San Francisco will vote on banning male circumcision this November. And goldfish.

Pretty much sums this article up.

If it's been proposed in San Francisco, then it's certain to pass and spread throughout the US soon!

BTW, I'd like to see some of you abortionists defend this measure. If you think that a child doesn't have to "consent" to death, then why should it need to consent to a harmless (actually, beneficial) medical procedure?

While I am fully in favour of the legality of circumcision and think anti-circumcisionists are rather silly, the refutation of your post is quite extremely easy: If something doesn't have personhood, consent is meaningless.

Actually every medical thing that I've ever read seems to indicate that it's not that important whether the child ends up being circumcised or not.. It does indeed have benefits but those same benefits can be gained through proper hygiene and safe sex practices. I wouldn't say I'm anti-circumcision(really I don't think it's a super big deal either way) and it's a really silly thing to rally against.

Banning circumsision is stupid. It's not like the foreskin really helps you, so all this pissy "waaaah, they're removing healthy body parts" is a load of horse crap. Not only that, but it's actually oppressing religion. None of this stopping religions from bearing down on others oppressment, but this is actual, real discrimination against Jews.

^Is banning human sacrifice "religious discrimination?"

And it isn't about whether you need it or not it is about it being unnecessary and not consented for.

Cutting off the end of a kids dick is mutilation and it should be illegal. Especially since you do it without the kid having any say whatsoever.

Doesn't matter if it is aesthetic it's like those people who pierce their kids ears before they can even talk...not okay.

Another absurd anti-circumcision topic. Why have all of these people crawled out of the woodwork all of a sudden? They are so annoying. Do they want to ruin porn by giving us a whole legion of male actors with frightening uncircumcized penises or something? I don't want to see a revival for the horror/porn genre :(
