As you said they thoughts on it are so entrenched and DH has as much right over DS as I do so I really don't know what to do!! We have a bit more time to keep 'discussing' it before a decision needs to be made.
Has you DH watched any videos of the procedure? I haven't personally but I know from other threads when there have been disagreements when one partner watched the procedure it was eye opening. There's a thread below this one which has some links I think.
Just out of interest given approx 90% of boys are intact why isn't it up to your DH to convince you it's necessary, not the other way? Sorry maybe it is just thinking out loud.
Sure your kid is also your husbands but when it comes to unnecessarily cutting off a body part If hubby won't listen to your facts then I think you can play the "Doctor doesn't recommend it" or "because I said so" card. It is this (saying NO during a Mexican stand-off even if your hubby will be offended) that is very difficult and requires extra balls.

If you want some straight forward data and information then I strongly recommend posts by JohnC. He is anti-RIC but his posts can provide some really good data from highly credible sources. I'm sure he wouldn't mind if you even PM'd him even.
