Circumcision is a medical procedure (albeit a very minor one) therefore will always carry at least a small element of risk that something will go wrong.

As there are only very minor benefits which can also easily be achieved through hygiene, I see no reason for it to be performed and think it is irresponsible and unethical to do something like that to a child.

If parents are that concerned about problems later in life, wait until the child is 18 and can make their own decision on the subject.

Despite having said all that, I don't see circumcision as an important enough issue for it to be made illegal (although that would be fine with me) or for social services to interfere with.
