    When I started the circumcision rate was somewhere between 85% and 95%.  Nobody knows for sure.  There are no accurate statistics.  But we get the trends and we’re watching trends.  So I’ve been doing this work for 26 years, it was 1979, May of 1979.  So now 20 years later the circumcision rate has, in 1993 the last that we have from the National Center for Health Statistics which was just released was 55% of boys are being circumcised in the United States.  So 30% to 40% drop in the circumcision in just 26 years.  In terms of social movements that’s quite incredible.
