There's a possibility that the world's medical institutions will give it short thrift - deservedly. But in any event, be sure of this...
The UK, European countries and most of the world's industrialised nations will NOT be springing into urgent action advocating male circumcision. As expected, the USA has shot itself in the foot. It will stumble in virtual pain once again, attempting to promote yet another 'cure' looking for a disease.
America's persistent insularity and belief in its own 'rightness' is both astounding and saddening. I hope its enlightened parents who have left their boys intact will ignore this foolish and - not to put too fine a point on it - stupid declaration.
