Judiaism puts health ahead of ritual

Any Jew who sincerely wishes a 'halachic' (orthodox) way out of having to circumcise can easily find several, upon careful reading of the Torah, the Talmud and other governing documents. The most obvious: Judaism always puts health ahead of ritual. This is why it is not obligatory to circumcise a haemophiliac son. You have more religious people on your side than you know. Martin Novoa, San Francisco, California.WDDTY replies: It may interest American families of all religions to know that the American Academy of Pediatrics recently reversed its position on circumcision. After reviewing all the medical literature on the subject, the AAP announced that the potential health benefits from circumcision are not significant medical justification to recommend it as a routine procedure.

For the first time, the AAP also acknowledged that pain relief is essential for neonatal circumcision thus ending the myth that babies getting circumcised feel no pain.
