Do we violate rights or not?

It is very black and white to me: either we decide it is OK to violate the most basic human rights to genital integrity or it isn’t. If we decide it is OK, then no family should be forbidden to circumcise their child, be it a girl or a boy. If we decide it is not OK, gender cannot be a factor allowing some parents to mutilate their baby’s genitals. It is that simple.
