Circumcision info –
I believe in parents’ rights. Whatever decision you make for your child is the right decision for you at that time. However, I am opposed to circumcision and feel I should state that upfront. I know some people circumcise for religious reasons. I did some research awhile ago that showed that biblical circumcision was very different that what we do today. http://somethingsarehard2say.blogspot.com/2013/07/is-circumcision-christian-thing-to-do.html and http://somethingsarehard2say.blogspot.com/2013_07_01_archive.html. Back in Biblical times, it was literally just cutting the very end of the skin off to mark themselves for God. It was not a full removal of the foreskin.
