The debate over banning circumcision in San Francisco has been long on-going, with passionate folks on both sides. However, banning circumcision up until now has just been talk. That may change soon. The main group who has been seeking to ban male baby circumcision in San Francisco has managed to get their controversial measure on the November ballot. If this measure passes, the act of circumcision will be prohibited among males under the age of 18. If circumcision is done it could end up being punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 or up to one year in jail. Religious exemptions are not included - meaning, parents won't be allowed to circumcise even for religious reasons. Wow right. I've said it before, and I'll say it again; while not a fan or advocate of circumcision myself, banning something like circumcision is a seriously slippery slope. What else relates? Well...
- What if vaccines were required by law.
- What if women could be sent to jail for bottle feeding?
- What if they outlawed homeschooling?
- What if midwives were banned in all states?
- What if the law didn't allow vegetarian kids?
- What if no providers would perform VBACs?
- What if you couldn't choose your own child's name?
