Circumcision Ban: San Francisco's newest ban attempt is to ban a very popular, yet elective, medical procedure: circumcision. Known as the un-happy town after banning the Happy Meal, San Francisco is heading for another controversial ban on circumcisions.
Many parents elect to have their male children undergo this relatively minor medical procedure. Those of the Jewish faith also do this as a religious ceremony, but still the man bringing the measure to a vote suggest that a religion or culture should not be an "Excuse" enough to circumcise a baby.
He claims that circumcision is "genital mutation" and that a man's body should be his choice alone.
The ban would make it a misdemeanor to elect the procedure for your child, with a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail.
The backer of the bill must get at least 7,000 signatures on a petition to bring the measure to ballot.
If this were on a ballot would you vote for or against a circumcision ban?
