The Custom of Circumcision Decline in the US

asons for the decline of Circumcision in the US. In these countries circumcision is unheard of.

Changing attitude of the people towards their bodies is also one of the reasons for the decline. Many fathers do not want their son to go through the same pain they went through.

The rates of drug-free labor and breast-feeding all rose during the 1980s, while the initial declines in male circumcision rates began during the 1980s as well, said Katharine Barrett, an anthropology lecturer at Stanford University. It may have been part and parcel of the wider effort to reclaim bodies adult female and infant male from unnecessary and potentially harmful medical interventions.

There are many who still wholeheartedly go with the tradition and want to still continue it. We were all circumcised when I was born, said R. Louis Schultz, a 79-year-old New Yorker and author of Out in the Open: The Complete Male Pelvis. People thought it could ward off masturbation or disease, and those funny attitudes have really changed. Now people are saying, Why do it? Many parents fear their boys would feel awkward in the locker room if they were not circumcised.

Many doctors still recommend circumcision because of some evidence that it reduces the risk of penile cancer, urinary tract infections, HIV and perhaps other sexual transmitted diseases. Many major insurance companies still cover it, and many hospitals offer it free for newborns.But circumcision opponents say the medical benefits are dubious. Penile cancer, for example, is extremely rare. Since 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics has not endorsed routine circumcision.

Heterosexual men in Africa who were circumcised had HIV infection rates up to 60 percent lower than uncircumcised men. Because of those studies, the American Academy of Pediatrics is taking another look at its policy.
