GUEST,Musket evolving slowly BS: Child mutilation and religion (38) RE: BS: Child mutilation and religion 17 Oct 13


I'll argue the toss with him any day Bridge.

Male circumcism isn't something I have had. I hear that it makes you more insensate but I don't actually know.   Rabbis are allowed to circumcise male babies using a non invasive babell or equivalent.

The Health Act 2006 clarifies that doctors can only carry out invasive procedures if they are deemed to be curative, palliative or preventative. However, circumcism has a get out clause for religious reasons. If an adult wants this for self esteem or other physiological reasons, then it would pass the test for consent in the same way as certain cosmetic surgery.

I have issues with circumcision of children with no underlying medically reason. That said, I have registered and inspected such services in a previous regulatory role. An example of professional obligation overtaking personal concern.
