Product Description
"There is hardly a reason to circumcise a little boy for medical reasons because those medical reasons don’t exist," said Dr. Michael Wilks, Head of Ethics at the British Medical Association, who admitted that doctors have circumcised boys for "no good reason."

In the United States, parts of Africa, the Middle East, and in the Muslim world, 13.3 million infant boys and 2 million girls have part or all of their external sex organs cut off for reasons that defy logic and violate basic human rights. Doctors, parents, and politicians have been misled into thinking that circumcision is beneficial, necessary, and harmless.

In Circumcision and human rights, internationally respected experts in the fields of medicine, science, politics, law, ethics, sociology, anthropology, history, and religion present the latest research on this tragedy, as a part of the worldwide campaign to end sexual mutilation. They outline steps for eradicating this abusive practice to enable males and females the dignity of living out their lives with all the body parts with which they were born.

with respect to the authors opinion. I am a doctor and I can say it out loud that circumcision has many benefits. As a Muslim doctor I can state that circumcision for males in islam is mandatory but for females no such order had been given by our prophet mohammed but some arabs even before the emergence of prophet mohammed where doing this procedure for females by removing part of the prepuce NOT the clitoris, so there is a major difference between a habit and a religious order. Even jews do circumcision. Any one want to know benefits of circumcision do some googling.

No religion is compatible with the human rights.
