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.

Need to declare that foreskin is “unborn”. That way, the Mohel practice in SanFranSicko can continue...
San Francisco should be circumcised from the U.S.A.
Both Judaism and some members Islam practice circumcision for religious reasons. How will this jive with First Amendment rights?
while only about 30% of males in the world are circumcised, almost 80% of U.S boys are....totally unacceptable surgery and many do it only to have Jr. look like daddy. Hygene has nothing in the world to do with it, if you are clean, you are clean, if you’re dirty, you’re dirty....no difference at all. Genital mutilation should be illegal for both sexes until they, at a legal age, comply for religious or other reason
Thanks for the tip.
Will this lead to back alley circumcisions?
You get my vote for dumbass post of the day.
There are lot of potential draw backs to this law.
Outrageous! If they have the money to pay for this ballot measure than its proof these fools have way too much access to way too much money.
If this one passes, then they ought to try banning baptism next, since babies are too young to make a decision about that too. Same foolish logic.
If the US Government tried to impose a requirement like this on the State of California, the brain trust in Baghdad on the Bay would be howling so loud you would be able to hear them around the globe. This demonstrates how close to Stalinism Liberalism really is.
Interesting you should mention that in the context of a thread about an example of left-wing anti-Semitism.
I think unborn children play the same role in the ideology of the turn-of-the-21st-century American left that Jews played in the ideology of the Nazis. They are seen as untermenschen who can be killed out of hand, and as a source of great wealth to be plundered (”hey, let’s fund another government program by robbing those who haven’t been born yet: they can’t complain!”).
I’m guessing obama was circumcised and they threw away the wrong part!
Why don’t you think its a valid reason so that jr. can look like daddy? Lots of people raise their children in ways that they were raised. tradition, family morals. etc...
personally, as a woman, I would never sleep with anyone who wasn’t circumsized. I don’t care for the looks of it at all. thats just my opinion.
Isn’t this about how Sir Frances Drake circumsized
the world using a 40 ft. clipper?
SF always on the cutting edge.
“Why yes, it IS expensive, but when you stroke it
it turns into a suitcase.” bada boom.
Oh, man! The FR comedians make me want to donate!
Sweden, where hardly any male is circumcised, has lower rates of STD occurrence than, say, Pakistan, where practically every male is circumcised.
The “hygiene” excuse is bogus, and the only reason hospitals and charlatans therein advocate it is because of the extra income it brings in.
The foreskin is extremely densely innervated and folds over to form the sensory input for the shaft of the penis during intercourse, besides protecting the glans when not in use. It’s not for no reason that such a functional tissue exists on the penis. No male deserves to be deprived of this natural function against his will - through the practice of a disgusting barbarism that has no place in today’s times.
I am Jewish and I was circumcised when I was eight days old. I don’t remember if it hurt, but I couldn’t walk for a year.
Everyone except the screaming crazies in Loonytown...
Oh, sorry..."The City"
Gotta be PC yuh know
Lot of idiots live in that place.
Let me be the first to say mind your own damn business.
Poor thing must have been what happened to me.
