You would like me to rationalize it to make you look better. I had my reasons and don't regret them. Does that make me a bad mother? Nope. As far as being strapped down, perhaps they fibbed to me so it wouldn't upset me. Have you ever seen how they do xrays on the lungs on an infant? I find that more upsetting, yet allowed it. It was necessary for them to get the xray. In order to put a heart monitor on my child during delivery, they actually SCREW the monitor to the head. Yet I had to allow it to ensure safety for my son. If I felt that it was more socially acceptable, felt it was cleaner, that there were benefits to my kids having a circumcision, then so be it. I do not need to rationalize it for you really. I do not regret it.
