    I think you have to be a complete prick to get circumcised.
    What happens in General, stays in General.
    You know what they say about assumptions!

    Regarding the parents, it's no skin off their nose.

    After the "last post" thread this morning it seems CUK has lost more than a foreskin.

    In general terms (for a clinically indicated procedure), consent by either parent (or the child if capable - obviously not the case for an infant) is sufficient.

    For infant circumcision that is not clinically indicated, I would be more fussed about whether or not it should be allowed at all, rather than whether it should require one or two parents to consent. I can never quite make my mind up on this one, in terms of the balance of the rights of the child within the context of the ancient rituals of the Jewish community which is obviously a community that has undergone significant persecution historically. Islamic circumcision is more flexible around the age of the boy.

    Maybe the African ritual(ancient and modern) of FGM should be allowed?

    I can think of no worse torture. Shove bamboo shoots up my fingernails, anything but circum... ughh can't even type it.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    If you think so.

    I disagree though, because the impact on the child is significantly greater, so the balance of interest would tip entirely towards the interest of the child and away from any interests of cultural groups. If you disagree, then I guess you could start campaigning for a law change, but you're a sick **** IMHO.
