There are many differences between Europe and the USA. Insurance in the USA would not be able to qualify the procedure and cover it for, cosmetic reasons only.
Parents in Europe have the right to decide if their son's will be circumcised. I respect you do not agree with circumcision. Do you feel Europe should ban a religious practice, or a parent's beliefs?View Thread
My boys are happy with their circumcisions and I am not saying it is right for every child. But both views need to be respected. My step son unfortunately isn't happy, but it's not because of hygiene, or looks. He is 15 now and for many years has kept it clean and free from infection. It will be up to him to decide if he wants the circumcision when he is an adult.
Women have been known to refuse men unless they are circumcised. I don't agree with this attitude but young girls are not educated on the difference.
Because we have no conclusion Do you think we should rely on parents to make the proper choices?View Thread
The topic was geared for new parents but if you need more opinions please feel free to post a question on our WebMD male communities.
My boys are 17, 22, and 15. The stepson is the 15 year old. I am only able to express the views of those men who have shared them with me. Many men might feel differently.
I will not divulge the personal reasons that my stepson has for wishing he was circumcised at birth but his main reason is not for looks. My stepson had many infections growing up because it is sometimes difficult for young boys to clean that area properly.
Because parents have the right to feed their children what they think is best, and the choice to vaccinate, don't you feel it is a parent's right to also decide circumcision?View Thread
I just bought my 10 year old grand daughter a digital camera. I bought a Cannon brand which is a good solid digital camera under $100.00 dollars. I have seen them as cheap as $40.00. You might find better deals online. Many stores have extended warranties too. Keep us updated.View Thread
