Thank you, Dr. Nancy Irwin, for representing our good cause on The Doctors Show! With very little advance notice, Dr. Irwin showed up to speak up on this controversial topics.

Here’s another point: DNA evidence later finds someone innocent who was therefore castrated by mistake. Sorry, we can’t replace what was removed.
