i believe circumcision is medically unnesssary not to mention cruel and barbaric there's no reason to do it and why do that to a young baby who cant make decisions for himself if evolution/God wanted boys to be not have a foreskin he would have made it that way men lose about 50% of the sensation from sex if he is circumsized and often as babies infection is more common. circumcision does more harm then good carries unnecessary risks and is painful babies who are circumsized are twice as likely to develop UTI's and irritation around there penis and contrary to popular belief as long as the boy washes himself down there it does not help with cleanliness it also does not protect againist HIV. This whole thing has become rooted in religion and tradition already is europe and other areas of the world circumcision is not routinely done well why not america? a big reason is because of the whole traditional thing. But i still think that it should not be done. whats you guy's opinion on this?

i do forfeit because of my mistake although i could probably argue the other side but it would mostly come from a religious aspect since i can't see much else pro for it

ellaelmore i think u need to research this more extensively first of all im not coming at this in any religious aspect but as far as it not being harmful would u want your genitals mutilated at birth if u were male and it does take 50% of the sensation from sex for a man because the nerves are hacked off during circumcision so he loses sensitivity how in the world is that not harmful?

You must have the concept of of male circumcision confused with female circumcision, where the latter does not in fact have any health benefits nor any hygienic pros. Male circumcision is perfectly healthy and recommended for new born males, it is also highly stressed that it be performed not long after birth, for the reason that the male in question can not remember the pain later on in their lives. Circumcision in expressed to be a form of purification and a way to maintain a healthy body and soul in all three of the religions. The concept in itself is there for the good of the male in question and his health, and not as a form of religious binding or "foot note." Unless you are a female, Circumcision is neither harmful not cruel, it is simply the matter of whether you want to have that part of your body removed for the good of your health, or not.
