Not banned but both sides of the issue should be explained to the parents. If not for religious reasons, then do we really need this procedure?

Indubitably, I would consider it child abuse. No reason to push your beliefs on your child in order to have them sexually mutilated

no....if you say yes what are your reasons for pushing your beliefs on others who have an understandable reason for doing it????

I have performed many in my career......yes there are risks, yes the baby is probably in some pain, but no one truly remembers it...they can't and if done safely and correctly it is low risk........and a lot safer than having to do it later in life in an emergency or even semi-emergency situation when the patient needs general anesthesia and will remember the post-op pain and suffereing.........

if you are wanting to end religious beliefs isn't that somewhat of a bias against religions just like many of us complain about religions pushing their religion on us......
