    SF May Ban Infant Circumcision | NBC Bay Area

    interesting debate... the baby obviously can't consent to it and its basically mutilating the kid so why should parents be allowed to have it done? if the ceremony was to cut their finger off I don't think it would be allowed...

    It's barbaric ritual.

    And imagine the poor kid, one of his first memories will be that of some stranger cutting off a piece of his manhood followed by his parents serving a catered lunch.

    I'm thinking I need input from one of our Jewish members (pun intended) before I decide.

    Make it easier to kill them but not circumcise them. Only in (liberal) America.

    It not just about being Jewish. Studies have shown that women married to circumcised men have a far less chance of getting cervical cancer. SF is nutz.
