Circumcision is a hotly debated and highly personal topic, but no matter what your opinion, the decision as to whether or not to circumcise your son has been up to you. That could change.
Public health officials are considering promoting circumcision for all baby boys born in the United States. The reason? Circumcision has been shown to prevent the spread of H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS.
A formal draft of the proposed recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention won't be out until later this year, but people are already buzzing.
No matter what your view on circumcision, do you think the government should have the authority to mandate whether your son does (or doesn't) get circumcised? Or do you think circumcision is a personal choice that should be left up to parents?
