Re: Dads rights: naming, circing, etc?

Can mom just have baby circ'd in the hospital, I am assuming yes. Can dad take baby while on weekend visitation to be circ'd - legally? Hmm?
I would think that he could legally have it done if he wanted because Dad could legally sign the consent just as easily as Mom. My children have had things done that needed consent (hernia surgery and such). Only one parent needed to sign and it didn't matter which one. I'm almost positive my husband has signed at least one or more circ consents since we don't do them in the hospital.
