Islamic circumcision seems more ethical to me, because as far as I know, itís not really a tradition to circumcise the child immediately after birth, like it is for westerners. The child could be circumcised at 7, or even at puberty. As long as the child is given some semblance of autonomy in the decision, I donít find it necessarily unethical, even though Iíd argue less emphasis should be placed on the practice, since it originated from Judaism

But I definitely agree that circumcising someone who isnít even old enough to at least verbally consent to it, should be a crime. It almost happened to me when I was born, but the doctor my mom trusted wasnít there
