    I would circumcise my child because an invisible entity is commanding me to:-) I believe in God, am muslim and am for circumcision but i cannot give you a scientific rationale behind it. the reality is that it is my religious duty & have no desire to justify myself further to the ones against it as even if i respect their opinions, mine is more important:-) their opinion is as valid as mine as there is nothing clearly established medically to prove us right or wrong. There are today some studies but they seem inconclusive. conclusion: for or against, It brings us all to the point that we have to admit it is a personal decision. i do not impose my views on others and if i have a child, the poor thing will have to follow mum's wishes, right or wrong. As long as there is no danger for the child, i will do what I believe in. I respect their opinions but i am also entitled to mine.
