There has even been a group who have been pushing for the act to stop the circumcision of infants in the United States. There has actually been a ban proposal in San Francisco, California in November 2011 ballot. But it was later bought down by the judge because it was seen as an effort to adjust a medical policy. ‘Surprisingly there is a group called the national organization of restoring men (NORM), which is believed to aid men that have been circumcised, by constructing new foreskin by expanding the skin. In the 19th century, it is believed that circumcision had been sighted as the cure for masturbation, which was believed to have caused mental illness, blindness, and convulsions, expressed by (Collier, 2019)

There can only be two main reasons for the cause of female genital mutilation and they are one, to rule girls sexuality and shield their virginity and the other reason is having the condition for marriage or as a benefactor. There are many risk factors to female genital mutilation, which include hemorrhage, shock, infection, urine retention, severe pain and even death.

Never the less in the new testament, it shows that there is no need to physically circumcised. Acts 15:28-29 says that “For it has seemed good to the holy spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden.
