Sam is circ'd, my DH is Jewish...that isn't the full reason why we did it, my husband isn't religious exactly, if at all but it is a cultural consideration for some. We made an educated decision to do it. For what it's worth, I have seen it done "live" in the hospital setting when I was in nursing school and also several times in homes of relatives/friends for their sons' (Bris) I knew exactly the procedure that was being done. Research, educate yourself and do what feels right to you and your family, I wouldn't be inclined to tell someone what they should do with their child's penis, be it to keep it intact or circ, seems a personal parenting decision to me and this is an argument I tend to avoid because people often get heated about it.
