    Female circumsition is out of the question and I think it is barbaric. But male circumsition is not a Jewish or Muslim phenomena alone. I hear the practice is widely used in other Christian religions. In fact the only religion that does not tolerates it is Orthodox Christianity I heard.

    That is certainly true and was duly taken into consideration in a number of the studies.

    Well first off, the council of Europe doesn't make laws. this is just a resolution. It's a recommendation basically.
    I personally agree, I think the whole male circumcision thing is barbaric at best. A savage practice that we can dispense from now, in this day and age.

    I'm not against having men circumcised if they want to when they're past 18 years old and legally adults but not before they can speak and understand what is happening to them.

    The funny thing is israels' reaction the suggestion. I mean talk about overreaction. This law won't affect israel. And I know what you're thinking, it will affect jews in Europe. But jews in europe that are not israelis are not Israels' duty to represent. They have their own representatives.
    And the religious argument doesn't matter here. It doesn't matter if your religion says this is important or not, religion does not play a hand in matters of governance. You obey the laws of the land first and you observe your religious practices in religious locations.
    If you make a religion that demands that you kill someone every solstice, you will go to prison for murder. Now I'm not comparing circumcision with murder, I'm just pointing out that the law of the land is what counts and religious rituals that are against the law are religious rituals that must be abandoned. But this isn't the case yet with circumcision, as I said, this is just a resolution, not a law. The council can't make laws.
    Circumcision is also a health plus though if I'm not mistaken. Nobody remembers being circumcised as a baby so what is the problem?

    Perhaps. But tell me, what medical benefits do circumcision produce that cannot be facilitated through modern medicine?

    What are the benefits of circumcision?

    There is some evidence that circumcision has health benefits, including:


    A decreased risk of urinary tract infections.
    A reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases in men.
    Protection against penile cancer and a reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners.
    Prevention of balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans and foreskin).
    Prevention of phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin) and paraphimosis (the inability to return the foreskin to its original location).
    Circumcision also makes it easier to keep the end of the penis clean.
