Man who lost penis in circumcision circumcises own son

by Emily Le Coz
Space constraints in the newspaper limited how much I could write about the man whose reconstructed penis allowed him to father a child naturally. [No, artificially.] ...
... even though Mike Moore lost his penis because of a tragic circumcision accident, he decided to circumcise his infant son (who is now 6 months old).

Mike "was nervous about having him circumcised," his wife, Heather said, "but there was no cutting involved – just a little plastic ring that goes around him and then it just falls off."

The procedure went smoothly, and everyone is happy and healthy and in tact. [sic]
Speaking of botched circumcisions, here are the court documents related to a case almost identical to Moore's where a 2-year-old boy lost his penis after a laser-cut circumcision. (Moore was 7 when he lost his.)
