To circumcise or not?
I bet many a couple has had the "circumcision" debate but hardly anybody talks about it. This medical student feels very strongly that boys should not be circumcised and she explains why here: Tales from the Emergency Room and Beyond….
She says that less than 20% of boys in Canada are circumcised. According to this website, just over half (55.9%) of boys in the United States were circumcised in 2003 but it varies greatly by region from 31.4% in the West to 77.8% in the Northeast.
As I wrote this, I realized that I am very, very anti-female circumcision and not so anti-male circumcision simply because of my culture. I’m going to have to rethink my values.
