There is a debate being help up again over circumcision. The choice to circumcise or not to circumcise. Those who are against it say it is a form of mutilation on newborn baby boys.
It is usually done with in 24 hours of an infant boy being born. Some nurses who have experienced the procedure have had a hard time with it seeing a helpless infant be in that kind of pain even if it is temporary.
This and and other reasons are causing new possible laws to be thought up to prevent any more circumcisions from happening. It used to be that people thought there were health reasons to circumcise, but that does not seem to be the case after all.
Some parents are not even sure why they have their sons circumcised other than that they’ve always known it to be done – like a cultural thing. Many parents do not have any real reason after that. Seems like we have more to learn about circumcision than we thought.
