As a woman, I'm not really qualified to write about this

I'll be upfront about this - I am not qualified to write about circumcision. And it's because I am a woman. But I want to talk about it anyway.

The Center for Disease Control reports that the choice to circumcise boys is on the decline in the U.S. The study doesn't point to an exact reason, but experts hypothesize that ethnic make-up, concern over care after the procedure and a growing movement by groups like Intact America are part of the decline.

That's all great to read, but soon-to-be parents of boys have to go through the very real process of making a very personal decision that will affect their son for his entire life. And, oddly, other people like to give you their opinion on circumcision and want to know what you've decided. Read about why that needs to stop.
