SAN FRANCISCO -- In November, San Francisco voters will be asked to weigh in on what was until now a private family matter: male circumcision.
City elections officials confirmed Wednesday that an initiative that would ban the circumcision of males younger than 18 in San Francisco has received enough signatures to appear on the ballot. The practice would become a misdemeanor.

This mountain could turn into a mohel.
So religiously observant Jewish families will have it done outside of San Francisco, as well as those who believe it better for health reasons.
The word Bris means covenant; the word Milah, to cut. Ritual circumcision is the covenant G-d has established with the Jewish people through the commandment of circumcision.
The big government libs in SF have no authority to regulate this personal choice. What happened to the "right to privacy" that they created, or is it like all other lib creations and only applies selectively when the arbiters of political correctness decide to play that card?
All your foreskins are belong to us.
Yep. There is an issue that needs to be addressed by local government.
Sorry, cant do much about the homeless craping in the street...
Most of the “Congress shall not” amendments are now incorporated by court dictums as though they were also “and neither shall states or lower governments.”
Not necessarily. I have known two doctors that are adamantly against it and will counsel young parents accordingly and even more doctors that are for it and will counsel young parents accordingly, even more aggressively, which very effectively removes it from the "private family matter" arena.
Personally, I think it should be an individual decision, and since the poor kid is too young to make the decision, then, well, they'll just have to wait until he's old enough before they go removing a very sensitive portion of his anatomy.
I'm not cut. Don't want to be cut. See no reason to be cut and have never had a hygiene problem, which is the first thing most advocates throw out there. My mama and daddy taught me how to use a wash cloth and soap and none of my wives have died from cervical cancer because I wasn't circumcised, nor any of my mistresses. (All "0" of them.)
But...to each his own.
(Yes, there is a certain amount of sarcasm there, but I see no good reason to perform a circumcision on a child that has no idea as to why it was done and for which there is no good reason given.)
Practioners who perfom circumcisions claim that the pay is lousy, but the tips are great.
Everything in San Francisco makes so much sense.
So, killing an unborn baby is OK.
Circumcising him a week or two later after he is born is a crime?
Next they will want to conduct inspections to make sure that boys are in compliance. There will a new public employee union, Pecker Checkers International Union. There will be plenty of job applicants.
Does Circumcision Prevent AIDS?
What is the male homosexual view of circumcision? That could decide this election?
I’m only half joking here. The gay vote is a big bloc in SF, and, male homosexuals take a major interest in anything related to the male body. A big voter turnout combined with a “gay party line” on the issue could be decisive when the voters vote.
Yep, the “gay male” applicants will be eager to have such a job.
Beat me to the punch by less than a minute.
Why attack circumcision?
Will the prepuce Nazi ban pierced ears or pierced tongues?
Could this ban having anything to do with the hatred that
the leftists, socialist, commies have towards God?
Why don’t they ban anal intercourse in San Francisco?
That practice is much more nasty and deadly than snipping
off loose skin.
God will deal with these people in due time and that
will be worth seeing! I’ve got ring side seats!
>>>So religiously observant Jewish families will have it done outside of San Francisco, as well as those who believe it better for health reasons.<<<
I’m expecting the lawsuit to start the instant the law passes. Temple Emanu-El on Arguello in SF, where Dianne Feinstein worships (and lives next to), is where many wealthy SF Jews have their kids circumcised and I seriously doubt they’ll end the practice just to please the mangy secularists.
Actually ramming a knife through the brain, if they are a late term unborn child, is far more acceptable to these freaks than circumcision.
“Everything in San Francisco makes so much sense.”
To the leftists, you have a right to privacy and “choice” in every conceivable bodily-related act until a child is born. After that... the kid fully belongs to the government.
