Infant circumcision is the violent misadventure of prodigal children. It is criminal to perform elective surgery without the consent of the elected. It is macabre to suspend fiduciary duty to our fellow man—to negate extant protections under the law—to satisfy either the mesmerization of one who sacrifices other sentient beings to their God, or in a reductionist mesmerization of prophylactic fear mongering—of battery and irrecoverable theft—where one adds zeros and gets for their answer the number of zeros added (i.e. ‘recite a fear, torture a child’). Truth does not lend itself to reduction.
Cutting a healthy child is always battery. It is a serious confusion of agency. Mesmerization is no defense in the law.
