|While I do suppport choice in the matter of vaccinations I see no middle ground or allowable choice(by parents) when it comes to genital cutting. It is not their place to alter a child's genitals in any way...even in cases where the sex is unknown. The matter should be left to the owner.|

|I just gave a friend a gift subscription to Mothering. Her pregnancy was a bit of a shock and she's very confused on multiple issues - one of them being circ. I'm sending her good info - but I really hoped this magazine would have something backing up what i've been saying to her before she's due.|
