Circumcision reduces the likelihood of getting many serious illnesses for both men and their sex partners. It is scientifically proven that it does not reduce sexual function or pleasure.

Circumcision has many fewer surgical complications when performed on babies rather than grown men.

Banning it for those under 18 would undercut (pardon pun) many of its benefits.
