In brief: Cultural

It has become an unnecessary habit in the U.
S. Based on false long term health issues. Maybe the europeans have caught on.

In brief: Culture/availability

In Britain, the government health care doesn't cover circs, and rates run 10%.
In France, about 30%, in the US it varies from 60-90% depending on ethnic and religious factors. I remember one British Navy officer who had his 3 boys done it the US Naval hospital while he was stationed here for studies.
