I see the NHS do not really advise it and they ban female circumcision. So that is good but I would like to make it so that male circumcision is banned. How can I make sure this happens?

Chopping your arm off has health benefits; you can't ever break it again.

Religion is virtually untouchable I'm afraid, so as long as it is connected to a religious practice, people will continue to pussy-foot around the subject and claiming it is "insensitive" to criticize a religious practice, no matter what it is.

Absolutely nothing wrong with circumcision at all, it is a perfectly legitimate surgical procedure that can be conducted for a variety of purposes that is not neccessarily exclusive to religion and in fact it is way more hygienic. An uncircumcised penis is pretty nasty imo.

You can't. Female circumcision is completely different and there's no evidence to suggest it has any beneficial effects at all, whereas male circumcision can apparently help to reduce risks for cancer/infections. I do however think that male circumcision shouldn't be performed at birth, the man should come to a mature decision and consider the advantages and disadvantages rather than his family make the decision.

I have already saved some children by convincing people not to get their child circumcised.

So many males encounter problems with their circumcision I speak to people every day who have to live with unnecessary problems

It is a really horrible thing to do to a child

Preventative mastectomies can also help to reduce the risk of cancer, does this mean it is in justifiable to go around cutting breast tissue from people without their permission? :confused:

I think it should be illegal to chop something off you before you have any idea of what you are loosing. If you want to do it when you can make a rationale choice then sure.

So many Jews on thisw board. The issue isn't so much the effects of it because it hasn't been proven to be harmful but rather the ethics of it; Is it right to remove someone's body parts for no urgent medical reason without their consent? If a family asked their doctor to remove their baby's little toe because hey just thought it would look better he doctor would refuse so why is removing the foreskin any different.

I did say it hasn't been proven to be harmful but it does reduce sensation during sex. This is another reason for banning the practice.

I acknowledge the final part of your post, I was just confused as to why the post seems to view it as acceptable to mutilate the body of a male but not that of a female. My post was challenging this, by the way, do you believe mastectomies should be as justifiable, and undertaken as widely, as circumcision because of the supposed 'benefits' of such procedures?

1) I'm not a Jew.
2) I said that the man should decide to have it removed, not his family. Why are you trying to preach to me when I'm agreeing with you?

Talk to your mp and ask them whether they think surgical procedures, not medically required, should be carried out by medically unqualified people on babies, with the parents consent.

If me parents had me circumcised as a child due to their ​religious beliefs, I'd be really pissed off.
