I so often hear the abortion argument that no one has the right to tell a woman what she can do with her body, or reproductive health. If you have the view "my body my choice", do you extend that same respect and right to your sons in regards to reproductive rights?
If its your body, your choice, when it comes to circumcision, shouldn't it be HIS body HIS choice? or does right over reproductive health, and body choice only extend to adults.
Is it "His body His choice" or "My baby, my choice"
Curious to see how moms to view, my body, my choice, view circumcision?

I am 100% pro choice when it comes to a woman's reproductive decisions. I also make ALL MEDICAL/COSMETIC decisions for my children while they are CHILDREN. I am the parent, and I am the one RESPONSIBLE for making BIG decisions for them when they are too small to do so themselves. My son was born with hypospadias, and I decided it was in his best interest to repair it and have him circ'd. So I did. Had he not had hypospadias, I still would have had him circ'd, for family history reasons. My BIL is uncut and has had MANY issues growing up, MANY. Due to knowing what he went through, DH and I felt circumcision was the right decision for OUR SON. I don't care what decision others make for their son, for I only know what is best for MINE. Circ or don't-PERSONAL PARENTING DECISION. :)
