We didn't talk about it again (I find it easier to be pushy on the Internet than in real life), but I am confident that her DH simply wouldn't hear of not circ'ing - if she even had the nerve to bring it up.
The heartbreaking thing in their case is that they tried for years to get pregnant, including IVF. Ironically, just as she was getting ready to start another round of hormone shots for an IVF procedure, she was pregnant. After waiting SO long and enduring so much to have a child, how could loving parents hand him off for circumcision?
