Circumcision may result in a lower incidence of sexually transmitted diseases and may reduce HIV transmission.

Circumcision may result in a decreased incidence of urinary tract infections.

I can't imagine there is a "con" to Circumcision.

I agree... I can't imagine anyone NOT circumcising their son.

Absolutely, Lisalee. Sadly, I had to be circumcised as an adult - and the best I can say about that is I know both sides of the coin. It's as different as 'chalk from cheese', from black and white TV to colour, Stroke the back of your hand, then the palm. Feel the difference? That's a circumcised penis compared with a natural one. A circumcised penis is a crippled penis. Christopher

But we have a debate section for debate. The support section is for those who choose to circumcise their boys. It's not intended as a forum to discuss pros and cons. You can cut and paste your comments to the Debate forum, and I will do the same if you will join me. iVillage's 'Circumcision' folder is unique. It allows us to post under the general heading of 'Circumcision' without havng to go to our browser and click on a saved 'favourite' or 'bookmark'. Christopher
