Circumcision is an existential question?

Reidar Hjermann, Norway's Children's Ombudsman, has proposed that 16 be set as the age of consent for male circumcision. Some people are not happy.
“The age limit is effectively a ban for those of us who circumcise our children on the eighth day. Circumcision is an existential question, and therefore the Ombudsman’s proposal is dramatic and serious for us,” said Ervin Kohn, leader of the Jewish community in Norway.
