We start off with the most obvious question; what is circumcision? Well, circumcision is defined as the removal of a simple fold of skin that covers the head of an un-erected penis. Parents who decide to circumcise their new-born boys often do so for religious, social or cultural reasons. Granted that these are tricky issues to sort through. Nonetheless, in a recent survey of more than 1000 parents’ readers, 81% of the respondents said that circumcision would be the right decision for their family.
