Most of us have played the state lottery, especially if we live in a lottery state. We all think we have a chance to win.
We also play a lottery of sorts when we circumcise a child. The odds of a child dying from his circumcision injuries are at least 1,750 times greater than winning the lottery.
On the long odds, we bet a dollar. On the short odds, we bet a life.
We celebrate the winner of the state lottery and someone gets paid. We deny the "winner" of the circumcision lottery and an innocent life is lost.
In the state lottery we all think we have a chance of winning otherwise we wouldn't give up our hard earned money. In the circumcision lottery we deny there is a chance of "winning" and risk losing a son.
In loving memory of Christopher Dolezal – 1982 - Des Moines Iowa.
