Should ALL boys be circumcised? Some experts say yes – but are they ignoring worrying risks?

Should all girls have their breasts removed to prevent breast cancer? Should everyone have their tonsils out?

“Male circumcision is one of the simplest operations. Indeed, it’s deemed so simple that in this country you don’t even need a medical qualification to perform it on newborns or children.”

“The case bears disturbing parallels with the death in 2010 from circumcision wounds of 27-day-old Goodluck Caubergs of Chadderton, Oldham. In 2012, the woman who performed the baby’s operation, Grace Adeyele, was convicted of manslaughter and given a 21-month suspended jail term.

That same year, the British Association for Community Child Health reported on injuries caused by unlicensed circumcision practitioners in Bristol. These included a fractured skull caused by a baby falling off a kitchen table.”
