    • "It might place the patient in a state of mutilation"

      Eine Studie aus Saudi-Arabien:

      It [circumcision] might place the patient in a state of mutilation, with low self-esteem.
      Ja, das hört man öfters.... aber wenn's weiter nichts ist!

      Denn ansonsten ist Genitalverstümmelung von Jungen natürlich ganz toll...

      Circumcision is by far the most common procedure done in hospitals of Muslim countries. Many research data have proven its benefits in protecting against numerous sexually transmitted diseases, urinary tract infections, and penile cancer in the patients and cervical cancer in partners. The procedure is quite safe, with a low overall complication rate.
      Indeed, as the history of female circumcision suggests, if male circumcision were confined to developing nations, it would by now have emerged as an international cause celebre, stirring passionate opposition from feminists, physicians, politicians, and the global human rights community.
      If routine medical circumcision didn't exist today, no one would dare to invent it.
