**Should Catholics circumcise their children?
Since Pope Eugene IV condemned it on religious grounds and since the American Medical Association now defines neonatal circumcision as a “non-therapeutic” surgical procedure, would subjecting our children to circumcision be immoral in light of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 2297, which says that non-therapeutic “amputations, mutilations, and sterilizations performed on innocent persons are against the moral law”?
