In brief: Personal decision

This procedure, with religious underpinnings and some health advantages, is a personal decision usually of the parents.
There is no reason to legally interfere in this personal decision, and it is an obvious personal choice.

In brief: Why Shouldn't it Be?

Analysis of all research studies regarding circumcision, conclude that there is a positive health benefit to performing the surgery.
This does not consider the religous aspects. Given the health benefits, why should there be any question regarding legality.
