    Well, first of all vaccination is not without danger, in some rare cases it is very dangerous for some babies. Secondly, who's to decide what's good for the baby? There is physical health, but there is also social conditions. He might suffer socially from not being circumcised. To do this at 18 is probably a bigger pain. - "Ok. but these are details." - Yes, but all the legal discussion is about these "legal details". I personally think the act itself is quite barbaric, and I hate to see people drink while the baby is being literally cut. Probably it was healthy thousands of years ago, but today its not necessary. I wanted to show that the legal issue is probably more complex than meets the eye. The fact that it appears now in Germany is not relevant, old geschichte is old geschichte.
