Anne, I'm surprised at your decision considering you are in Israel, do the majority there not follow the judaic laws? I have a few jewish friends and they had to go through with it or had their sons do it, keeping to the laws passed from Prophet Abraham, the first to be circumcised.

|Just a few notes - penile cancer is not more common in uncircumcised males. Foreskin cancer is then again, taking away the foreskin in advance just because of this extremely rare form of cancer seemed too much for us. By the same token, you can consider taking off women's breasts as prevention of breast cancer. I know this is done in cases where a woman is in high risk of breast cancer, but I don't think that would be a good idea for the general public.|
|Non-circumcision leading to being more prone to HIV? Is this a medically proven fact or is it some kind of justification for uneccessary mutilation.|
