Quoting **mummyX2.5**:" <blockquote><b>Quoting loser mom:</b>" Awesome. If you don't want to circumsise ... [snip!] ... their religious, ethical and cultural beliefs. I love that u left out the rest of the quote lol they still dont reccomend it"
okay, here is the ENTIRE paragraph:
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) finds that circumcision
has potential medical benefits and advantages, as well as risks. A recent analysis by the AAP concluded that the medical benefits of circumcision outweigh the risks. We recommend that the decision
to circumcise is one best made by parents in consultation with their pediatrician, taking into account what is in the best interests of the child, including medical, religious, cultural, and ethnic traditions and personal beliefs.
(or your obstetrician if he or she would be performing the circumcision) should discuss the benefits and risks of circumcision with you and the forms of analgesia that are available.
