Yes, but allow a clause for religious beliefs.
If all males were just aborted, it would take this issue off the table and solve many other problems.
Can we stop with the stupid tangents here? What we're talking about is the permanent disfigurement of an infant. Without his knowledge or consent. Even a parent should not have that kind of control over their child. Bodily sovereignty, remember? It's my body, my penis, and I don't want anyone messing with it without my permission. If circumcision is such a good idea, let consenting and informed adults choose to do it to their own bodies. Anything less is child abuse.
Again, the point is this. Do not do it to children. Let consenting adults choose for themselves.

"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)

The Centers for Disease Control Are Preparing to Recommend Mandatory Circumcision for American Boys as an AIDS Prevention Measure.
Patterico explains why this is stupid:
He and other experts acknowledged that although the clinical trials of circumcision in Africa had dramatic results, the effects of circumcision in the United States were likely to be more muted because the disease is less prevalent here, spreads through different routes, and the health systems are so disparate as to be incomparable.
Clinical trials in Kenya, South Africa and Uganda found that heterosexual men who were circumcised were up to 60 percent less likely to become infected with HIV over the course of the trials than those who were not circumcised. There is little to no evidence that circumcision protects men who have sex with men from infection. Another reason circumcision would have less effect in the United States is that some 79 percent of adult American men are already circumcised, public health officials say.”
