I got another comment that I am not going to publish, but you know who you are and in case you're reading.........this is for you....
1. My "friend of a friend" story....was an IMMEDIATE friend...not 6 people removed and there will always be cases where things go wrong in any type of procedure.
2. My "social reasons" not counting....count for ME...remember my husband and I are the ones making the decision.
3. Your Jewish "expert" doesn't make decisions for me either...and the fact that I didn't have it done on day 8 having no "covenantal value"....that's like telling Jesus not to heal on the Sabbath! I never said we had a Bris, but the procedure was important to my husband's family because they are Jewish.
4. Finally, as far as me "taking away his choice".....I have NEVER heard of one single man, in my life, complain that they were circumcised and they wished they weren't.
