Default Re: Divorced couple battles over 12-year-old's circumcision

Its a religious thing dating back hundreds of years and it was wanted for these religious reasons. Everyone is entitled to their own religious beliefs and, as long as no one is harmed and no laws are broken in the course of it, are entitled to carry out religious rituals. It's also linked with benefits regarding the males sexual health.
I don't see the issue in this. If the mother had had any sense she would have accepted the initial decision as no other decision would have been reasonable.
