A German court of law has governed that parents can’t have their sons circumcised on religious grounds. This move has infuriated Muslim and Jewish assemblies, with an anonymous contact claiming to us that “the rights of the Jewish and Muslim clergies’ have been strickened[SIC] for far too long”.
The court has deemed the act of mutilating a child’s genitals an “intentional bodily harm” and reports on no religious ground would circumcision be seen as an act of religious or health benefit.
This ruling states that “No religious freedoms give grounds for such decisions to be taken for the children”
German courts aren’t the only that have questioned the act of removing a child’s body part with San Francisco’s courts following suit.
“Forced circumcision is fundamentally a human rights violation,” alleged Jonathon Conte, a man who is part of a group that collected more than 7,000 signatures to attempt the ban of circumcisions’ in America. “I feel that all children whether a boy or a girl have a fundamental right to all the body parts that they were born with,” he stated.
I am an uncircumcised male who was never raised in a religious environment with an agnostic family and so I can’t comment on whether or not I feel that I would dispute circumcision, so please, if you have been circumcised or know of the practice – tell us what you think in the comments section.
