    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    Because court systems make the right decisions all the time. It is a sad day in Germany for religious freedom, whats next something crazy like the death of 6 million innocent people? I am sure this decision won't stop anybody in their tracks from having their son's circed.

    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    Trying to attribute a double standard to circumcision is futile. Socially it is acceptable and a widely practiced almost routine procedure. I do not see it as a human rights issue. Intentionally causing harm, sex trafficking, genocide those are violation to human rights---circumcision with anesthesia? Does not compare much. Having a ban and making circumcision illegal takes away the rights of parents to make their personal decision for their child. Having a ban also IMPOSES others personal, beliefs onto many. No one is advocating for mandatory widespread circs, yet making it illegal will make it wrong? Does not seem fair. How would you feel if I came up to you or it was a law saying you HAD to have your son circed?

    You have no right to "Have one practice go away" when it is so important to a tradition and culture. Whether you think it will not make a difference in an attire race/religion is completely irrelevant. For many it would. Of course there are some Jews who are against circumcision- that doesn't mean anything. Their are also Jews for Jesus so whats your point? I have been to many bris's in my life and it is a holy, and very spiritual ceremony. I don't have to be wrong for you to be right, and you don't have right for me to be wrong. Pushing circumcision and "banning" and making it illegal is in my opinion a bit much. It is the choice of the parents who should make an informed decision. Many people have the right to NOT have their children circ'ed, to take away that right to choose is not "justice for all" P.S. A very good documentary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bx89xECfHG4

    The difference in our arguments is that in no way am I advocating for people to get circumcised. While you are advocating to not get circumcised.

    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    So Jewish/Muslim and many Christians who choose to practice their religion and have their sons circumcised as they have been doing for the past 5,000 years to represent Abraham's covenant with g-d, should have to do so illegally, behind closed doors, in secret? Sounds familiar. Parents have to make choices for their children/babies, for instance what about vaccines? Don't babies have the right to be vaccinated against preventable diseases that can take their lives? Or is there no clear medical necessity for altering a babies natural healthy immune system? Depending upon your facility's policy, Patients have the RIGHT TO CHOOSE what is best for their children and yes *shocker* that includes educating them on circumcision, vaccines, breast feeding and ect. Your personal beliefs should not interfere. Give them the documentation/studies sans your thoughts on how a few circumcision studies must be faulty because you are against circ.

    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    Your beliefs/views are your own and I respect that, however who is anyone to pass judgment on what parents wish to decide for their children. Are you against mothers who willingly choose NOT to breastfeed and bottle feed instead? Are the studies that bottle fed infants are more likely to be obese, have allergies, asthma, diabetes and SIDS more compelling than 0.2% chance of complications from circumcision? Will San Francisco or another state/city then make a law that all women must breastfeed? Obviously breastfeeding/bottle feeding and circumcision are different-- it's the point of goverment interaction, and taking away the rights of parents I am trying to make. Not your baby, not your choice. Similar to not your body, not your choice (abortion). I guess circumcision is wrong, but abortion is acceptable? Mayor Bloomberg is proposing a new law to ban all sugary drinks (soda, iced tea,) greater than 16 0z from all street venders, corner stores, baseball games ect. And they call this country the land of the free?

    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    My personal belief of male circumcison has grown immensley stronger since the begining of this thread. Before this thread I neve thoguht much about circumcison, never really crossed my mind to be honest. Since this thread has been started I feel increadibly strong about male circumcison, my culture, and who I am. I hope to spread the word. Thank you for that.

    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    This issue has been beaten to death. We agree to disagree. I am happy to be circumcised. I will circumcise my sons if I have any. All in the tradition of my Jewish faith, which my ancestors haven been doing for the past 5,000 years or so. Have you ever seen Europa, Europa. Theres a very scary scene where a jewish boy tried to un-circumsise himself in hopes to not be out as a jew and taken to the gas chambers.

    Jury Duty - Could you condemn someone to death?

    I enjoy spirited conversation as well.

    I am Jewish, part of the "chosen" nation by g-d.

    Jury Duty - Could you condemn someone to death?

    Oh please... it is common knowledge that paganism had major influences into Christianity : Non-kosher diet, no circumcision needed- word from g-d or the pagan converts? "that Christ became a servant to the circumcised ...." (Romans 15:8) Jesus had no intention for Non-Jewish followers. In fact those who were not Jewish were seen as "unclean". "Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." (Matthew 10:5,6)1 "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." (Matthew 15:24) "It is not fair to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." (Matthew 15:26)3 Anyway...back to the topic at hand. If there is no shadow of a doubt then why should serial killers be able to have a life sentance and not death? Why have our tax dollars paying for the health coverage and cable tv? Would it not be an act of self-defense for society?

    This is from someone who does not agree with male circumcision, when it clearly is in the bible and done for thousands of years. You cannot cherry pick what you want. "eye for an eye tooth for a tooth"
