    Circumcision still cuts it in San Francisco

    Circumcision still cuts it in San Francisco

    Couldn’t resist the post title.

    Via L.A. Times:

    San Francisco residents will not be voting in November on whether to prohibit circumcision after all, according to a tentative ruling by a Superior Court judge made public Wednesday.

    Judge Loretta M. Giorgi ordered the city’s director of elections to strike the measure from the ballot because she said it was “expressly preempted” by the California Business and Professions Code.

    Under that statute, only the state is allowed to regulate medical procedures, and “the evidence presented is overwhelmingly persuasive that circumcision is a widely practiced medical procedure,” the ruling said.

    The Judge confirmed the tentative ruling today.

    The federal government already bans female genital mutilation. Muslims as well as Jews do religious-based male circumcision. My own feelings on the subject have evolved over the years with attaining more information. It’s a difficult subject to keep emotions out of. Here is information from Doctors Against Circumcision http://www.doctorsopposingcircumcision.org/ and an article by Miriam Pollack from Jewish Women Speak Out at http://www.noharmm.org/pollack.htm

    I left my part in San Fransnipco.
