Heal blog: Doctors in the Netherlands want safer circumcision procedures
Members of the Royal Dutch Medical Association (KNMG)  would like to appeal to human rights defenders and politicians in order  to persuade fellow Jewish and Muslim citizens to stop circumcising  boys, or at least make the procedure safer.

‘We want to discourage male  circumcision, because it is an unnecessary procedure with complications,  which violates the integrity of the child.’ Doctors now argue it is also an unsafe and utterly unnecessary  procedure, one of its subsequent downsides being a less satisfying  sexual life. But fighting tradition is a difficult matter, so the  group’s recommendations are unlikely to produce any changes, at least  for the time being.
