San Francisco might be proposing a ban a circumcision....
I, personally, absolutely, do not agree with circumcising a child. (My son is not) I also feel that most people with the "it's cleaner" idea, aren't fully educated in the area. That's actually a VERY popular misconception. There is a reason it's not covered be (most) insurance anymore. It's not necessary. It's an elective, cosmetic surgery.
One mother I knew said it best, "Saying preventing UTI's and other infections is why you chose to circumcise your son, is like saying you cut off your pinky to prevent a hangnail. Totally unnecessary."
However, I do think they should make some room for religious reasons... It's a very fine line.... Personally, i don't even agree with religious reasons. You're still cutting off part of a persons body... But exceptions should be made whether we all agree or not...
