In brief: Circumcision

Circumcision is the surgical removal of foreskin that covers the glans- tip of the penis.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia. Circumcision is done primarily for religious and cultural reasons. Uncircumcised males can be kept clean with gentle cleaning of the tip of the penis.

In brief: It is unnecessary.

Circumcision is unnecessary if good hygiene is done.
Babies are born complete, finished, and perfectly fine (except for the few unlucky ones with birth defects). Circumcisions are done for religious and cultural reasons, but the procedure does permanently change the genitals, so parents should think about it and talk about it before doing anything to their perfect little newborn boy.
