Argument: Circumcision is sometimes a necessary emergency procedure

Issue Report: Infant male circumcision


Dr David Hawker. “The Benefits of Male Circumcision”. March 2004 – “When does circumcision become necessary? There are a few situations where it is clearcut. If there is only a small opening in the foreskin so that passing urine is difficult, or when the foreskin is painful to pull back during an erection or won’t return forward again. The latter is an emergency situation needing urgent surgery to avoid really serious consequences.”
