Nearly 8 years ago, we chose not to circumcise our first-born son. I was a little concerned that we wouldn't be adhering to Biblical law if we didn't do it, so I tracked down Brother Hyde, a former institute instructor. He guided me to Mormon Doctrine, where it explains that the Law of Moses, including circumcision, was fulfilled in Christ, so that concern was eliminated. As a man, Dean was all for leaving things intact. As a hemophiliac, Hunter would have had to receive blood products for the procedure. There were so many reasons not to do it, so we didn't. We've never regretted that decision, and left all three of our sons intact. I am surprised at how commonly it is done. The doctors at the naval hospital where Tristan was born came in my room in the middle of the night wanting to do it, so I told them for the umpteenth time that Tristan might have hemophilia, so "NO THANKS". Yeah, that was how my dad was diagnosed about 70 years ago (he didn't stop bleeding, and they didn't have clotting factor to give bleeders, either, so a bleed would last for days or weeks). Sure enough Tristan does have hemophilia, but that is beside the point. We didn't want to do it anyway, but that was a good excuse to get them off my back.
Today, I feel validated. I haven't done any more research on my own, but from a friend's friend's blog post I learned an awful lot, and am grateful that we left things as they were. Learn more here.
