    Is this shit never going to end!!?? Now the state of MA is being encouraged to ban circumcisions altogether. I'm listening to this nit-wit woman who is pushing this thing and I can't believe what I'm hearing. She insists parents (Jewish or otherwise) have no right to make this decision on behalf of their infant children and that it should be left up to the child at some later point in life to decide for themselves whether to be circumcised. All children should be left with all their body parts intact. She feels any religious reasons for circumcision should be overridden and that any sound medical reasons are arguable.

    So you're throwing a hissyfit because they won't let you mutilate your child's genitals?

    Let me guess, this idiot is also pro choice? Let's let a woman choose to abort or not, but let's not let a parent choose what is best for their infant.

    The antis strike out again to limit parents freedom to choose what they believe in in the best interest of their children.

    Barbaric religious customs.

    Lets just sacrifice some baby sheep instead?

    Rod says, if you want to keep a cheesey bacteria gathering flap of skin on your child go for it. You have no right to prevent another parent from having their child circumcised. Religion out the window on this issue but feel free to beat your drum anyhow.

    So you agree that the government should not be involved in a woman's right to choose?

    I don't believe there should be a LAW one way or another on abortion. No. But, I don't want MY tax dollars to go towards paying for someone to have an abortion either.

    Do you want your tax dollars going towards paying for someone's circumcision? (i.e, should Medicaid cover infant circs?)

    Circumcision should not be covered by insurance either since it is an elective procedure.
    I do not want my rates to be higher because of circumcisions.
