The idea of circumcision is so taboo and not discussed. Are there other mothers out there? I wish we could start a support group of sorts, or if there is one, if you could refer me to it. Thanks in advance.

Religion (religious circumcision) is not allowed to be discussed here. I'm pretty sure the topic is allowed in the Spirituality forum though. You may want to pm a moderator to be sure.

It's nice to hear your voice on this issue.

Are you familiar with the group Jews Against circumcision?
http://www.jewsagainstcircumcision.org/

Or this:
http://jewishcircumcision.org/

Have you read Questioning Circumcision: A Jewish Perspective by Ronald Goldman?

There is support for you.

You have my support...this subject was the first reason I started questioning the faith I was raised in....If I had been a boy...I shiver just thinking about it.

I've been reading and found this particularily speaking to me:

I was raised Jewish.

It's the #1 reason I left.
