In today’s day and age, young parents are a lot more open to going against the norm.

According to the New York Times,

The percentage of newborn boys who are circumcised in the United States declined to 58.3 percent in 2010 from 64.5 percent in 1979, according to a new analysis from the National Center for Health Statistics. The report is based on annual surveys of about 450 hospitals nationwide.

One of the more delicate decisions new parents have to make is whether or not to circumcise their child (assuming its a boy). Of course, its better if the couple had talked about it in advance, because the doctor is going to want to do it while you’re still in the hospital (unless you’re Jewish).
