I do not believe in any kind of mutilation, but it is the lesser of the two evils.
The new surgical device/procedure for adults is a welcome step, because now the babies and children do not have to be circumcised and thus avoid trauma, and in many cases death.
Please protect our innocent babies from unwanted procedures and premature infant mortal deaths.
Please save the babies.
Atleast now the adult procedure means that a person has a right to choose, what he wants to do with his body.
