To circumcise or not to circumcise

If you are expecting and you found out you are having a boy. There are countless decisions to make, but you will inevitably need to decide whether or not he will be circumcised.

Circumcision has dated back to 3000 BC and was originally performed on upper-class males. Over time it became a more common medical procedure. By the 20th century, circumcision has become mainstream in many English-speaking countries.

But the question is why circumcise and what are the benefits? Many blindly choose to get their child circumcised but do they know why? What are the reasons to do this procedure at a young age?

Others believe this is a crewel practice and should be performed with the permission of the child.
