I am a muslim living in India, and after I learnt about this issue when I was 14 I had been researching about it. The American medical associations are the only one supporting this, and most of the researches that support circumcision were either done or funded by American organizations. Till date no proper reason for removing this healthy part from a minor for non-medical reasons has been given.
It does not prevents UTI, the study that claimed it was flawed.
STD studies are conflicting and many studies say that circumcised men have actually an increased chance of contracting STDs.
So far, only HIV prevention seems to have a connection, but the African RCTs are inconsistent with other researches, had a few major methodological flaws and still, 60% relative risk reduction and 1.3% absolute risk reduction does not sounds much appealing, nor does it compares to a vaccine.
This needs to stop.

They have destroyed all of my life at kindergarten age by Gomco Clamp torture circumcision!

I want there to be life long torture and capital punishment for all the offenders, who ever did this to children worldwide, including both of my parents, who bullied me into it and let it happen and all those doctors and nurses, who participated in this child genital mulitlation rape!

It’s a human rights violation. Boys are entitled to body integrity. It’s done to infants and boys because they can’t say no.

It's not healthier, it's not necessary and it can kill babies. What more do people really need to know?
