One problem with this argument is that it depends on the truth of the claim that circumcision does not traumatize and that shechita is the kindest way to kill animals. Even if by today's standard's this were true, what happens if at some future time we prove that circumcision does in fact have some bad effects? And what if at some future time we invent even more gentle and quick ways to kill animals than the traditional method of shechita? I suspect that most traditional Jews, and even not so traditional Jews will ignore the new science and continue to have their sons circumcised and purchase kosher meat. A second problem is that we cannot ignore the fact that religion has a long history of abuse in the name of God. Although I sympathize with those who are weary of political correctness, the truth is that political correctness has its basis in being a response to real human injustices.
