In the West, only 31 percent of newborn boys were circumcised in hospitals in 2005. That compares with 75 percent in the Midwest, 65 percent in the Northeast, and 56 percent in the South. Factors influencing circumcision rates may include immigration from Latin America and other areas, where circumcision is less common, and insurance coverage

Now I'm from the midwest and I fall into the 75% of midwestern-born Americans who were circumcised. And I'm not Jewish, and nowhere near 75% of Midwesterners are Jewish. It is not predominantly for religious reasons is my point.

I don't know why 75% of midwesterners circumcise their children while half that do in the West, but...is it that big a deal? Do you really have to ban it?
