Why is it her body, her choice but not his body, his choice? Added ETA

When it comes to abortions the saying goes "Her body, her choice" but when it comes to circumcision, the saying goes "Chop off the foreskin." Why can't it be "his body, his choice?"

ETA: For those who think it's apples and oranges it is still about ones own body no matter how you put it.

My husband made that choice for our son. As a man he knows more about it than I do.

So that means they don't have basic rights?

Some say his choice., some do it to look like daddy and some do it for religion. Oh and I forgot some are pressured because it needs to look " normal". I say your child your choice.

Circumcision is not a medical prodecure, it's an elective cosmetic surgery.

Not everyone who is pro-choice is pro-circumcision.

So parents should make no medical decisions for their child? We should leave healthcare until their old enough to talk and make their own decisions. Gee, I hope they live that long.
