Quoting kthx.:" 98% of circumcisions in the US are performed with no anesthesia. A study conducted at the Institute ... [snip!] ... of memory (Study, Toronto Hospital for Sick Children). I mean.... to me, it's not worth it to put my son through that."
Ugh. BG has bounced me out 4 times while responding to this! Grr.
Anyway, while I'm passionate about some topics and will find and/or copy good info, I dont care enough about this one. Suffice it to say that there is lots of info that disagrees with the info you posted.
There is info disputing the inportance of cortidol measurements. also, there si info about pain in fetuses and abortion.
If we had a son the baby would be circd. my husband is Jewish. i prefer circd penises. If he was strongly opposed I'd be fine skipping the procedure but i wouldnt feel like i was sparing him some awful procedure and depriving him of anything later in life.
