Whichever side of this you are on. This is wrong.
This sets a precedent that the government can control how you raise your children. Next there will e a law on which foods you an feed your kids. Won't be shocked to hear they ban children in synagogues. Nazis must never have left the offcie
The study in Denmark referred to earlier that found 5-fold lower HPV in circumcised men concluded that “the female partners of circumcised men are less exposed to cervical cancer because these men are less likely to be infected with HPV” .
What are the benefits of circumcision? There is some evidence that circumcision has health benefits, including:
* A decreased risk of urinary tract infections.
* A reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases in men.
* Protection against penile cancer and a reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners.
* Prevention of balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans and foreskin).
* Prevention of phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin) and paraphimosis (the inability to return the foreskin to its original location).
* Circumcision also makes it easier to keep the end of the penis clean.
Note: Some studies show that good hygiene can help prevent certain problems with the penis, including infections and swelling, even if the penis is not circumcised. In addition, using a condom during sex will help prevent STDs and other infections.
About time, why isn´t this barbaric ritual banned all over the world already?
Seems like Germany is the first country to become civilized in this manner. Very good Germany! I Applaud you for this initiative, keep fighting the good fight!

It's not your buisness to decide whether or not you mutilate your child. Especially if your only reasoning for doing so is to appease the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

His disciples said to him, "Is circumcision useful or not?" He said to them, "If it were useful, their father would produce children already circumcised from their mother. Rather, the true circumcision in spirit has become profitable in every respect."
