The CDC seems to be trying to tell men what they should do with their bodies. Some parents don’t want to have their child circumcised as a baby. There are no laws that say parents have to do this to their child, but the CDC feels like stepping in to change the minds of those who haven’t had the procedure. There are some risks associated with those who aren’t circumcised.
These are the reasons why the CDC wants to make sure men and teenagers understand their options as they are recommending circumcision. Those who haven’t been circumcised stand a greater risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease or HIV. While there could be some risks involved, it should be up to the man to decide whether he wants to go under the knife to have something changed about his appearance. That is what Tom Rothman would like to see in the future. It’s not a country where a certain look is mandated by the law.
