Executive Director, Men's Rights, Inc.
Comments:
As a proud Jew and a critic of genital mutilation, I am disheartened
when people condone circumcision in deference to the Jewish
community. A desire to protect millions of Jewish boys from physical
and emotional trauma is as far from ant-Semitism as you can
get....Fact is, even if a Christian fundamentalist were whipping his
or her child with the best of intentions ("The Bible says, 'spare the
rod..."), I would still call it child abuse. I doubt that there is a
parent alive who chooses circumcision with sadistic intention.
Nevertheless, what the child experiences is child abuse, pure and
simple.
