Neither of our kids are circumcised. Now, most people wouldn't even think that our two year old daughter would be. After all, we are a typical American family. But they might be a little surprised to know that our four year old son isn't either. For my husband and I, the subject of infant circumcision came down to individual rights. We strongly believe that our son has as much right to keep every part of his normal and healthy genitals as does our daughter.
I do not judge parents who chose circumcision for their sons in the past. It's only in the last few years that there has been much accurate information about the foreskin, it's structure and function. I know that parents make the best decisions for their kids based on what they know at the time. I also fervently hope that as more people learn about the foreskin that they will realize that it's a normal body part and will make the decision to let their son keep everything he was born with.
Please take just a moment to sign up for Change.org and show your support for ending routine infant circumcision in US hospitals.
