All the benefits of circumcision should be available to all -
As a nurse in the maternity wing of a large hospital, I have assisted with several hundred circumcisions. I am 100% in favour of routine circumcision. It’s a simple operation lasting only a few minutes and it provides a lifetime of benefits. At the hospital where I practice, about 90 percent of baby boys are circumcised and I strongly encourage any expectant mother to have their son done.
While the baby sometimes cries during the procedure, most calm right down after being released from the Circumstraint (the plastic device used to restrain the baby’s arms and legs during the procedure). Assisting during circumcisions is the favourite part of my job, as I think it’s a moment of magic when a baby boy’s glans is permanently exposed for the first time in his young life. If a mother truly loves her son, she should definitely insist on circumcision.
