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. and  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. (they have a great DVD and it used to be free)
