What about Wisdom Teeth extraction? How about braces? Pretty painful and some kids might grow up and prefer their original smile.
How the closest comparison female circumcision. Are you in favor of making that legal?

People choose to have facelifts, it's not done as soon as they exit the wound..For that matter, according to your logic, that'd be fine, unnecessary procedures are cool, right? LOL!!
According to the link you posted, they are choosing to be mutilated. See how silly it is to refer to circumcision as "mutilation?"

If it's "mutilation," why is it referred to as "amputation?"

LOL, you're so stuck on that word. Babies can't choose to be mutilated, what are you talking about?..OK, for the sake of argument lets say it's a completely unneccesary surgical procedure. Does that make it better? NOOOO..

But it's not, in some cases, a completely unnecssary surgical procedure. What do you mean I am stuck on that word? I didn't bring up mutilation; I only responded to it.
You are blowing out of proportion what is a simple surgical procedure. Relax!

Yes, some people are overly-emotional. I say let's be concerned about serious health matters like cancer, heart disease, macular degeneration, MS, muscular dystrophy, etc.

It's an uneccesary procedure that kills one hundred babies a year and deprives them of the choice of having the foreskin they were born with..You're defending nonsense. You've admitted it's uneccessary for healthy kids, you know it can be dangerous, it does lessen sexual sensation. It's nothing but an old religious ritual to supress sexual desire. It needs to stop.
