Here is an article written by a father who saw a circumcision being done for the first time when it happened to his son.

http://www.fathermag.com/health/circ/gmas/

He very compellingly explains his deep regret for making this uninformed decision, and I cried reading it. My husband could not finish reading it, nor could he bare to watch a video of a circumcision being performed on an infant. While he is circumcised, he was completely supportive of leaving our son intact. I don't think any informed man would want this done to their child.


ITA!

I used to argue FOR it....circed my fiirst 2 boys, then I saw it done to a sweet innocent newborn I vowed that day I'd never let any of my babies undergo something so horrific ever again.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Thank you for the thread mama!!

My sons will never be circed! Unless they would like to do it themselves. I really don't see that happening.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

If I have a son, he will be circumsized.

My grandfather had to have it done at 60, and would rather my son never have to go through that. Talk about OUCH. It is a simple preventative procedure.

Ummm...if you're having your son circ'd, he WILL be going through that. Talk about OUCH is right. Only this way it will be done on a bitty, newborn baby without painkillers instead of a grown man who will most likely be put under to have it done. Heartbreaking.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Nice list!
We are planning a homebirth. My reasoning is: Why would I take my newborn into the hospital just to be circumcised? That doesn't make sense. I made DH watch a video of circumcision and he now agreed that if this baby is a boy, we will NOT be circumcising.

My husband wasn't on board until he watched this video. I have no clue what we are having. But this is all it took. And should we have a boy we both agree no way. So I agree watch this video if you feel the same that's your choice.
