I don’t see circumcision to be immoral or barbaric. If I were to suppose why people might believe it to be barbaric, I’d say because it’s a religious practice. You don’t hear much about piercing infant’s ears from that crowd, then again you might. But I never do. How disgusted could you be about circumcision if you support abortion? Killing the child weeks prior to (or up until) birth is acceptable, but not circumcision?
What do you think? Is circumcision an acceptable practice? I’ve heard it also serves some health purposes. But what if it didn’t and was purely a religious practice, is that a good enough reason?
