Absent from your report is the reason the mother mentioned in court to change her mind, that is that at this age it has to be done with general anesthesia, which means an extra risk of death.

Apparently many people still think that the retention or unnecessary amputation of normal healthy parts of the bodies of children can be subject to contractual negotiation between former couples.
