Children do not assent to most of the things we require of them - true, but most things we do to them are reversible, at least in theory. When they grow up they can change their religion or become atheists, they can choose a completely different path in life than the one their parents carefully and painfully steered them through, they can switch national identity, citizenship - they can do and undo almost anything but regain the foreskin taken away from them without their informed consent. So what if circumcision is an ancient ritual? We have abandoned many ancient rituals and religious laws - e.g., animal sacrifices, stoning of adulterers, capital punishment for blasphemy, Sabbath breaking, etc.
