Gov. bans circumcision bans….
A final nail has been put to a circumcision ban. I am not in favor of circumcision but really that is and should be left up to the parents…
Gov. Jerry Brown on Sunday signed a bill (nsfw) that prevents local governments from banning male circumcision, a law that was conceived earlier this year after a ballot measure that would outlaw the practice appeared headed to San Francisco voters.
Matthew Hess, an activist behind the attempted ban in San Francisco, said Sunday that California had “taken a big step backward. … Circumcision is elective surgery that an adult should be allowed to choose for himself.”
