SanFran to ban circumcision?

"If it passes, those caught cutting foreskins would face a fine of $1,000 and a year in prison. Only people over the age of 18 would be allowed to have their foreskins removed."

I compared it

to my tonsillectomy, which I consider to be an unnecessary surgery, but was inflicted on me as a kid because it was trendy at the time. Am I angry about it? Yes, a little. Would I support a bill banning all tonsillectomies in people under eighteen? Absolutely not!

I don't know

I've never personally met a man who's complained about his circumcision, and I know a couple of men who decided to get circumcised as adults, and were nothing but delighted with the results. I can understand a law forbidding circumcision from being a standard procedure at hospitals, so the parents would have to make that decision, but I think parents ought to be able to have that option.

Now, I don't own that equipment myself, so maybe my opinion doesn't rate. I'd be happy to hear from the males out there...

Parents should not have the option - no way!

'Parents should have the option' - what planet are you on??? I thought this site was about all things libertarian. What happened to the individual's right to self-determination. Try your argument on yourself and see how it works for you!

It's considered

a medical procedure. Are you saying the government has the right to deny a child a medical procedure? Or, conversely, force one, which tends to be the result of the federally mandated vaccination list?

What about the right to follow ones' religion? Are you saying Jews should be forced to leave their boys uncircumcised and the children of Christian Scientists should be forced to take vaccinations, because the government knows better?

I think my view is consistent with libertarianism.


are you saying that newborn babies have the right to self-determination?

Please inform me in what manner did my joke (that was located here)broke posting guidelines? I really would like to know so that I do not make the same mistake again. And no, I am not "mad" or upset about it. I simply don't know why it was taken down. Ahhhh...NO humour intended. Answer honestly wanted.


Does your continued silence mean you made a mistake and the choping of my post was a accident?

Will they be accused of

Will they be accused of antisemitism?

excuse me but most Catholics

excuse me but most Catholics I know are automatically circumcised also...without the ceremony...Other semites (not just Jews) also indulge in this practice...

If so, it is not because of their religion.

There is nothing inherently Christian about circumcision, as was decided by the Apostles. Christ was circumcised under the old Mosaic law which ended with His death and resurrection.

Nor is it just a Jewish

Nor is it just a Jewish practice. The point here is whether a law should be introduced to ban a long standing practice voluntarily indulged by American citizens for whatever reason. Does this ban (should it become law) circumvent the power and rights of the parents.

Shuleba is right...

I can personally attest to that, as can my sons. I was raised Catholic, but my family and self are now not affiliated to any religion other than the church of Mother Nature.

I hope they do so.

This is a barbaric Jewish ritual that medical schools teach as good medicine instead of the brutal, insane act it is. But then medical schools have much influence from Jewish doctors.
