You could do a search, there are numerous threads here regarding Circ/no Circ.

Re: circumcision?

I didn't vote b/c I have 1 son who is and 1 son who isn't. When my first DS was born, I didn't know that I had a choice (I know, my own stupidity), when DS #2 was born I knew that I had a choice, did my research and decided against it.

Re: circumcision?

It depends on where you live. In our area it's split about 50/50 - maybe more realistically 60/40 ish - as we have a high population of Hispanics. FWIW, all 3 of my sons have been circ'ed. We looked at all the information for and against and just felt it was right for our family. Do what's best for you. If you have one son circ'ed and would like to not circ any future sons, I think that's absolutely your choice. For me personally, I could go either way, although obviously leaning more toward circ w/ 3 DS's that have been. DH had to be circ'ed as an infant for medical reasons. I also required DH to go in with the boys.

FWIW in Canada and Europe this procedure is NOT routinely performed.

HTH.
