Something being a major part of culture doesn't mean it should be legally sanctioned. Governments should try to their utmost to let children choose their own culture, and shouldn't have it forced upon them because of "parental rights."Circumcision is a major part of the Jewish culture and forbidding it equals forbidding Jews from raising their children as such. Calling the act barbaric is a bit extreme in my opinion, today you don't see many Jews do the Brith by a Mohel in a party with all of the family dancing around the infant's bleeding penis, it is done in a hospital by doctors.
I wouldn't mind making earrings for babies illegal as well. From what I've heard it's actually more dangerous to pierce an infant's ear than male circumcision is.Why is it ok in a European eyes to make holes in your child's earlobe but not ok to do circumcision in a hospital?
