According to the New York Times yesterday, a group seeking to ban the circumcision of children in San Francisco has succeeded. It will appear on Novembor's ballot. To quote the Times: "If the measure passes, circumcision would be prohibited among males under the age of 18. The practice would become a misdemeanor offense punishable by a fine of up to $1000. or up to one year in jail. There would be no religious exemptions." I believe that parental rights in caring for their children are being compromised. They and with the insight of a physician may suggest having neonatals and adolescents circumcised or not. It is too bad that many believe that circumcision is not considered only uncircumcision. Somehow keeping the foreskin is the only way to go. That belongs to facism not freedom of choice we have in this country.
