Judging from some things I have read on the web, it seems that in some hospitals, they are sneaky about it and don't discuss it. They put a consent form in a stack of papers parents are signing, or they come down and more or less take the infant away to do it, as if it is just a normal part of their day.
I can see why you would be pissed off about that, it's not a good system. Overall I think it should not be done automatically to boys. OTOH, I am uncircumcised and think foreskin has its pros and also downsides, so having one does not mean you attain penis nirvana
