Okay not sure if this has been mentioned in this post, but here’s my take on circumcision.
I will not be having any sons of mine getting circumcised at birth. If they want to later when they are adults then that is their call.
I know it is a relatively simply procedure performed in this day and age, however, I am not willing to take a chance on my son being that statistic that had his penis drastically deformed by a botched circumcision, or worse yet developing some type of infection that could possibly kill him.
What people fail to understand is this is still a surgery. You would be performing surgery on an otherwise healthy newborn. Why? Tradition? Sorry not for me. Again, I am not taking any chances with a newborn child’s health. Surgery on a newborn baby, for no other reason than tradition or religion is disgusting to me. There is no call for it, god or whatever made us, made us this way, there is no reason we should be tampering with it, especially when we are at our most vulnerable, that being a newborn baby. Now if for some reason complications should arise later in life, then I might reconsider, but as an infant newborn, no way.
I don’t care if most women think a circumcised penis looks better or not, I’d rather my son’s health not be at risk.
End of rant.
