    There is one thing that bothers me - the statement that all circ is cosmetic unless medically required or for religious reasons. Some people do it for subsequent bubs if an older one had a bad reaction to general anaesthetic when they medically did require one as an older child. I know that you cant say one size fits all and that because it happened for one child it will happen for another, I am just saying that it is terrible say these people are irresponsible parents if they decide for them the risks of circ when a bub are more acceptable than those they encoutered when it was medically neccessary at an older age.

    From a purely selfish point of view, I much prefer a 'cut' organ to a non-cut one!
    However, there is NO excuse for ******** a perfectly healthy baby, not even religion is an excuse as far as I'm concerned. Even if it were risk-free I'd consider it wrong to inflict that on a little human who has no say in the matter.

    Hi
    There.
    Yes ,I do agree it is so scary ! And even it is very hard to do circ to your baby under medical required but in this case I think your Doctor can explain more if any risk involved.

    Speaking as a man - the foreskin plays a really important role during sex, & I'm very glad that my parents chose not to have me circumcised.

    I don't see that there's any difference in morality between male and female circumcision; both are genital m*********, both are performed for superstitious reasons, and both leave the victim less able to enjoy sex in adult life.

    I have also heard from previous partners that is plays a huge role.

    I have to agree on the latter point.

    I will never get my baby cir. My fiance is not cir and it makes making love so much easier for the both of us and an uncir pen.ise is more sensitive them a cir 1. Its just not right. If you are born with it, its ment to be there.

    Also, it's not like you're depriving your boy of anything by letting him decide for himself whether to be circumcised. If I wanted to as an adult, I could get myself circumcised ... and probably with anaesthetic too, which would be nice (I'm a wuss when it comes to pain).

    Whereas, if I'd been m******** by my parents, I'd have a much harder time undoing it if I chose differently as an adult.

    Tragic. And sadder still that people continue to demand this procedure unnecessarily.
