Only by 'few', according to world statistics, and yes, many people on this earth, like me, regard circumstision as a form of child mutilation. and those reasons you mention are not valid at all, they are just arguments, not valid reasons, Medical reasons are only valid in a very few (rare) occasions.

There are no valid medical indications for circumcision in the neonatal period.

As I said John, I don't expect, or want you to agree with me, but I do want you to realize that millions of people on this planet feel that way, not just me.

I dont agree with it either, if I want to be circumsized I should have the option when I can make the decision myself.

Actually the methods for circumcision are such now that neither of my boys even cried when it was done. We didn't do it for religious reasons, we did it because there's valid evidence by respected people that it's positive for long term health and can help men avoid certain complications. I haven't personally seen any information suggesting any negative health effects from the process. You've got to reach pretty far to compare this process with slicing kids heads open with a razor then marching them down the street with open wounds.

I do partially agree that scarification as a cultural practice should be left for those cultures to decide. I've seen programs showing the young men and women of the culture displaying pride in the scarrings. I couldn't pretend to understand their culture well enough to condemn it. The only instances where I see it crossing the line is practices such as female genitalia mutilation which is most often performed for the primary purpose of sadistic control.
