute apendix fuzzy? Wait... don’t answer that question.
On the other hand, I hope you get it taken care of before it becomes a problem.
On the only hand I have left... I don’t think the argument is whether it’s a good idea, it’s whether it is the government’s right to make that decision for you. And the way I understand it, the circumcision spoken of in the bible was more of a ceremony. I’m not sure the entire foreskin was removed (any Jewish folk out there care to enlighten?)
What your god says about penile mutilation is between you and him, whether he/she/it/they exist(s) or not.
Keep me, and the others out of it.
