A proposed ballot for the city of San Francisco could see circumcision banned for newborn males within city limits.
A group led by Lloyd Schofield submitted the initiative to the city’s Board of Supervisors and they would like to see the ban placed on next years November ballot along with a $1,000 fine and a misdemeanor for any children under the age of 18 who receive a circumcision.
For the initiative to move forward Schofield must first collect 7,100 signatures by April 2011.
First no toys in Happy Meals and now this? Come on San Fran! And on a more serious note, the religious implications of trying to uphold such a law seems like a futile attempt.
