    Half of Canadians would consider circumcising their son: study | National Post

    "Mar 03, 2013 · According to the researchers, Canada’s current circumcision rate is 32%. In the U.S., rates are increasing, to 61% of men, they said. Canada’s..."

    Do the Amish practice circumcision? - Answers

    "Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains, are forbidden to circumcise as it violates the body. Mormons, Christian Scientists, and the Amish are also forbidden to circumcise or be circumcised. ..."

    ***
    Perhaps one other uncircumcised group at that time would be rural home births.

    I wonder if this person is Canadian, perhaps even originally from India, given the much lower overall rates of circumcision in Canada. There are quite a few Amish in the area, but they would know/report if someone went missing.

    Isn’t it weird that they can’t estimate height?
