What? How is it any of the city’s business what parents decide concerning their own children?
Jewish groups and others are up at arms over an attempt to outlaw male circumcision in San Francisco by putting the issue to a popular vote. Self-described “intactivist” Lloyd Schofield has been collecting signatures for a voter initiative that would criminalize infant circumcision in the Californian city. After two months of collecting names, he claims to be more than half way toward getting the 7,168 signatures he needs by late April to put the matter on the November ballot. Schofield and a growing community of anti-circumcision activists say that infants should not be forced to participate in what is essentially culturally accepted genital mutilation.
Outlaw circumcision… That’s Frisco for ya… I think instead they should outlaw stupidity. The city would be better off by far (and much emptier apparently if the petition signatories are any indication).
