Interview with Ed Wallerstein, expert on circumcision

(15:01) The legal status of circumcision is many modern states is unclear. In the US, circumcision is not illegal, but some argue that the circumcision of a child violates general laws enacted for the protection of children. Recently (June 2012), a German court issued a ruling that circumcision without medical indication for religious reasons causes irreparable bodily harm, is a felony and goes against the interests of the child to decide later in life on his religious beliefs. This video gives a little background on circumcision by medical historian Ed Wallerstein, author of the 1980 book, "Circumcision, An American Health Fallacy".
