I keep reading articles about it and people's responses to it and one that gets me is the whole 'God made it that way so why change it? That's the way it's supposed to be'
So that got me thinking, there are many things that God makes that we fix...for example cleft palate, or crooked teeth, or babies born with their hearts outside their chests to name a few. So what is difference between that and circumcision? They all have to do with fixing something that God created but what is the big deal that people are making with circumcision all of the sudden? It's a parents choice, the end. If something like this actually passes then what's to stop the government from deciding plenty of things that are none of their business. I feel like people who support this ban are not looking at the bigger picture of things, they are not realizing how this affects the Jewish community and their first amendment right to freedom of religion or regardless of religion our freedom as a Americans to do what we feel and think is right for our family.
And to add another thing...to say that circumcision and female mutilation are the same thing is beyond ridiculous. First of all male circumcision is done by trained professionals and it is rare to have medical complications, but for females the complications are severe and the procedure is frightening. Not to mention that sometimes they even stitch closed the vaginal opening. I'm not saying there are not boys/men out there who had complications or have issues with having had their penis circumcised but it's ignorant to say the two are the same thing.
I just had to air this out because the nonsense I read about this is laughable. In the end, the only argument that is needed is that you do what you want with your child and leave others alone. Live and let live people.

When someone comes here and make a post asking for opinions on the subject, I give them mine, I do not believe it is a necessary procedure and I would not do it to any child of mine. I have a 23 year old son and a husband who is 61 that were never circumcised and have never had any problems. My motto, is if it is not broken do not fix it.

According to the logic of some, I guess GOD gave my child hypospadias. There was no way I was going to leave it that way. He was repaired and circ'd during surgery at 8 mos of age. I think my son will appreciate being able to pee straight. :)
