Is Circumcision Mutilation

Prince Charles and before him the sons of George V - Edward VIII (later the duke of Windsor), George VI, Henry, duke of Gloucester; George, duke of Kent; and Prince John, were all circumcised. In fact, circumcision was widely performed on British middle - and upper-class male infants from the 1890s through the 1940s. Things have changed a bit since then: In 2010, activists against infant circumcision began an initiative to ban all non-medically necessary circumcisions of minors calling it mutilation. Why do Jews circumcize their sons?
