To each his own.

What health risks does circumcision of a male bring?

Posted at 1:35pm Dec 14, 2008 EST

There are many, many benefits of circumcision. Are you trying to make it it illegal?

Posted at 1:35pm Dec 14, 2008 EST

Ruthies - the risks are the same as with any surgery. However, the benefits far, FAR outweight the risks.

Though I grew up in a society where circumsision was the norm (this society.....), and all 3 of my brothers were, and my husband.... and pretty much every male in this country up until the last 10 years or so..........
We chose not to circumcise our son. My husband's only concern was that there not be something somewhere by the Catholic church saying that it "should" be done, for some reason. He did lots of research, and was not convinced. We didn't do it. It's really unnecessary.... just a habit, really. Thanks for the link.

I think everyone should just decide this for is an unneccessary operation, yes, but there's aslo no harm in it. it even has some, if small, benefits. I would not have my baby circumcised, but I do not judge people who do...

toe, what exactly is your problem with circumcision?
