it is 2012 in deed but for people like you to try to pursue a change in ways people have been deciding their infant sons for soo many years is none of your choice at all... in my opinion why should you even care? you have the choice for your "own" son not others, i also feel that it's going to cause alot of problems if this measure ever truly goes through, i think for insurance companies to not pay for it is good enough but paying out of your pocket to have it done by a liscensed pediatrician should pose no problems... my son had the procedure done and in fact he did well he was givin a numbing injection and he did not cry or even move i truly feel he didn't even know what was going on! there was no blood no bandages no crying whenI changed a diaper nothing...but i must say people who want it done for their sons should have the options just like we have the option to pierce our newborn's daughters ears! if the procedure gets banned you will find people doing it illegally or out of the country or even in other states... i laughed at your post honestly and i feel an uncircumcised penis is just gross even though i know the scientific facts but truth be told i will never be near one nore have i ever slept with one i feel the procedure looks natural on the human body! I'm proud my son "looks" like his father! im pregnant and glad to find out im having another daughter her ear's will be pierced... and if i ever have another son he WILL be circumcised : )

ummm, didn't you get it? The harm of circumcision is so obvious, how can you defend it? You are blinded by your culture, open your eyes, the truth is right in front of you!

Anonymous~ So those who fought for women rights, ending female circumcision, slavery ECT shouldn't have? This "movement" is getting somewhere, and RIC will one day be banned as well. We care because boys, who will be Men, are being mutilated... Without their consent. We fight because everyone should have the right to a whole body. I assume you were born before 1997? I guess its a good thing your parents had respect to not make this personal choice for your body. Too bad you seem to lack the same respect for your childrens bodies. Also, just because it is done by a licensed physician, doesn't make it any better. There is still risk. And for you to choose something for your son because YOU think the natural state of his penis looks gross... Well that's just sick.. Your son, not you, has to live with whatever complications that come from your decision for his body. The internet will be available to him when he gets older.. Chances are, he will learn the truth. Maybe he will forgive you.. Maybe not.

I do not thing that routine circumcision will ever be illegal, because the fraction of the USA that is either Jewish or Moslem is too large. But I am confident that RIC will be seen as a cruel and sexually uncool parenting choice that can result in unhappy marriages and sexually damaged adult males.

Circumcision removes the most sensitive parts of the male genitalia. hence intact men have more sensitivity. They lubricate better, in a way that women value. Foreplay and masturbation are a lot easier. The loose penis skin makes vaginal intercourse more comfortable for women. Intact men find vaginal more thrilling and hence are less interested in exploring anal and oral.

Circumcision has subtly damaged American sexuality, to an extent that varies considerably across individuals and couples. This alone is a nontrivial human rights issue.

A man has a fundamental right to decide for himself how his adult penis should look and function. When parents have an infant son circumcised, they deprive him of that right.

circumcision should be illegal because its HIS BODY HIS CHOICE! the foreskin is supposed to be there, and even though a good percentage of thr us is jewish or muslim more of them are choosing not to get their son circumcised everyday because they think its wrong.oh yeah and if you think its disgusting take it up with DNA and GOD. the foreskin is kind of like your eyelids they keep the eyes from drying out. and if you think that just because you want him to look like you then your disgusting. how would you feel if your son died because the doctor cut his artery and he bled to death. oh yeah if you dont know already circumcision is not even 5% effective in stopping STDs including aids/hiv. also a reason why its so popular in the usa is because back in the 1800s doctors and priests would circumcise a boy because they found out he was masturbating, it was never for medical reasons. it should just be illegal because for one femal circumcision is two if there are truly equal rights then male circumcision should be illegal also.

And the idea that masturbation causes insanity stems from a doctors observation that 'lunatic asylum' inmates masturbated a lot. Therefore masturbation caused insanity, But he got the cause and effect the wrong way round. The inmates masturbated because they weren't given anything to do, so they were bored out of their minds.

Nobody believes that now, but old habits, especially ones that make money, die out slowly. There is much prudery even today, so we'll damage his penis to keep him on the straight and narrow path. But it doesn't, but then it's too late for the boy, and when he grows up he forgets and assumes that damaged is normal, and so the evil continues.
