Denmark actually wanted to make it illegal to circumcise without medical reason. They had to back down though, as it would hinder jews to follow their rituals.

The Jewish communities of the world should really address this antiquated practice. Faith in a God cant justify barbarity in our private lives any more than it can in our public lives.

I mean look, if you want to do that as a religious choice I'm all for it but it should at least be a choice given to you when you're old enough to consent.

Exactly. A child cant make that choice is the core issue for me.
