Routine Circumcision – A Needless Harm

A concise paper (9pp) by Leland Wright, a professor based in Luxembourg. She ends with this:

The potential consequences for a child’s later sexual life, the extreme pain of the operation that has to be endured by the newborn, and perhaps most importantly, the inability of an infant to have a choice in the permanent removal of a piece of his natural identity, are all compelling reasons to abandon routine infant circumcision. The arguments in favor of such a radical surgery have fallen short. Let’s better ourselves and our society by removing it from the routine hospital environment, so that each man may fully enjoy the right to his natural body.
