Let me tell you...I have a VERY close friend that I donated my eggs to. I never thought to ask before hand if she was planning on circing. So, when she had two boys and said she was going to have a bris I was upset. She seemed to be reconcidering too. Then, the day the boys got home from the NICU, she took them to her OB (also jewish) and had them circ'd in the doctors office. That made me very angry. She had said she wanted a bris and then turned around and had them chopped at a doctors office. At least he didnt use clamps, bleck. Anyway, I didnt talk to her for almost a month and finally I started talking to her again and told her how upset I was that she would do that. She said she was sorry and that she wouldnt do it again and that she felt bad about hurting her sons. Well, last week I was at her house and she told me the real reason she got it done. She thinks uncirc'd penises are ugly. I told her that most boys in our area are no longer being cut and that she was just conditioned into thinking that uncut penises are ugly. Her response was that she has to change their diapers and she didnt want to look at "that." On top of that, I think one of her twins has a burried penis. I honestly dont know that I can talk to her again. She is pregnant again, this time with her own egg (oops!) and I am pretty sure that if she has a boy she will circ again. She said she wouldnt but I have a feeling that went out the door since it is hers in total this time. I wish we could cut off the foreskin of women who do crap like this.
I think it should be mandatory for the mother to be circ'd before she is allowed to circ a baby. Definitely!
love and peace.
