Democrat Presidential candidate Yang makes anti-circumcision part of his platform

Well this is certainly a topic that no other presidential hopeful seems to be talking about. Entrepreneur Andrew Yang, who is running to be the Democratic nominee for President, has adopted an anti-circumcision stance as part of his platform.

When asked about his opinion on the practice, Yang responded that he has a negative view of infant circumcision.

Yang also addressed it in an interview with The Daily Beast.

“From what I’ve seen, the evidence on it being a positive health choice for the infant is quite shaky,” said Yang, who did not address whether he’s circumcised himself.

If elected, Yang said he wants to “inform parents that it is entirely up to them whether their infant gets circumcised, and that there are costs and benefits either way.”

“The more choice we give parents, and the more we diminish the possible preconceptions or misinformation various parents are receiving, then the better off we’ll be as a society,” Yang said.
