Circumcision can be a very controversial topic, and emotions tend to run high when discussing whether or not a parent should make this decision for their child.
There seem to be three main camps when it comes to this decision:
1. Those who feel that a circumcised penis is cleaner, healthier and safer.
2. Those who circumcise solely for religious reasons.
3. Those who feel that an intact penis is healthier, safer and/or the decision to have a part of the body altered belongs exclusively to the person whose body it is.
In an effort to aid parents who are trying to decide, the Boys Health Advisory has launched a new website called Circumcision Decision-Maker. I am passing this along for those of you who would like to do further research before deciding.
