Gee, to think that circumcision lowers the risk of contracting aids by 60%! And lets not even talk about the reduction of subsequent transmission. And, gee, not a religious justification in sight. The Oslo cartoon was disgraceful because it was sheer hyperbole in its presentation of the brutality of circumcision and because it suggested that only religious nuts put their children through the procedure. Thinking about the WHO plan to circumcize up to 20 million adults, for profoundly important reasons, I would suggest that it is much more humane to circumcise infants very early in life!
