It is ridiculous to call circumcision a “snip”. It is a rip (the foreskin must be torn loose from the glans as they are fused together at birth), a crush (the foreskin must be crushed to close the many blood vessels and keep the baby from bleeding to death), and a cut that removes almost half the skin from the baby’s penis. Doctor’s really don’t want to tell you this.
