I was in my kitchen getting my children ready for the school run when my phone pinged. The children in the case were to decide for themselves when they were old enough to do so. I felt stunned. Like the father, my ex-partner is Muslim and wished to have our sons circumcised according to his cultural and religious beliefs. The boys in the High Court case were a similar age to our sons, too — mine are now seven and five. I took the children to school.
Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin from the human penis. After that, a circumcision device may be placed, and then the foreskin is cut off. Topical or locally injected anesthesia is used to reduce pain and physiologic stress. Medically it is a treatment option for problematic cases of phimosis , balanoposthitis that does not resolve with other treatments, and chronic urinary tract infections UTIs. The positions of the world's major medical organizations range from considering elective circumcision of babies and children as having no benefit and significant risks, to the procedure having a modest health benefit that outweighs small risks. An estimated one-third of males worldwide are circumcised. Neonatal circumcision is usually elected by the parents for non-medical reasons, such as religious beliefs or personal preferences, possibly driven by societal norms.
