The National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers has posted a very informative video on their website ( I highly recommend watching it if you are wanting more information about circumcision of boys. They state the following on their site:

What you need to know...

  • No national or international medical association recommends routine circumcision.
  • Only the USA circumcises the majority of newborn boys without medical or religious reason.
  • Medicalized circumcision began during the 1800s to prevent masturbation, which was believed to cause disease.
  • Today's parents are learning that the foreskin is a normal, protective, functioning organ.
  • Today's parents realize circumcision harms and has unnecessary risks.
  • Circumcision denies a male's right to genital integrity and choice for his own body.
  • Beautiful VBAC Story
