Over just the past week, two reputable medical journals published articles on male circumcision and came to totally different conclusions, leaving parents of newborn boys with a stark realization they are on their own, without a consensus from the medical profession.

Editor’s note: No matter what science says, the owner of the penis should be making the call on whether to cut or not.
Doctor must realize that if he or she is doing a nontherapeutic circumcision on an infant or child, then he or she is actually treating the parent, but performing the cosmetic surgery on the infant. This is unethical and should not be tolerated. Circumcision of girls was already outlawed in 1996 and 1997. Our constitution provides EQUAL protection of the law regardless of age, sex, religion, nationality and so on. Therefore the law applies to boys also, but the law lacks enforcement for boys. What part of that can doctors and parents not understand?
His penis, his body, his choice.
