Letter: NHS ethics

Sir: John D Dalton (letter, 25 September) invokes the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to argue that "non-therapeutic circumcision on a normal unconsenting child is unacceptable". What about the UN Declaration of Human Rights, which guarantees freedom of religion? Muslims and Jews all over the world are simply following their respective religions.
