Danes Mull Banning Circumcision

Ad Feedback

COPENHAGEN - The Danish government is considering banning circumcision for boys under the age of 15.
The legislation, recommended by Denmark's National Council for Children, has been supported by the country's Ethics Council.
"Circumcision is the irreversible damage to a child's body before he is given the chance to object," the National Council for Children stated, claiming that the practice also negated sexual equality.
"Just like female circumcision was banned five years ago, male circumcision should be banned," they said.
Rabbi Bent Lexner, the country's chief rabbi who is certified to perform the procedure, said he hoped the government would not pass such legislation.
"The comparison between circumcision and the intentional mutilation of the female sex organ in certain societies is simply complete nonsense," Lexner told the Hebrew language paper Yediot Ahronot.
"If the law forbidding circumcision is ever passed in Denmark, Jews will have to leave the place they've been living in for hundreds of years," he said.
