Anyone who disagrees is evil and doesn't respect a humans right to decide for him/herself.
There's really no discussion here and in a few millennial people will be astounded for the abuse that people put on their children.
If health benefits are really a just reason than you can start removing a LOT more from the human body at birth so don't even go there.

Big sigh over this post.
There was only one person who got what I said.
Which was this - if you are born with parts, you should keep those parts - they are there for a reason.

But...as a parent, you are still making a medical choice for a child that can not give informed consent. Which is a parent's job.

Here it is for all to see:
Does Circumcision remove the most sensative parts of the penis?
The study says:
From the same site and the link was on the same page as the OP's source article.
A recent study by M. Sorrels and colleagues from the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Center and Michigan State University mapped the fine-touch pressure thresholds of the adult male penis in circumcised and uncircumcised men and compared the two populations.
This study suggests that the transitional region from the external to the internal prepuce is the most sensitive region of the uncircumcised penis and more sensitive than the most sensitive region of the circumcised penis. It appears that circumcision ablates the most sensitive parts of the penis.
