Rates of Infant Genital Mutilation Fall in US

There is, at last, some good news out of America -- the number of baby boys who are genitally mutilated is falling.  The revolting surgery of infant circumcision is, it seems, finally falling out of fashion.  Thank God!

I have nothing at all against circumcision for those who are adult and religiously inclined;  it shows a true commitment to their beliefs.  But the genital mutilation of baby boys without, of course, their consent should be a serious crime -- no different than scalding a baby or shaking them -- and the perpetrators, parents and doctors, should be sent to prison for long periods. 

It is a relief to see that many new parents agree with this philosophy.
