Podcast of us talking about the Oprah foreskin lotion protest:
Oprah Winfrey made her first apperance in Vancouver Thursday night before a sold-out crowd at Rogers Arena.
BUT Glen Callender, founder of the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project, will be outside with his supporters protesting Oprah's support of SkinMedica.
In Vancouver Oprah endorses SkinMedica and has described the product as her “magic fountain of youth and miracle wrinkle solution.” The makers of SkinMedica have said they use foreskin fibroblast a piece of human skin used as a culture to grow other skin or cells.
Callender says “Imagine how Oprah would respond if a skin cream for men went on the market that was made from parts of the lady genitalia that would be an outrage and rightly so. I would like Oprah to come to her senses and realize that all children have a fundamental human right to keep all their genitalia and to decide for themselves if anything gets cut off,”
Callender expects “a dozen to two dozen people” to attend the protest.
