There's new evidence out of the U.S. that is prompting doctors in that country to recommend circumcision for newborn boys.
Since 1999 doctors have been pretty neutral on the subject, telling parents the choice was really a personal one.
But new studies have American doctors recommending the procedure to prevent disease. Dr. Douglas Diekema says the evidence suggests cicumcision reduces the chances of aquiring HIV, HPV and other STI's. Diekema admits this is a tough decision for parents to make, knowing their grown-up son may not actually like the choice they made.
