Unfortunately, mom rules on the L&D floor. Because maternity is obvious and paternity is not guaranteed, they will always defer to the mother. If her mind refuses to be changed through research nothing will change. It's sad but true.

Elissa, fortunately today, paternity can be determined by DNA. The time when a mother could say "it was the milkman" or a "one-night-stand" are gone!

Landsie,

Thank you very much for your post.

I must only stress that the foreskin cares for itself! :smileyhappy:

Yes, in maternity & L/D room all is needed most of the time is the mom's signature.

"When it comes to circumcision in the USA, and living here, one of the things that most angers me (secondary only to the barbarity of the procedure itself) is the fear of its continuity in future generations"

Absolutely!

Of course Christopher, but, DNA results aren't instant and unfortunately a determined mother can have her boy circ'ed before a father can be proven to be. I don't however see as many men willing to push their pov as strongly as mothers that are against it. More often than not it seems the father wanting their son to "look like them" or other such nonsense and the mother is left either fighting or deferring. More are fighting for their sons but not all, and to me that is incredibly sad.

This is what drives me crazy. I know a father who felt this way and his wife said "O.K. you take him in then".
