    Circing in just unnecessary and cruel. No matter how it is done. And for those who would say their baby was quiet and calm after, I disagree and say they were most likely in shock!

    I know that some boys/men do need to have it done for medical reasons, but why not wait and see. We don't cut anything else off "just in case" so why do it to our little boys pen.ises?? Or worse still, so they look like Daddy. My Mum had ovarian cancer. I'm not going to get my ovaries removed "just in case". And my DH is done but there was no way I was cutting my sons body so he would look like his father. No way I was loosing that argument.

    It's just so sad that this still happens to unsuspecting little baby boys.

    I think it should be required to get educated on it watch a video and see some complications, I think parents go into it not fully educated on risks etc.

    So sad, I would never circ my son. To many risks, not anything to gain.

    Whoever said that infants are undervalued, I agree very much so.

    Omg that lil bubba..!! I never knew of all of these risks and possible death from this procedure.. I was always 100% against it but DH is 100% for it I'm glad I never had to choose as I only ever had girls..
