You have got to be kidding.
But no, apparently the CDC is preparing a proposal that would make it mandatory for all boys born in the US.
Frankly, I am so stunned I can’t find words for all that is wrong with this idea.
Okay, the NY Times article that apparently started the fuss doesn’t go quite as far as mandatory – but does use words like ‘intervention’ and ‘promoting routine circumcision.’
This is a case in which benefits need not only outweigh the risks, there had better be a clearly demonstrable reason.
This is just so wrong…
