"My opinion? Circumcision is cosmetic surgery with some health benefits as a side effect. I don't even believe in piercing babies' ears, so why would I cut some of my son's penis off in the hopes it will stop him from catching STDs and keep him cleaner? We're not Jewish so there is no religious mandate in our family. If my son decides he wants a circumcision at any point in his life, I will pay for it."
